GCFC continues to encourage use of OSA Grassroots resources
Date: Thursday August 6 2015

Like progressive clubs within Ontario, German Canadian FC once again encourages its youth coaches and parents to take advantage of the Ontario Soccer Association Grassroots resources. A direct link to the grassroots initiative will also be part of our updated Rep team manual found here

The goals of grassroots soccer are:

  • To ensure this first experience is fun and enjoyable and revolves
    around child-friendly soccer. Most of all, it is to have them fall in
    love with the game.

  • To provide an opportunity for players to use their imaginations, be
    creative and learn through trial and error. Mistakes are OK.

  • To offer age and stage appropriate development activities with
    improved playing formats such as 5v5, 7v7 and 9v9 with ball, goal
    and field size appropriate to physical and cognitive stage

  • To educate coaches so they will make the soccer experience a
    challenging, positive and nurturing one for all young players
    regardless of ability, that leads to Soccer for Life.
