2019-2020 Grassroots Development Program

At the U8 to U12 age levels, Ancaster Soccer Club run an inclusive Grassroots Development Program (GDP) that accepts all players who have a desire to play at a competitive level (OPDL, Regional or District).  Our program is aligned with Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model through Canada Soccer based on the four corner development model. Along with developing our players’ technical ability, our curriculum is designed to focus on the player’s decision making and understanding of the game through a variety of small sided games and activities.
