During the spring season, the Soccer for Life (S4L) program offers a structured weekly dome sessions following our Hornets methodology, with session plans which reflect the principles of the Long Term Player Development program under the guidance of the Technical Director. Additionally, the S4L program includes weekly gym sessions. The gym sessions offer benefits not found in the full-size game as players refine their technique through faster game play in a smaller area. It also develops technically sound players who are able to play at faster speeds, improving fundamental skills, game awareness, agility, and shot power.
Players and teams transition from indoor training to outdoor fields sessions and league games in the summer season. The teams are expected to compete in league games (East Region Soccer League - ERSL) in addition to their two outdoor training sessions per week. Additionally, teams might schedule exhibition games and compete in different tournaments during the season. This will be determined by the Head Coach in discussion with the parents and Team Managers.
For ERSL game nights, please go here.
What additional costs can I expect?
In addition to the Club Registration fee, each player must purchase a Hornets game uniform kit at the cost of approx. $80, and mandatory soccer equipment such as cleats, shin guards and a soccer ball. The game uniform can be purchased directly through Houle Sports (Hornets official supplier); however, we recommend to buy the uniform through your Team Manager.
Team fees are agreed in consultation with your Team Manager. This includes, but is not limited to: coaching fees, equipment, tournament costs, and costs associated with mandatory gym and/or dome sessions during Spring training.
Fundraising events and campaigns are encouraged, and should be considered an important way to offset team fee costs.
Any questions regarding the Club Registration Fee and or Team Fees, please contact the club to firstname.lastname@example.org
SOCCER FOR LIFE - Long Term Player Development
As children move into adolescence, official league standings are introduced and the game becomes more competitive, with more emphasis on strategy and tactics. With a steady increase in training time during the next several years (U13 - U18), a move to larger-sided games and year-round play, the most advanced players are given opportunities for further their soccer development in colleges and universities or with the Canada Soccer Pathway's EXCEL program. Others may decide to continue playing recreationally after this stage.
