COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate 


Note that due to the current York Region Public Health directive relating to Covid-19 vaccinations, any persons wishing to enter an indoor recreational facility in the City of Markham after October 31, 2021 MUST provide proof of full vaccination (two approved doses) unless medically exempted (physician note or 11 years of age or younger).                                                 


Jr. Academy Soccer Sessions are divided into 3 parts:

  • Physical Literacy; repetition of movement to develop balance and motor skills
  • Introduction to soccer; establish a relationship between the ball and player
  • Players learn basic rules of soccer through fun games
  • Each program aims to teach players the fundamental basics of soccer, with a focus on proper technique and tons of touches from the very beginning.
  • Players are put into low numbered teams so they get a ton of attention and lots of time with the ball.
  • Jr Academy has a Licensed Head Coach plus trained technical staff who support the Jr. Academy during their practices and small sided games. They also have volunteer parent coaches.
  • UMSC follows the Ontario Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development. There are no scores or standings, just a very positive environment that will encourage your child to fall in love with the game and will keep them active & healthy for their entire lives!
