Program Overview

Nitros Development Player of the Month


Program Overview 

The North Toronto Advanced Development Program is for players U11 and U12 for both females and males. Players in the ADP will train throughout the year under the direction of the ADP Manager and their assigned Head and Assistant Coaches. All staff are trained specifically to work with these age groups to develop a global player. 

The objective of the Advanced Development program is to create an environment that concentrates on the Four Corner Model and that meets players' individual needs. This contains technical, tactical, physical and psychological components of the game. 

To do this, NTSC will be following CSA’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD)

Season Duration and Commitment

The 2022/23 Indoor Season (Fall and Winter) begins in mid-October and runs until the end of April. Sessions will be indoor on turf. 

As players develop throughout their time at North Toronto Nitros, they will be provided with the opportunity to continue in the program if the following minimum requirements are met: 

For our U11 - U12 players have a total of 4 events (3 practice and 1 game) during the Outdoor season, 100% attendance is expected - please see our vacation policy under Parent FAQ​.

Practice Format

All North Toronto Nitros practices we will be following the Ontario Soccer Player Development Model. North Toronto Nitros have created an adapted version of the model which can be seen here: 4 Corner Model

Four staff coaches work with players at each training session; one at league games (U9-U12). All coaches have training and experience working with children.
