U14 & High Schooler Soccer

Soccer for Life

What is it?

"...is for the player who enjoys the game, wants to stay fit and play soccer with their friends, but does not want to commit to increased training or travel. Players in this pathway are likely to train once per week and play once per week or only play matches. Soccer in this pathway will most likely occur within a club (i.e., house league) or at a local level between neighbouring clubs or communities, which would mean more travel than traditional house league. It could also occur as part of a District League, which would mean more travel again but still considered recreational. A player at this level could also move between this level and the Competitive for Life pathway, depending on his/her development and advancement as a player."  Ontario Soccer

At NorWest, we offer both male and female Soccer for Life leagues. They are run for both the fitness & social benefits of our local teens. We stress fun and good sportsmanship at this level. All matches are officiated by CSA Match Officials, and games follow Ontario Soccer's Small-sided Game rules. 

In the spirit of promoting Sport for Life, this league is focused on building social connection for lasting participation in sport. In short, fun over fame. 

Competitive participants (players, coaches, & spectators) should consider other options. Aggressive play, language, & coaching directed at any player, team official, referee, or spectator will not be tolerated. As per our code of conduct, refunds will not be provided for dismissal due to unsporting conduct - including cheating, whining, & temper tantrums...

We have seen it all in teen soccer & aim to protect the dignity of the league for players with respect for it.

Under 14 House League

Should registration be too low to sustain at least a 7v7 house league of 4 teams, we will offer players a full refund, or they can choose to participate in one night of practice & one scrimmage night per week. This has applied to our U14 girl's program for the last two seasons. It is a little less conventional than a traditional league but still offers players physical & social activity weekly - and they seem to love it.

Parents: Ideally, it will keep them playing until they can participate in our High Schooler league (below), which is always a great success! Too often, young teens leave a sport at 13-14 and feel like they "don't play soccer anymore", so lack the confidence to return to it in high school.

Our goal for our U14 program is to keep them moving for these rocky couple of years in hopes they can continue into our popular High Schooler program (outlined far below) and on into Sport for Life!
