Grassroots Development Program

The Soccer Club of Toronto Grassroots Development program is for players from the age of under 8  to under 12 for both males and females. All players will train throughout the year under the direction of Isaac Onibudo (Manager of Grassroots Development).

The overall objective of SC Toronto’s Grassroots Development program is to create a developmental environment for every player that matches his/her individual playing needs and abilities. To do this, SC Toronto will be following CSA’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD).
