Select Outdoor

The Nitros Select Program is offered to players ages 9 to 12 looking to continue developing their soccer skills and techniques in a more structured environment. This program looks to provide an opportunity to bridge the gap between NT’s Recreational House League and Nitros Development Programs by offering 2 weekday practice sessions, occasional exhibition games and weekend festivals.

Our curriculum will follow a Game-Activity-Game (GAG) or a Station Model format depending on the age and group.

Registration is by invite only, for inquiries please contact Select Coordinator Yunes Shababi

Commitment Level

This program is designed for players with varying commitment levels and there are no consequences for absences due to vacations and other commitments. There will be no fee adjustments for any missed time and there will be no practices or festivals scheduled on long weekends or holidays.

We ask that players are able to commit to 4 out of 5 festivals so we can enter the correct number of teams for each festival.

How to join

Currently, priority is given to current indoor Select players and then previous Select players.

If there’s still room on the teams, interested new players will be able to try the program by attending a training session and have their skill level assessed. A member of our staff will determine suitability. The suitability of new players based on various factors, with skill level being one of the primary considerations. However, it’s important to note that coaches may also evaluate other attributes such as attitude, teamwork, physical fitness, tactical understanding, and potential for improvement when selecting new players for a select team. Ultimately, the goal is to create a well-rounded team that can perform effectively on the field.

We will not be holding tryouts or Open Development Sessions. Interested players are encourage to contact the coordinator: Yunes at yunes@northtorontosoccer.com.
