 Philosophy

  • The Academy focus is on individual player development.
  • Keen players need a program designed to deliver more training hours, in a structured environment, with skilled coaches.
  • The Academy provides an age and stage appropriate learning environment for all players, regardless of their baseline skill levels and game understanding.
  • The Academy is not to replace other grassroots programs, rather training at the Academy complements these programs by enriching each players learning and development.

 Coaching

  • Sessions are led by the SPDSA Technical Department Staff.
  • Parent coaches may assist at stations, as a coaching development opportunity.

Program Structure

  • Program is structured following the Canada Soccer and FIFA Preferred Training Model. In this approach each training session is built around activity "stations" that the players move around at regular intervals.
  • The stations focus on, Fundamental Movement, Soccer Technique, Coordination, and Small Sided Games.
  • Each age and stage of development has a technical curriculum that follows the guidelines set out in Canada Soccer's LTPD.
  • Players are grouped based on age and stage of development.
  • Registration details are on the SPDSA website
