Let the Kids Play
The LKP program is a youth recreational program which provides a practice and/or a play session each week. Sessions are delivered by coaches under the guidance of our National “A” Club Head Coach with age appropriate training. Parents interested in coaching are required to complete the appropriate coaching courses and volunteer screening process. No standings or scores are kept as a part of the Hotspurs Long Term Player Development philosophy.
The program starts at the beginning of June and ends mid August with a soccer festival on the Saturday of the final weekend.
The sessions are normally held at the Charmaine Hooper fields on Colonnade Rd North. Some sessions may be held at an alternate field such as Sir Guy Carleton field on Centrepointe Drive as needed.

The U4 Group has one 45 minute session per week. All other groups have the choice of 60 minute sessions either 1 or 2 sessions per week.
All participants receive a uniform (jersey, shorts and socks) and at the end of the season they are presented with a participation medal.
For ages U13-U18
Nepean Hotspurs recreational players are registered to play in the Recreational League, an Ottawa soccer league which includes Ottawa clubs such as the Ottawa Internationals, the Ottawa City Soccer Club and Gloucester.
The Recreational League is a recreational league not a competitive league. No standings are kept as a part of the philosophy of the “Just for fun and exercise” approach to the game. It is not “All about winning.”
The season operates from May through to the end of August and concludes with a soccer festival weekend.
Hotspurs Recreational teams normally have one game and one practice a week.
Game nights are determined by the Recreational League and practices are typically the opposite evening, i.e.; if game Wednesday, practice is generally Monday.
The rules and regulations, of the league, are primarily FIFA based, with some additional recreational substitution flexibility in order to offer, as much as possible, equal playing time to all participants. Games are played on a full field, 11v11. Hotspurs teams’ play against other Club teams that applied to participate in the league, as noted above, and on occasion will play versus other Hotspurs teams where more than one Hotspurs team is registered to play in the same age group division.
Recreational soccer provides the opportunity for equal playing time and to play and learn the game in a supportive TEAM environment. Coaches will work to help players achieve individual skill improvements with the ball as well as encourage players to learn a basic life skill in working and supporting each other in a team environment.
