Program Description

At CUSC we place an enormous emphasis on teaching and inspiring our youngest players.  We are not  a club that hopes to "recruit" talented players for our top teams, as we firmly believe that we can develop top players from within our very own ranks here at the club.   This program serves as the starting point for all young players at our club.  It exposes them to some of our senior level coaching staff, gets them exposed to the fundamentals of the beautiful game through age-appropriate exercises and games.  

This program is also continually watched and scouted for potential players for the Jr Academy and in some cases full academy programs, should they show the focus and ability to train at the next level.

Designed with the Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Stage 1: Active Start, the program will see players alternate between small sided games each week, as well as age appropriate technical exercises (ie: 1v1s, dribbling, passing, finishing, ball mastery) and physical literacy drills (movement based, strength, agility, coordination, balance, etc).

This program is fun, productive, and sells out every year, so register soon!
