Canada Soccer Programming

The Canadian Soccer Association’s National Teams Program mandate is to consistently identify talent, monitor, assess, train and elevate those identified male and female Canadian soccer players.
Through a recognized, sustainable, domestic and international training and competition programming these players will be prepared and assessed on their readiness to perform at the international level of competition.
The ultimate GOAL of the National Youth Teams  Program is to prepare these players male and female for the Canadian National Youth Teams and ultimately selection to the Senior Men’s and Women’s National Teams competing on the world stage.
