Our LTPD League (formerly House League or Recreational) will commence the third week of May annually. Coaches will be contacting you starting on May 1-2 weeks prior to games commencing.


Our LTPD League starts at U4 and goes up to Coed Open Adults division. The Program allows young players to improve their skills and gain an appreciation for the game while still offering opportunities for adults to play, socialize and stay fit.


The Barrie Soccer Club will follow LTPD (Long Term Player Development) principles as outlined by the Ontario Soccer Association. The goal is to ensure every player has the very best possible soccer experience. As such, the official curriculum is outlined below.
For more information see our Long Term Player Development Resources page.

Learning to Play (U9, U10, U11 & U12) - “The Golden Age of Learning”
The effect of the role model is very important at this stage. Children begin to identify with famous players and successful teams and they want to learn imaginative skills. Skill demonstration is very important and the players learn best by “doing”. Players are now moving from self–centred to self–critical and they have a high stimulation level during basic skills training.
