Canada Soccer announces 39 first-ever National Youth Club Licence holders

Posted on 31 July 2019 in Canadian Soccer Association

Canada Soccer is pleased to announce that 39 clubs in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario have been provisionally granted the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence. 

As the highest amateur youth club designation in the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada. The Program is a key component to Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May 2019. 

“We are pleased to announce the exemplary 39 National Youth Club Licence holders that have worked diligently over the past 12 months to demonstrate a willingness to improve, to collaborate, and most importantly to raise the level of youth football in our country,” said Jason deVos, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Each club worked with Canada Soccer and their respective Provincial and Territorial Member Association to define a roadmap of standards designed to improve the experience for all who participate in the game.”  

The organizations have been granted the National Youth Club Licence 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. National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical; support their Provincial and Territorial Member Association and Canada Soccer Pathways; and must participate in standards-based leagues in their Province or Territory by 2020. 

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 Association Members and incorporating international best practices.
