About Advanced Development Program (U8 - U12)

Advanced Development Program

 The Oakville Soccer Club believes in providing a “Positive Soccer Experience" to all members. Everyone at OSC deserves the opportunity to develop their abilities to their full potential. As such, OSC is proud to offer the Club's Advanced Development Program (ADP).

Skill development is the primary goal for all youth players, particularly between the ages of 7 and 12, as outlined in the CSA’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model. OSC will focus its resources on skill development by creating a developmental environment for every player that matches his/her individual playing needs and abilities. As players mature, they need to be given the freedom to move up or down the competitive spectrum, depending on what environment best meets their developmental stage.

The Oakville Soccer Club is pleased to announce that on Sunday, June 23rd , 2019 and Sunday, July 21st the Club will be holding an Open House for all players born in 2012 (current U7 players that will move to U8 in the Fall). This Open House is an opportunity for players to work with the Oakville Soccer Club’s experienced Technical Staff during a one (1) hour technical activities and small sided games session.

During the session the coaches will be working with the players to identify the best pathway for each player moving forward in to the 2019/20 season. The pathways available include the Advanced Development Program (ADP), Open Development Program (ODP), House League and the Footwork 1v1 program.

As an advocate for Long Term Player Development, the Oakville Soccer Club strives to ensure our practices are in line with those mandated by Ontario Soccer. As of the 2016-17 Fall/Winter season, OSC no longer requires that U9-U12 Advanced Development Program players participate in program evaluations (try-outs).

All current ADP players will have the opportunity to register for the proceeding season. Program spaces that remain vacant in each age group, after the current player registration deadline has passed, will be filled by players identified by OSC Technical Staff through the Club's Open Development, House League and House League Development programs.

If you are interested in joining the U9 - U12 ADP program, please contact OSC's Manager of Grassroots Programs Gareth Davies at gdavies@oakvillesoccer.ca or by phone at 905-849-4436 ext. 4453 for more information.
