The fall soccer school runs between October and December on a weekly basis (later November programs go to Jan/Feb). Players participate in a training session each week with a focus on particular skill/s; the session includes conditioned (tactical) games as well as match play. Groups are formed based on age and ability level.*** FALL programs are currently at the Toronto City Sports Centre, Monarch Park and Central Tech Stadium. The programs at the Toronto City Sports Centre will remain outside for the time being weather permitting. Programs at Monarch Park & Central Tech Stadium are indoors on the turf. Sessions will run in the rain at Toronto City, please have your child dressed appropriate and accordingly for the weather the days of the sessions.*** At all facilities, there are limits to the number of people allowed on the surface and in the area for both the outdoor fields and indoor fields. Facility staff and/or Power Soccer staff will be managing these numbers.

COVID-19 Guidelines: Before Arrival
Parents at Sessions:
To keep numbers under the recommended limit as outlined by the Ontario Government, parents may not be permitted to stay and watch the program. This will depend on the number of registered players. If programs are near capacity, we will ask that parents leave after dropping players off and return at the end of the session.
Individuals must self-screen themselves to limit the introduction of infection:
o Prior to attending Sports Fields and Multi Use Fields, every participant must do the self-assessment for COVID-19 on the Ontario Ministry of Health website and if they do not pass the assessment they should not use the Sports Fields and Multi Use Fields until they pass the assessment and do not have signs and symptoms of COVID-19. All participants can visit the City's website to determine if further care is required and learn about assessment centres.
o All participants should be aware of signs and symptoms of COVID-19, including:
o Difficulty breathing
o Muscle aches
o Sore throat
o Runny nose
o New loss of taste or smell
The World Health Organization advises that symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 10 to 14 days after contracting COVID-19. Those who are infected with COVID-19 may have few or no symptoms. Hence, there is the possibility of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic spread of COVID-19.
