Grassroots Recreational Program (GRP) – Indoor (Fall/Winter/Spring)
The training curriculum for the Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer Club GRP program is aligned with the OSA goals of Grassroots Soccer and the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model following the Four Corner Development Model. 

The Grassroots philosophy is based on providing the appropriate soccer skills and development training that aligns with a players cognitive and physical stages of development. Watch the OSA LTPD Grassroots Video >

The Long Term Player Development philosophy is based on a four corner development model. Traditionally, soccer clubs/coaches have focused on the Technical & Physical areas of the sport. We are now moving to a more holistic approach that includes the Social/Emotional and Psychological aspects of development.

The objective of the GRP program is to provide the fundamental, age appropriate skills and knowledge about the game of soccer that gives players a pathway to continually increase their skills and allow them to advance to higher levels such as our Talented Pathway Program (TPP) or Rep Competitive Teams.

Player identification is an ongoing process at SSC. Players who show signs of potential skills to play at these higher levels may be invited to join these programs (Invitations would come from our Technical Director or Club Head Coach).
