2020 Schedule and Pricing Now Available
The Nepean Hotspurs offer the opportunity for youth players U4-12, to participate in recreational soccer as part of its “Let the Kids Play” (LKP).
The Program provides a once a week or twice a week option. The twice a week option includes a practice and a play session each week. Practices are based on game-oriented activities that teach the basics of soccer and emphasize healthy activities. The play sessions include a short warm up followed by scrimmages within or between groups with optimal ball touch and play. The once a week option is a condensed version of the twice a week option which combines both game related activities and a play session. Sessions are delivered by coaches who have been provided age appropriate coaching skills under the guidance of our National A licensed Technical Director. Parents who are interested in coaching will be trained and supported by the Club and must complete the Club’s volunteer screening process.
The Program start has been postponed due to the social distance measures being implemented to prevent spread of COVID-19. The Hotspurs will look to implement a summer season when and/if it is approved by government health officials and our sanctioning bodies (Ontario Soccer/Canada Soccer) Sessions are normally held at the Charmaine Hooper fields on Colonnade Road North. Some sessions may be held at an alternate field, if needed.
The U13-U16 teams will play in the ERSL Rec Leagues for U14 and U16 respectfully with away games played against opposing clubs within the City. For more information on how this team will operate please go here
