Active Start Summer Soccer
OSC's Active Start Summer Soccer program provides the youngest players within the sport with the tools they need to start their sports careers! During the 12-week season, players will enjoy one weekly session where they will develop their physical literacy skills and become comfortable on the soccer field.
Each player will be placed on a team that will be lead by a volunteer coach. OSC's volunteer coaches are provided with abundant training resources and education to help them be effective in their roles.
Active Start Weekly Sessions
Each weekly session will be run by an OSC Active Start Facilitator who will be assisted by the volunteer coaches. Active Start Facilitators will lead fun and interactive games that will help enhance player's physical literacy skills and begin to learn about the sport of soccer, all while having FUN!
The Active Start program provides two program options for participants: a weekday option and a weekend option. Please note that session days are not interchangeable, but participants are welcome to sign up for both programs in order to enjoy two days of soccer each week!
