The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes is excited to be offering Outdoor Soccer programs for children and youth in the City of Kawartha Lakes by working with the Jumpstart Get In The Game Program. A pilot program launched by Jumpstart and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada that aims to remove barriers keeping many kids from participating in organized sports and physical activities. This program brings together Jumpstart’s funding support and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s network of chapters to help even more kids get off the side lines and into the game. See link on the right hand column for more information about outdoor soccer program locations and parent information.
Our Outdoor Soccer programs are following the guidelines of the LTAD/LTPD Soccer Development Model which are about putting the player first and offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer. Making the game fun is key in teaching and coaching, so that players will continue in the game and may even coach or referee as they get older. Developing our participants to become Active for Life.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes Outdoor Soccer programs will be following the Active Start, FUNdamentals and Learn to Train Stages of the Long Term Athlete Development/Long Term Player Development Soccer Model.
