Milton Youth Soccer Club Virtual Training Presentation 2021

On Friday, January 8, 2021, Milton Youth Soccer Club rolled out their new 6 Corner Player Development Model and New Online Virtual Training Program for January 2021.  The presentation outlined the Development model, and how the virtual training will be guided by the tenets within the player development model.  Watch below for full details.

Covid Red Zone Training Schedule (November 25 - December 20)

As most of you are aware, Halton Region will be designated as a Red Zone in the province's tiered framework for Covid-19 restrictions following a decision by the Ford government to lower the thresholds for moving regions into more restrictive categories.  Unfortunately for us that has significant impacts regarding our training environments as it pertains to the numbers of participants and coaches we can have in a playing area, and the activities in which we can conduct.  Given these new restrictions, and at the guidance of the Town of Milton, we have constructed a training schedule of 63 different training groups or "Pods" including every player in our Grassroots and Competitive programs, training twice per week.  PLEASE CLICK THE .PDF ATTACHMENT BELOW to see the final schedule to reference the days and times that your son or daughter's Pod will be training.

As always, our members' health and safety is our number one priority throughout these difficult and fluid times, and we will continue to provide you with the best quality programming that we are allowed to under the most recent guidelines set out by the Province of Ontario, Region of Halton and Town of Milton.  As more information is provided to us during the coming week, we will convey that to you all, and indicate how our programming will be affected.  

I hope you all understand our difficult situation and trust that we are doing the absolute best we can for you all.
