The primary focus of the Training Program is to develop young players in a fun learning environment. The program follows Ontario Soccer's LTPD model utilizing the FIGC (Italian Soccer Federation) training methodology. At the younger ages, the major focus is on developing the coordination capacity and technical competency of the player.
The program is open to all players born from 2017 to 2009 and allows all players wishing to develop their skills a chance to do so in a professional learning environment. The program is in addition to the scheduled Festival League on Thursday. If your child expresses an enthusiastic interest in soccer and has shown good skills or general coordination ability, then it is an excellent program for them. The program is overseen by our Technical Director, led by our Pre-Academy Head Coach, and support from our Technical Assistants.
