Soccer in Schools Program kicking off in BC!

Canada Soccer announces community clubs for phase one of the Soccer in Schools program heading into schools across Saskatchewan, Ontario and British Columbia in Fall 2024. Community clubs will be working alongside Canada Soccer to engage and support their selected schools with nationally developed educator training, age-appropriate video-based curriculum and a student activity booklet. For their participation, schools will receive a legacy banner, equipment package and a Soccer in Schools digital app to utilize the video-based curriculum for years to come.  

We are thrilled to see the enthusiastic participation of community clubs across British Columbia, Ontario and Saskatchewan in the first phase of our Soccer in Schools program.

“We are thrilled to see the enthusiastic participation of community clubs across British Columbia, Ontario and Saskatchewan in the first phase of our Soccer in Schools program. This initiative is designed to bring the joy and benefits of organized soccer directly into schools in partnership with local soccer clubs, providing students with valuable physical, mental, and social skills.” ​- Sara McConaghy, Director, Community and Fund Development.
