Fall / Winter 2019-20 Programs

South Shore Soccer is pleased to announce the winter soccer programming for 2019/20.  SSDSA will offer a combination of Local and Travel (NSSL) programming depending on the needs of each age group. 

Local Programming – is run out of HB Studio Sport Centre (once or twice a week depending on the age group) and offers a combination of small-group activities and small sided games to develop individual skills and decision making. Program content is designed to align with the Canadian Soccer Association’s age specific curriculum.

NSSL (Travel) – offers the opportunity to train locally and participate in the NSSL.  Teams will train twice per week and league schedules will depend on a half schedule (approx. 8 away games) or full schedule (approx. 8 home and 8 away games). 

Combined Local and NSSL (Travel) – The U9 through U12 age groups will incorporate the National Skill Centre approach to training and competition.  This program takes a squad based training approach which recognizes different rates of social, technical and physical growth.  Players who have registered for both the Local Program and the NSSL Travel program will train together.  If numbers permit, those registered in the NSSL (Travel) program will participate in a varied team selection from week to week to accommodate all players in the NSSL (Travel) group.

Ultimately, our goal is to create meaningful play in practice and competition to foster individual and group soccer development for all participants. 

Program Pricing – The SSDSA operates each program on a break even based on a minimum number of participants in each age group.  However, prices will vary due to the number of weeks, NSSL league costs and sponsorship for individual programs. SSDSA reserves the right to cancel programs if the number of registrations do not provide for a projected break-even for the program. 

Registration Process

Registration for all winter programming will take place on the SSDSA website (www.sssoccer.ca).  Programs offered are subject to minimum numbers so you are encouraged to register early to ensure your program runs for the winter.
