Glen Shields Futbol Club's Development Program


We at Glen Shields Futbol Club are very proud to be one of the first clubs in Ontario to implement the Canadian Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development (LTPD) program. This program has been mandated by the Canadian Soccer Association throughout all provinces. The Glen Shields FC is a leader in the soccer community and is the first Club to implement LTPD throughout our system, rather than just a few age groups.

LTPD was developed based on The Long Term Athletic Development program created by Canadian Sport for Life and based on many years of research. LTPD is designed to deliver an age appropriate program which will develop the basic movement skills (agility, balance, coordination) through the game of soccer. The goal is to develop physical literacy as outlined by Canadian Sport for Life and Physical and Health Education Canada. The focus is on: training methods geared toward specific development stages, games and competition; not wins and loses.

Canada's National Team U15 Soccer Coach, Dave Benning whose 2 kids play in our House League, says:

"Our young children need to play where they have the chance to touch the ball as much as possible during the entire time of the whole practice, including the time allotted for the small sided games & technique training. The technique training allows them to learn how their body moves more efficiently and improve their co-ordination, agility & balance the basics to be a good athlete. Playing in small numbers allows my kids & others to feel part of the team both physically & mentally. They will have the chance to develop in stages as they do at school. There are of course some players who develop faster & they should be encouraged to move to the competitive teams within the club. The new program has changed the view of my children from saying 'No' to soccer to 'Yes!'

We are very proud of the quality programs we are offering these young children in order to ensure that all players have the opportunity to develop to their full potential.
