Canada Soccer has approved 13 new Quality Soccer Provider clubs in British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Saskatchewan under its Club Licensing Program. The announcement brings the total number of clubs licensed under the Canada Soccer Youth Club Licensing Program to 77.
Organizations are granted Canada Soccer Club Licences for a period of two years and have created a collaborative work plan to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements and progress to further achieve the standards set by Canada Soccer.
Canada Soccer Quality Soccer Provider clubs must abide by the Canada Soccer’s Standards for Quality Soccer, designed to outline the minimum expectations of member organizations in Canada. It is expected that all member organizations provide a developmentally appropriate, safe, enjoyable, accessible, inclusive and welcoming playing environment for their participants, which differentiates it from non-member soccer and unorganized play. In order to be considered, member organizations must also be in good standing with their governing organization(s) and meet the expectations of membership.
Canada Soccer’s Club Licensing Program was launched in 2017 with the Canada Soccer Professional Club Licence. Canada Soccer announced the expansion of the program to youth soccer in 2018 in collaboration with Provincial and Territorial Member Associations and incorporating international best practices.
