By implementing the LTPD philosophy, supported by good coaching methodology, players will benefit from and enjoy practice sessions more. All sessions will focus on player development in a low stress, supportive, positive, fun‐filled and safe environment.
During the practices, players will spend an allotted time at each station having fun, being introduced to and developing specific skills and qualities before moving onto the next station. By using station work, we create an environment where players are continually motivated and that they are continually challenged.
All sessions take a holistic approach to developing our young athletes focusing on the Four Corner LTPD model which consists of technical, psychological, physical and social/emotional components. The Four Corner approach places the player at the center of the development process with soccer experiences that meet the four key needs of the player.
These age groups play on Saturday mornings at Rockmosa Park, 110 Rockmosa Drive, Rockwood.

All players need to have a medical form on file in case of emergency.
Mandatory Parental Supervision
This age group requires that a parent/guardian MUST be on-site (i.e. at the field) each week. Should you need to leave the area (i.e. take another child to the bathroom, run to your car etc) please ensure that you designate another parent (not one of your coaches) to keep an eye on your player. Our coaches’ responsibility is to ensure that each player has a great time at both the practice and game – they are not babysitters.
Our soccer program runs rain or shine. The only time soccer is cancelled is if there is lightening/thunderstorms. Please check the home page of the website or your email for up to date cancellations and field closures. When faced with heat alerts, our Coaches will have the players take more frequent breaks to ensure that they stay properly hydrated. Please always make sure your player has water at the fields. If you forget your water bottle, the concession is usually open.
