The Saltfleet Stoney Creek Soccer Club’s competitive program is aimed at players ages U13- U25 who have developed the
skills and commitment to play at a higher level.
Like all of our programs, the competitive rep teams training and development is structured around the Canadian Soccer
Association’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model. Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) is a player-centred
approach that provides guidelines for correct training, competition, and recovery based on scientific principles of human
development and athlete training, combined with the knowledge of qualified coaches.
The SSC will be represented by 20 Rep Competitive Teams for the 2017 Season:
- 6 Girls and 7 Boys teams playing in the Hamilton and District Multi-Jurisdictional Soccer League (MJ);
- 1 Girls and 1 Boys Regional teams playing in the Golden Horseshoe Regional Soccer League (GHSL);
- 2 Girls teams playing in the Ontario Youth Soccer League (OYSL);

The competitive rep team program is overseen by the Directors of Competitive Programs. Our teams are lead by qualified coaching staff (Head Coaches/Assistant Coaches) and a Team Manager runs administrative and financial aspects of the team.
The goal of development is to increase training loads and soccer specific skills and tactics and developing players for elite level of competition. Tactical awareness becomes an increasingly important facet of training, alongside mental toughness, concentration, and diligence. They must be exposed to quality playing and training environments which extend their mental, physical, tactical and technical capabilities
In order to train and play on SSC’s competitive teams, try-out sessions are held in the fall (September/October) and approximately 3-5 try-outs are held for each division/gender. Tryouts are run by the team's coaching staff where players are evaluated through a series of skills, drills and small-sided game play. Coaches aim to have their player commitments and team rosters finalized in October.
Coaches hold team meetings with parents/players to communicate the expectations of the coming season regarding team budget, fees, training and game schedules and any travel/tournaments etc that the team agrees will form the structure of their season.
