Program Description


The Soccer Ninjas program is the starting point of youth soccer development, and is open to all young players in Ottawa. The program is fun, productive, and popular, selling out every year, so register soon!


Our aim in this program is to produce exactly what the title says - Soccer Ninjas:  kids who can run jump, sprint, roll, spin with grace and precision, while also being comfortable with a ball at their feet. 


Game play is in the program, of course, and basic playing concepts are introduced, but the real emphasis is on physical literacy (overall athleticism), individual soccer skills, and FUN!  We want these players to learn to love the game first!  For these reasons, the program exposes players to some of our most qualified coaching staff at the club.
