U4 & U5 Parent & Tot house league
The youngest soccer divisions are co-ed Timbits. These division is designed to be an early introduction to the soccer field and ball. The series of activities are designed to keep them moving and developing ball skills, teamwork, and a love of sport.

Players meet once per week at the Fields of Uxbridge for an evening that includes lots of fun and drills/games followed by a short 3v3 scrimmage on a partial field. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the skills activities with their child and play with them.

If desired, players will be able to register for both the Tuesday and Thursday night program.

U6 House league
This is a co-ed league on a small field. Teams will start the evening with a volunteer coached practice session and end with an organized refereed game.  Evenings are designed to increase agility, balance, coordination, and speed, but first and foremost - be fun.

Games will be played in a 3v3 format with no goal keeper. The non-competitive format encourages children to take risks, learn to work as a team, and develop great sportsmanship.

U6 Super Skills Add On
For those looking to sharpen their skills and technique, players can register for a night of professionally coached practice in addition to their house league registration. This will be an 8 week program.

60  minutes of structured and fun coaching & skill development will concentrate on development of the ABC’s of Agility, Balance and Coordination plus speed. Players will also learn to read the movements going on around them and develop the ability to read what others are going to do based on those movements. Players make decisions, working out problems and coming up with solutions

U8 House league
At this age teams are divided by gender, and age groups are combined to include players turning 7 and turning 8 in the calendar year.

Teams will start the evening with a volunteer coached practice session and end with an organized refereed game.

Practice sessions continue to focus on agility, balance, coordination, speed, and FUN.  5v5 games encourage youth to be aware of and understand the positions of other players on the field. Goal keepers are introduced, adding new challenges for developing minds. No scores or standings are kept so that kids can play without unnecessary pressure to “win”.

U10 includes players turning 9 and turning 10 in the calendar year.

Teams will start the evening with a volunteer coached practice session and end with an organized refereed game.

Youth will play 7v7 on a mini field with a referee and goal keepers. Repetition of basic skills remains essential to developing technical excellence. Coaches are also able to develop knowledge of soccer plays and rules, and to encourage sportsmanship. All players should play an even amount of time in each position to help them develop a strong sense of the game. No scores or standings are kept. The focus is on fun & smart play rather than beating the opponent.

U10 Super Skills Add On

Players make decisions, working out problems and coming up with solutions.

U12 North Durham Soccer Interlock
Starting at age 11, our House League joins with the Scugog Soccer Association's House League in order to maintain good division size. This cooperative effort is called the North Durham Soccer Interlock. 

Sessions are scheduled in Uxbridge AND Port Perry. Practices and games are held on 2 separate nights each week. We work to schedule all teams from a division at the same facility on a given night as much as possible so that it is easier to carpool with friends regardless of team placement.

On game night, youth will play 9v9 on a mid-size field with referees and goal keepers. All youth play an even amount of time in each position to help them develop a strong sense of the game. Equal playing time is expected for all players. No scores or standings are kept. The focus is on fun & smart play rather than beating the opponent.

U15 & U18 North Durham Soccer Interlock
These divisions are a part or the North Durham Soccer Interlock. Games are played either in Uxbridge or Port Perry and teams continue to have one game and one practice per week.  In a given week, we try to schedule all games from a single division at the same facility so that it is easier to carpool with friends regardless of team placement.

While we like to maintain single gender divisions for these age groups, programs are dependent upon adequate enrollment. If enrollment is not sufficient for single gender, these age divisions will be Co-ed.

The club is also in talks with a number of other Durham clubs to see if we can put together some recreational soccer tournament days with teams from other areas.

These divisions play full field 11v11 soccer and closely follow FIFA rules. Sessions are an opportunity to spend time with friends and enjoy the sport. The focus is on fun, fair play, sportsmanship and further skill development. We strive to develop the idea of having fun playing soccer for life!

Competitive Soccer Programs
The Uxbridge Soccer Club does not offer a competitive soccer (rep) program. However, the Uxbridge Soccer Club is officially affiliated with the North Durham United Football Club (NDUFC) as a Player Development Club through our House League programs. NDUFC is the competitive soccer club for North Durham - Uxbridge, Scugog and Brock townships. This is operated as a separate soccer club with participation in different leagues. For more information regarding competitive soccer options, visit the NDUFC website at www.northdurhamunited.com

Ontario Soccer Association's Long Term Player Development Paths
Long term player development (LTPD) is intended to “make the game more fun than ever before for the recreational player and to provide better development opportunities than ever before for those with aspirations for a future in the sport.” LTPD has been mandated by the Ontario Soccer Association, and the Uxbridge Soccer Club is striving to provide a great program while still aligning with LTPD standards.
