    Markdale Minor Soccer / Welcome  / Welcome!

    Welcome!

    Markdale Minor Soccer completed its 2022 summer season in fine style! We were happy to finally be back to a full schedule this year after two years of cancellations and curtailed seasons. Our registrations grew as a result and we were pleased to welcome hundreds of new players to our club this year! The Under-6, Under-8 and Under-10 house league programs ran with our popular skills, drills and house-league game format that we offered to all kids in these age groups. The focus of these programs is teaching fundamental soccer skills such as passing, dribbling and shooting and then applying them practically during the house-league game that concludes each session. This is a great way for our young players to learn and have fun! These programs were offered once a week, with no travel at all outside of Markdale. For those players wanted a second night of soccer each week, we offered travel league teams for our Under-8 and Under-10 players, as part of the Inter-County Soccer League. Our travel teams represented Markdale proudly throughout the region, playing more competitive soccer while gaining new experiences and having a chance to match their skills against other clubs in our league.

    The Under-12, Under-15, Under-18 and Adult divisions played within the Lakeshore Soccer League. This allowed our athletes to compete on boys-only and girls-only teams against other clubs from all over Grey and Bruce counties. Markdale’s teams have a long tradition of success within the Lakeshore League.  This year was no different. Although we had an unusual drought in year-end championships, we did finish first in the regular season standings in three of the six age divisions and our U18 Girls, along with our U12 Boys brought home medals from the year-end tournaments.  Congratulations to all the teams that played fair and represented Markdale well throughout the 2022 season!

    Our Fall Soccer Program for Under-8 through Under-15 players returned after a two year’s absence and provided a great opportunity for our keenest players to continue playing soccer into the postseason and to keep developing their skills and staying fit. This year, we will also see the return of our popular winter indoor soccer which runs from December to March at the schools in Markdale and Flesherton.

    If you would like your child to participate in our soccer programs during the 2023 Season please look for updates here and on our Facebook page. You can also contact us at markdalesoccer@gmail.com or message us on Facebook.

    Whether you choose to play no-travel house league, travel house league or Lakeshore League, we will strive to make sure that your child has a fun, safe and memorable soccer experience at our club! See you on the fields!
