Subject: Roll-out of Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program in Ontario

Ontario Soccer is preparing to roll-out the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program across the Province. This rollout has been previously communicated in bulletin I2018-041. In order to provide an opportunity for organizations to review the criteria outlined and identify their eligibility for the program, workshops for Districts, Leagues, Clubs and Academies have been developed. Applications to join the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program will open in March 2019.

Workshops can be organized by one or multiple organizations and can be scheduled via Ontario Soccer’s Player Development Program team.

Additionally, Ontario Soccer’s LTOD (Long Term Officials Development) team will provide updates on the new Club Minimum Standards, Best Practices Guidelines and an outline of how Ontario can assist organizations in meeting expectations for Canada Soccer Club Licensing in relation to Match Officials Development.

Organizations wishing to host a workshop, or seeking more information about the Canada Soccer Youth Club License Program, are encouraged to contact Gabriella Trichilo, Regional Manager – Player Development.
