Pickering Football Club is 1 of only 39 clubs across the country to be recognised with a Canada Soccer National Youth License. ONLY clubs that have passed stringent criteria established by Canada Soccer have been awarded a license. This is the first phase of the license which will introduce lower levels of classification in the coming months.
Football has been void of a clear and precise assessment tool measuring a club’s ability to deliver effective football programming in its entirety. Lines were often blurred until Ontario Soccer began working toward clarity by creating OPDL as a standards-based league identifying a small group of clubs capable of maintaining these standards.
Canada Soccer has now expanded on the OPDL standards and created a national Licensing System where the most progressive 39 clubs, of over 1000 across Canada, are being recognised for their ongoing effort.
These standards are far-reaching; they take us beyond the pitch, they take into consideration the complete needs and well being of every individual participant making PFC your destination club!
Parents, players, coaches, match officials, and anyone involved in football across the country should be aware of how prestigious an honour this is and the great efforts that clubs like Pickering Football Club have gone to in building our programs, people, and facilities to this point.
The License is an ongoing process and doesn’t mean we get to sit back and relax. Assessments, training, and support are ongoing with the summary below outlining what a club like PFC has to demonstrate on an ongoing basis:
Grassroots (U8-U12) program assessments by Provincial staff twice a year
Complete curriculum from U3-Adult including pathways for Players, Coaches, and Match Officials
Inclusive programs serving our entire community
A holistic approach that supports each players physical, mental, social/emotional and technical development
A Sports Science Plan including; strength/conditioning, injury prevention, and anti-doping
A Facility Strategy to improve the infrastructure of soccer facilities in our province
Licensed Coaches at all Development and Competitive levels
