U13-U17 Soccer For Life Outdoor

The Soccer For Life program is for our oldest athletes, ages 13-17, born between 2002 and 2006.  

All divisions play regulation 11-a-side soccer, and all games are played at RIM Park. Parent volunteers are needed to coach at these age levels.

At any stage in the LTPD model, players may choose to play soccer as a purely recreational activity regardless of their level of ability or disability, and soccer can certainly be enjoyed as part of a lifelong wellness plan. Players of all ages and abilities sometimes stop playing due to other interests, lack of success, shortage of playing opportunities, poor leadership, or other reasons. The LTPD model promotes personal success to ensure they remain enthusiastic and choose to stay involved in soccer and sport in general.

This league is run for social and fitness benefits that align with Ontario Soccer’s Soccer for Life program.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Physical training in the Soccer for Life stage follows appropriate guidelines in the areas of endurance, strength, and flexibility training to promote continued activity among participants. Technical training may present new skills, or it may simply focus on maintaining skills already acquired. Basic tactics are sufficient to enjoy the game, and the mental focus is on having fun, stress release, and maintaining a fitness discipline.

Apart from the benefits of lifelong wellness through soccer, adult recreational players can also become active in the coaching and administration of the sport. LTPD encourages the recruitment and retention of players, coaches, referees, and administrators as a means of supporting the ongoing development of both grassroots and elite soccer in Canada.
