U8-U12 (2014-2010) Open Development Sessions

Open Development Sessions are North Toronto's approach to new players joining our Nitros Development and Select Programs (U8 - U12). In the old model players were told at a young age if they were ready to join a team, with coaches assessing players based on their current ability. At NT we believe in Player Development, it's about how far a player can get not where they start from. This is especially important to consider when we're looking to add players who are just starting out in soccer or sports altogether for that matter.

As such NT has introduced Open Development Sessions (ODS) where we look to have new players join us for some sessions to make sure the environment is best for them and their development. If we, the player or their parents feel the environment is not the best fit then we can look at alternative programs in the club to keep players in soccer and sport in general.

The goal of ODS is to have players in the right environment to keep them playing and enjoying the game which will give us the opportunity to further their development. It's a great opportunity to see where in our Nitros Development Pathway will be best for your child.
