Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club Update | September 2019 Edition

News Release – September 2019 Edition

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to our 2019 Outdoor survey.  We received over 115 responses and with the information provided, we will be able to make improvements to how we operate our club in the future.  The detailed feedback will allow us to enhance and improve programs both regular and new and raise the bar of customer service and communications.

New Initiative!!

The Club will be creating and establishing a competitive player competition model as we move through the 2019 Indoor / Futsal program to the 2020 Outdoor competition.

This will result in the establishment of a U11, U12 and U13 competitive stream for both boys and girls to play and compete in the North York District Soccer League in the summer of 2020.

This competitive steam will compliment out current house league programs and will provide a more competitive environment for athletes wanting to compete at a higher level of competition.  Our recent survey indicates that this change is a needed and welcome change to competition requirements at the Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club.

To build and execute this change will require a significant amount of resources.

Effective immediately we are beginning a search for qualified coaches to lead this initiative at both the House League and competitive level.  A coaching application recruitment program will take place between now and September 23, 2019, and will continue throughout the next 10 months as we search out coaches who can lead these programs.  If interested, please take the time to complete the application and share with any interested parties who may want to be part of our program in the fall/winter of 2019-2020 and the summer of 2020.  

The application is posted on the website, click here to apply.  Any questions or queries, please email ronsmale@outlook.com or call 289-314-5588.
