Development Program

"The North Toronto Soccer Club’s mission is to provide soccer players, coaches and parents of North Toronto the opportunities to learn, play and mature through the game of soccer, regardless of age, gender or capability. The Club objective is to ensure that these opportunities are granted in a fun and safe environment, while promoting the development of soccer."​ 

Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. CS4L links sport, education, recreation and health and aligns community, provincial and national programming. Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) is a seven-stage training, competition and recovery pathway guiding an individual’s experience in sport and physical activity from infancy through all phases of adulthood. Canada Soccer's Wellness to World Cup Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model is designed to optimize Canadian excellence and lifelong wellness through soccer.

LTAD has been developed to answer issues that have historically hampered athlete development in many Canadian sports. LTAD is designed to address problems such as over-competing, under-training, ignoring developmental stages, and more. To find out more follow this link: Issues in Sport

At North Toronto Soccer Club we are developing a Program consistent with Long Term Player Development. We are laying a foundation for all members through Learn to Play and FUNdevelopment that creates an environment of learning for players, coaches and parents – a foundation built upon through Recreational Leagues and a Competitive Program.  The key to success will be communication and education in which we as a Club – parents, players, volunteers, staff and Board of Directors – move in the same direction with our players at centre of our focus.
