Spring & Summer 2017 Recreational Soccer Leagues
North Toronto Soccer Club (NTSC) Recreational Program is committed to providing a rewarding, enjoyable soccer-playing experience for all participants regardless of ability or experience, in consistency with Canada Soccer Wellness to World Cup Long-Term Player Development Model. Every player should be provided with the opportunity to learn and love the game of soccer in a positive, fun and safe environment. We believe that love of the game begins with mastery of the ball and that these skills can best be attained through a combination of structured training programs and game play. The Program also gives coaches an opportunity to develop their own passion for soccer, and the Club an opportunity to stimulate, encourage and promote good coaching practice in a supportive and enthusiastic environment. Our primary objective is to help the children in our community to enjoy the game now, and love it for life.
There are two distinct outdoor leagues; players may participate in one or both.
The leagues are recreational (not competitive). All players are welcome, no soccer skill or experience necessary.
