Grassroots soccer is not about the amount of trophies you win. It's about the difference you make to a young person's life.
Ensuring that children play and train in the correct environment is important to their development as young people and players. As per Ontario Soccer, there are no “call ups” for grassroots players (U8 to U12). Only under specified circumstances, identified and evaluated players may gain approval from our Technical Director. A younger aged player may only play with an older age group after the appropriate evaluation process/form have been completed.
Grassroots players are prohibited from being evaluated to play more than one (1) year older.
If a player is evaluated to play up to a higher age group, they should be registered to that age group for the entire season and/or the remainder of the season. U12 players are not permitted to be used as “call ups” to U13 teams for The Ontario Cup and/or any other form of competition.
