Ontario Soccer Player Development Model

The Ontario Soccer Player Development Model is recommended for training grassroots players from the ages of U6-U12. The model allows for players to train in larger groups which help build a child's social network. 

When using the Player Development Model, players will travel in a group throughout the session from and activity to a game back to a activity.

Ontario Soccer Game Leader Program (U6-U8)

The objective of the Game Leader program is to allow for an improved, child friendly approach to supervising small sided games for children U6-U8 and creating more opportunities for parents to get involved. The Game Leader program has been designed by Ontario Soccer Grassroots, Referee and Coaching departments. It is supported and endorsed by the Canadian Soccer Association.

The Game Leader will be trained to achieve a few objectives on the field:

  1. Enable children to have a fun and rewarding experience while competing in small sided games.
  2. Ensure player safety.
  3. Implement simplified rules while keeping the game moving -- limiting stoppages and assisting the young players with all restarts.
