The North York Cosmos Development Program
The Summer Development program is designed to help players improve their ball skills and develop their soccer ABC's: Agility, Balance and Coordination, while gaining a greater understanding of the game. Sessions are designed to reflect the age of the player in accordance with Ontario Soccer Associations Grassroots Development Standards. Players are encouraged to use their imaginations and creativity with the freedom to make mistakes and learn through trial and error. We strive to create a FUN and informative environment where kids of all skill levels and abilities have the opportunity to build confidence through maximizing time on the ball, movement and play.
