In Africa or in Brazil young children learn
to play soccer in the streets. They play before school, during
recess and after school everyday of the week. There are usually
no adults or parents or even coaches during those times except
for security guards or caretakers at school or policemen at
the playgrounds. All aspects of the game( technique, tactics
and conditioning) however are developed by playing in simple
situations. The goal is in winning the game.
In Canada it is completely the opposite.
the streets are over crowded and dangerous and are no place
for children. The children also have other sports that they

The training activities are always geared to the age and the
ability of the child. We offer high quality demonstrations
from guest professionals or former National team stars.
Players will be required to play some small sided games in
1v1 and 2v2 tournaments.
