House League Registration is Open on Jan 1st 2024

Description of Program -

The Byron Optimist Soccer Club Recreational Program serves as a great introduction to soccer for new players or for players to continue their journey within the sport.

Our Recreational Program provides an exciting and fun experience in a low-pressure environment for kids so they can learn the game and develop a passion for soccer and athletics for many years to come.  We strongly believe that youth sports play an important role in a child’s life. Children who participate in youth sports develop both physical and social skills, including self-confidence, discipline, focus, friendship, and motivation – lessons essential in the life of a student athlete. Regular physical activity during practices and games also carries a range of health benefits for young players.

We align our Recreational program with Ontario Soccer’s Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) program. LTPD is about putting the player first and offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer.

Due to current health regulations if for some reason we are not able to run the program this summer due to COVID we will be offering full refunds.  Otherwise our regular refund policy will apply - click here to view details.

U8-U17 players will be entered in the Elgin Middlesex Tier 3 league.  This is a house league level program that allows players from different clubs to practice and play in a fun, low pressure environment.  Training will be in Byron at either the Byron Optimist Sports Complex or Springbank Park.  Games will be at either Byron, Springbank or local area fields in the greater London area.  

Volunteer coaches receive training, pre planned practice sessions and one full rebate on their player's registration fee for the team they coach.
