2021 OUTDOOR – PROGRAM OVERVIEW

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

WMSC aligns its Recreational program with Ontario Soccer’s Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) program. LTPD is about putting the player first and offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer. Making the game fun is key in teaching and coaching so that players will continue in the game and may even coach or referee as they get older.
