HIGH PERFORMANCE PLAYER PATH// STANDARDS BASED SOCCER LEAGUE OPTION IN LONDON AND AREA
Until the introduction of LTPD, the "Pyramid for Play" (the name of the competitive structure for youth soccer in Ontario) was based on promotion and relegation between multiple levels. The higher the level, the more "competitive" the league. In London, L1 was the highest level of play (OYSL), L3/L4 was regional (WOYSL), L5/L6 was district (LDYSL), while L7 was considered the introductory level (house league).
These soccer athletes would not participate within the local London District Youth Soccer League.
GERMAN CANADIAN FC / LAMBETH FC / LONDON ATHLETIC CANADIAN FC:
These local clubs will continue to operate their successful LDYSL programs for all of their youth teams. However, these clubs do not have an affiliated and central standards based high performance program to promote players. Other clubs have also expressed interest to help London Football Academy in future- and may be included in the very near future.
This will allow an option for all of our soccer players- providing excellent soccer for those at the local level (LDYSL), while not holding back those players that may want to receive higher level of high performance training within an OSA recognized standards based environment.
We are also encouraging additional local clubs to join the affiliation- who agree in Long-Term Player Development (LTPD), player promotion, and collectively helping players each of our local players achieve higher levels of soccer development should they desire.
WHO IS QUALIFIED TO LEAD LONDON FOOTBALL ACADEMY?
The Technical Director will lead the mandate to develop every player and coach involved in the academy programs.
Trials and assessments will be taking place in early September 2014. We encourage all soccer athletes wishing to pursue a high performance path (boys and girls born 2001-2005) to attend these trials and assessments. In addition, numerous parent information sessions will be held. If you would like to attend please contact email@example.com
Information, including assessments dates as they become available, can be found at www.londonfootballacademy.com
