Grassroots Academy Program
Pickering Soccer Club (PSC) promotes a positive and dynamic environment which aligns with Long Term Player Development principles and is underscored by the Four Corner Model for development. This gives us the best chance of ensuring the potential in each player, coach, and match official meets with their actuality. In order for us to achieve our goal, we must educate coaches and parents on the importance of a “Player Centred” philosophy in everything we do.
Our programs are designed for Boys and Girls from U8 to U12.
Our Technical Program Values:
- Excellence, through regular reflection and incremental changes to the way we do business each day, whether on the field or off the field.
- Inclusive, through a wide range of programs that meet the needs of the whole community and seeks out opportunities to engage more members.
- Engaging, through great programs and dynamic coaches that bring the game to life and instill a passion for the game that carries on outside of the Club environment.
- Progressive, through the refinement of internal processes, delivery of new technical programs, and creative ways in which we can do business.
