The launch of the Soccer in Schools program is important because it addresses critical needs and opportunities within the school environment, driving meaningful education to those delivering soccer in schools.  

Physically, soccer provides an excellent cardiovascular workout, improving endurance, strength, and coordination. Mentally, soccer helps develop essential life skills such as teamwork, communication, and leadership, as students learn to work together towards a common goal. Socially, playing soccer helps build friendships and a sense of community, providing a supportive environment where students can thrive. 

Canada Soccer will look to expand the Soccer in Schools Program to other Provinces in the coming years.  For more information on Soccer in Schools, please visit
