Soccer for Life

​Tiny's Soccer for Life Program is an initiative funded by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The MTCS recognizes that providing Ontarians with opportunities to engage in community sport, recreation and physical activity is critical to improving quality of life. Through this program we are supporting increased opportunities for participation in physical activity, building physical literacy as the foundation for lifelong activity, and strengthening the capacity of the sport and recreation sector.

This initiative will support the development of soccer in Tiny and North Simcoe by providing free NCCP Coach Certification Sessions, an Entry Level Referee course, Skills & Drills lessons in local schools, and the development of a Soccer in a Bag Loaner Program. The Township of Tiny has also partnered with Huronia Soccer to offer a Youth Soccer League in North Simcoe. Click on the tabs below to learn more about these programs.
