The Soccer for Life Program provides an environment where players can develop technique, skill, creativity and game-understanding to their full potential.
Long-term player development drives all coaching activities at North Toronto Nitros Soccer and lies at the core of the Competitive Program which is now overseen by UEFA A coach and Canadian Youth License holder Iain King.
Our aim at Nitros is to have three vibrant squads at each age group from Provincial (OPDL) to Regional (CSL) and District (TSA) and our coaching curriculums at each level are age and stage appropriate.
They are centred around the PERSON and the player, at bringing out the most in each individual in the best environment possible for them to enjoy the Beautiful Game.
In the Competitive Program we task our coaches with crafting their work to suit the specific needs of each age group, ensuring that all players are given the opportunity to maximise their potential. Our key target is to find a way to match their level of commitment with their stage of development.
Players are developed in the programs through a holistic approach involving the four key aspects of athletic training: the technical, the psychological, the physical and the social/emotional.
We believe that long-term love of the game arises from the enthusiasm of coaches who foster the development of technique, skill, game awareness and creativity.
The starting point for all soccer development is mastery of the ball but our coaches also aim to instil crucial life-skills in our players from teamwork, dedication, perseverance to discipline, hard work and the bravery and imagination to express yourself on the field. That's what being a Nitro is all about.
