Indoor Skills Development Camps
The objective of these programs is to provide further development to players in a positive fun learning environment. It focuses on developing soccer skills following North Toronto's club DNA and the Club's alignment to the Long-Term Player Development (LTPD)initiated by the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA). LTPD is a scientific model for periodized athlete training and development that respects and utilizes the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional growth in athletes. These programs are designed as a player pathway that will help to develop a solid foundation towards future participation in soccer at North Toronto Soccer Club, and in school soccer.
The skills development program is designed to serve recreational players looking to grow in the game of soccer. Players will learn and improve new and existing technical capabilities and begin to understand how to transfer these into a game situation. The session completed will create players who are comfortable with the ball at their feet, and can address and succeed in any situation that may present itself. The environment created by coaches will challenge all players appropriately developing increased confidence and motivation to improve in soccer.
Train to be a Nitro
The Train to be a Nitro program is designed to challenge the physical, mental, and emotional growth of players born between 2011 and 2013. The program is focused on individual skill development with an advanced technical curriculum that is specific to this age and ability.

During the program players will be provided with verbal and written feedback from the technical coach to aid development. The feedback and assessment criteria used will be aligned to the competitive periodization and age group objectives. The overall goal is to better prepare all individuals for the North Toronto Nitros development and competitive programs.
