The M Program

The NSGSC 2020-21 U11 and U12 M Program

The NSGSC M (Metro) program is designed to cater to our U11/12 Division 2 teams as they transition through to U13. These teams will be invited into the program and at U13 they will be exposed to high-performance opportunities on the North Shore.

  • NSGSC Metro Selects

  • NSGSC Division 1 Selects

This program will aid in their preparation and help NSGSC develop a wider base of players to complement both these pathways.

Our previous model only works towards those that will eventually leave the club to participate in our HPL regional partner’s programming. With the inclusion of a metro development program, it allows us to create an understanding of what to expect when our young players graduate into the U13 year.

The program would consist of one weekly session:

  • Starting Tuesday, Sept 29th, 5:30 to 6:15 pm (U11) 6:30 to 7:15 pm (U12) @ The NSGSC Indoor Facility – Teams or players will have the opportunity to attend NSGSC staff coach led session at the Indoor Facility. Professional coaches will deliver sessions based around a structured developmental curriculum. Coaches may be asked to rotate through each of the groups to expose the players to different levels of coaching and to allow the coaches to further their knowledge of each individual. This program is optional. The Indoor Facility may be structured as below and ALL sessions will be organized to adhere to current BC Soccer/Via Sport guidelines:

  • 11 Sessions in the Fall, 9 in Winter (total of 20 sessions)

  • Cost is $500 per player and can be paid in full or in 2 instalments - Fall $275 and Winter $225

  • Professional NSGSC technical staff led environment.

  • All sessions indoor out of the elements.

Slightly Longer Sessions-Same Price

We've added an extra 10 minutes to the end of these sessions to give you 200 bonus minutes of training!  Please note the new end times below.

Current “Phase 1” safety protocols

 

Unfortunately due to current social distancing guidelines, we can only populate the Indoor Facility with a certain number of individuals so for this to work safely we will not be able to accommodate parents during the sessions.

Also if the situation changes and return to play allows, we would look to create 11 v 11 exhibition environments against teams within the club and around the lower mainland and would have professional support from the club’s technical staff. Additional tournaments could also be implemented into the program.

We would make sure that the players would be up against suitable opponents dependent on their competitive level of play.

The Technical staff will be solely responsible for selecting these game-day rosters.

Teams would continue to participate in their regular BCCGSL games on Sundays, if applicable due to current COVID-19 restrictions.  See current safety protocols .

We believe that such programming which targets a larger number of our membership is a positive step towards enhancing our opportunities to develop more high-performance players.
