June 2023: Canada Soccer Youth Club Licensing Program

Youth Club Licensing Program

Canada Soccer has announced June 2023 updates as 40 clubs have been accredited as part of its National Youth Club Licensing Program. 

“We are very pleased to announce another group of clubs who have met the Standards for Quality Soccer as well as those who have achieved a higher category of recognition. These organizations are making a commitment to providing safe, fun, accessible and inclusive, and developmentally appropriate programming, which are the principles that underpin the Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licensing Program,” said Dave Nutt, Canada Soccer’s Director of Development. “Canada Soccer would like to thank our Member Associations for their support in implementing the Club Licensing Program as well as the clubs for their hard work in raising the standards of soccer in Canada.”

Starting in 2023, the Quality Soccer Provider designation is a requirement of membership to ensure that all member organization clubs meet the standards required to fulfill the requirements of Canada Soccer’s Safe Sport Roster which was unanimously adopted at the 2019 Canada Soccer Annual Meeting of the Members.
