Dear Coaches, Managers, Players and Parents,
As an OPDL License holder, Ontario Soccer have encouraged bigger clubs to form affiliations with smaller clubs in their area to enable better pathways of development for the individual player. Although a very successful club, Glenshields Soccer Club have been tentatively affiliated with Vaughan Soccer Club for the last 12 months. However, the impact on player development and their experience, (particularly in their Grassroots Program 8-12 yrs. old), the board of directors from both clubs have decided to make the affiliation more official in the best interests of the player.
This affiliation will not affect the VSC membership at all. The idea is for the Glenshields Grassroots program to integrate with the VSC Grassroots program. The numbers making the journey across to VSC are limited but will enable us to broaden our base and give all players an opportunity to play at the right level for their ability, hence ensuring appropriate player development.
Furthermore, Glenshields will continue to run Competitive programs for boys and girls from age U13 upwards and Recreation programs for all age groups.
Therefore, Vaughan Soccer welcomes the players and parents from Glenshields and look forward to a positive partnership for both clubs.
