The summer 2023 season is almost upon us! The Under-4, Under-6, Under-8 and Under-10 house league programs will run with our popular skills, drills and house-league game format that we offer 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 are offered once a week, with no travel at all outside of Markdale. For those players who want a second night of soccer each week, we offer travel league teams for our Under-8 and Under-10 players, as part of the Inter-County Soccer League. Our travel teams represent 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. Look for all these programs to start toward the end of May and early June.
The Under-12, Under-15, Under-18 and Adult divisions play within the Lakeshore Soccer League. This allows 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. This past year was no different with three of our six teams finishing first in the regular season standings and our U18 Girls, along with our U12 Boys, bringing home medals from the year-end tournaments. Congratulations to all the teams that played fair and represented Markdale well throughout the 2022 season! Looking forward to a fantastic 2023! Teams are out practising already and the first games start in the last week of May.
As in previous years, we will also be offering Fall Soccer for our Under-8 through Under-15 players in the months of September and October. Towards the end of 2023, we will run our winter indoor soccer in December and continuing through the winter months at both the Markdale and Flesherton locations.
If you would like your child to participate in our soccer programs during the 2023 Season please fill out the registration form available on this website and look for updates on the upcoming season on our Facebook page and here. For any questions, you can contact us at email@example.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!
Finally, thank you to our past president, Mils Farmus, for a successful eight years of leadership. I look forward to leading Markdale Soccer into the 2023 season and beyond. See you on the fields!
President, Markdale Minor Soccer
