The new season begins September 14, 2024.

The Little Lions (formerly Street Soccer) Program takes place on Saturday mornings at Ambleside Park (Fred Jopson Grass Field, link - https://goo.gl/maps/xcndn35NwyCTUJjd9). This is an introductory program that teaches children the needed skills and basic rules of how to play the game while developing in a fun, engaging and simple coaching styled environment. 

Your children will need soccer boots/cleats and shin guards. Also have their rain clothing/boots ready for the winter months when it gets cold and wet. 

We will supply a jersey, shorts and socks. This is included within your registration fee.

Introducing our Little Lions Program

▲Top

Ages 4 to 6 (U5-U7)

Our Little Lions Soccer Program, formerly named Street Soccer, is for our youngest players.  This grassroots program, run by staff coach Adam Aziz, introduces the fundamentals of soccer but also focuses on players having a fun time.  Creating a soccer foundation based on players having fun enables us to keep players engaged and interested. Skills improve with each kick of the ball.
