Program Details


Program Information: 


  • Twice weekly training with staff coaches in dome - 90 minutes.
    • October training is outdoors.
    • In November training moves indoors.
  • Games based gym sessions are once weekly beginning in November, and are run in a futsal format.

Competitive Games: 

  • U11-U12 teams will play in either the "Coliseum" indoor league (up a year), or the EODSA or similar competitive leagues.   9-a-side friendly games will be organized through the season if 9-a-side is not the league format being used during league games. 

Program Length:

October through March (24 weeks with a 2 week break for Christmas).  


Open Tryouts in September. See try-out schedule and details here. 


Note: All interested players must register for the "Competitive Base Program" ($450) prior to the start of tryouts.  All trialists will be placed either in an Academy team, a Cobra team or a Futsal development team, so as to be placed with players of similar abilities. Competitive teams train twice weekly (a third session is optional) and play in local competitive leagues.  The Futsal development teams train once weekly  in the U9-U16 Winter Technical Training and play in the CUSC Winter Futsal league.  Both of these programs are covered by the competitive base registration fee, so no further payments are required.  A refund may be requested, less a $50 tryout fee at that point, should a player not be interested in continuing in the program that they are placed in, and make the request within 2 business days of their offer being sent out.
