For the 2023 season, TOP Soccer will be offering Academy teams for players born between 2009-2015. The TOP Soccer Academy Teams offer players a unique approach to competitive soccer by offering local practices, manageable schedules, and quality coaching, all while improving players' individual skills and providing a great experience.
We believe in focusing on the process, not the outcome, with all of our practices and games, and believe strongly that age-appropriate development is the best way to keep kids in sport longer. We structure our practices so that players are placed into small groups rotating through stations focusing on individual skills, technical instruction, and game-based learning. We believe our small group format is essential for kids to get individual feedback, quality coaching, and high-level engagement. All practices take place in Midtown Toronto, while some games and/or tournaments may require minimal travel.

Fall Season: Early September to Mid-November
