Let the kids play, have fun, and learn!

Our Pre-Academy development program is based around the Canadian Soccer Association Long-Term Player Development Pathway. Our focus is on fun games, physical literacy, and soccer skill development by playing a variety of games with and without the ball. Our philosophy for the Pre-Academy programs is to develop a passion for the game of soccer and a love for the ball. Players have the opportunity to experience a team environment and build social skills by interacting with new players.

THE PRE-ACADEMY PROGRAMS ARE CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE IN FRENCH.
