About Us

WHO ARE WE?

Sporting Canada Soccer Academy Institute is a federally and provincially recognized not-for-profit organization.

 

WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?

We operate in Mississauga, Ontario- and run our leagues mainly in the west-end of the city.

 

WHAT DO WE DO?

We run various soccer programs for boys & girls born between 2003-2015 (inclusive). All skill levels and abilities are welcome!

House-League: This is a recreational program. Most participants register with the aim of learning the sport, learn or develop technical skills, and achieve overall fitness goals.

  • Our house-league program is the equivalent of “development” programs at most clubs/academies in the GTA.
  • The training program offered is designed specifically to ensure optimum growth and learning, and to influence a life-long healthy lifestyle.
  • Co-ed Leagues (boys & girls)
  • Paid/licensed coaches, weekly homework (2 components), uniform, progress report-card & medal included.
  • 12-week program (3 seasons/year)
  • 1 class/week: Training session + Game
    • Weekday OR Weekend options available.
  • For more information please visit our House-League information page.

 

Development League (House-League PLUS): This program is designed for those participants who play recreationally but also want to get extra training, or those players who aspire to play competitive/rep soccer and would like to gain the necessary skills.

  • This program is integrated with the house-league program; the child would participate in the house-league program (practice + game), and take part in 1 training session with our competitive Academy team coaches.
  •  Technically and tactically driven program.
  • 12-week program (3 seasons/year)
  • 2 classes/week: 2 Training sessions + Game
    • at least one has to be a weekday (competitive Academy team training session).
  • Minimum age: 8 years old.
  • For more information, please visit the Development League (House-League PLUS) information page.

 

Competitive (rep): This program is intended for proficient youth soccer players.

  • Our competitive Academy teams compete on regional and provincial levels against other clubs/academies; a high level of awareness, attitude, and skill is required to play at this stage.
  • In order to join this program the player will have to undergo a full assessment (try-out). It is up to the discretion of the head coach to choose the team members.
  • 95% of our competitive players have come up through our system (house-league –> development –> competitive Academy team). Our in-house scouts are always watching our own player’s development and scouting our future competitive talents.
  • Season length: The competitive teams train year-round, a few weeks vacation are given between seasons.
  • 2 seasons/year
  • 2-3 practices/week + scheduled game.
  • For more information please visit the Competitive Program information page.
