Working with our youth, our academy provides highly educated, qualified, and certified coaches who strive to create a positive environment based on learning through good habits and a focus on long-term athletic development.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is to ensure everyone has the opportunity to play and enjoy the soccer experience at a grass root level. Basics and foundations of soccer principles are the main focuses - with success coming naturally from effort and commitment on the part of players/coaches. This academy aims to create an environment for all players within our respective program to play and develop at a level that is appropriate to them; having fun, all while being challenged and motivated/driven to develop. From there, any outstanding talent or player who excels at all levels/aspects of soccer will be invited to our competitive Rep Team - which consists of a U10 and U12 team participating in the Scarborough District Development League, and a U14 team currently competing the in the Toronto District Youth Soccer League (Tier 1 division).

Mission

Within our developmental program, our mission is to build a child-centered, development focused sports culture with XTSC youth soccer that nurtures and inspires each and every individual in a positive and safe environment. We strive for short-term success but with a focus on long-term development. We believe in order to achieve learning and to inspire/promote development; consistent and quality coaching is of paramount importance, along with a structured but flexible module centered on the needs of each group of young athletes?.
