    The Our Kids review of Power Soccer School of Excellence

    our take

    With a 25-year history of teaching soccer, Power Soccer School of Excellence is one of Canada’s leading soccer schools. Its enthusiastic and skilled coaches make this school what it is—a place where kids learn soccer skills but also have tons of fun. At Power Soccer, kids as young as four aren’t just kicking a ball around. They learn how to control the ball, pass, position themselves, and score. The low player-to-coach ratio ensures all kids get an equal chance to play and learn, regardless of their skill level coming into the program. Kids here stay for the long term, with players and coaches developing deep interpersonal relationships that endure even once kids move on to university or college. Even though the games are competitive, everyone has a good time and is supportive of one another. The end-of-year “coaches vs. players match” is a favourite with everyone, and only serves to bolster the tight-knit atmosphere. Older players mentor younger ones, which helps develop leadership and coaching skills in the older kids. Kids at Power Soccer gain confidence, hone their skills, and grow in unexpected ways.

    Transcript of our interview with Nathaniel & Marina, Parents


    What's unique about the program at Power Soccer School that made you want to register your child there?

    Nathaniel: We first were introduced to Power Soccer by going to a facility in East York called MPS, which our son was initially registered in. And then we saw these kids doing some drills that look like advanced stuff, and I was like, I want my son to be a part of that program. So I went to their head office, and I said, “How do I get my son registered in Power Soccer School?” And they suggested we come out to a school, try it out, and see what happens. And then after they assessed him, they pretty much just scooped him up and brought him into the academy. So it all happened fairly quickly, but we felt that we wanted to give our son the best possible advantage when it comes to soccer. So we jumped around, and Power FC seemed to fit that bill.

    Marina: When we did speak to them, too, they had a style of the way they were running their academy that seemed that it wasn't parent-run because if we wanted something that was parent-run, we would have done it ourselves. But it was their style of coaching, their style of teaching that involved continual learning, as opposed to, Oh, your kid is fast, so we're going to make him a striker,. So it wasn't about that, it was about learning the game. 

    And because he was still young, it was also making sure that he enjoyed playing soccer and that they could nurture that sense of play while teaching. So it didn't seem like it was just, all, You’ve got to do this, you’ve got to do that as if it was military style. It was very much, We're going to teach your son to love soccer, we’re going to teach him how to play the game of soccer in all of its facets, as opposed to just you telling us that we want our son to be the best soccer player ever or we want him to play striker because he's quick.

    Was this your child's first experience with Power Soccer School?

    Nathaniel: As I said, we had him registered in something else, and he was doing a number of things. He was doing gymnastics, he was doing baseball, and what have you. But he really gravitated towards the soccer. Every possible  moment he was out in the field with the soccer ball, he was just doing it on his own. So for him to now have a more structured environment to learn was instrumental in his abilities and in improving.

    Was there any change or noticeable personal growth you saw in your child after his time at Power Soccer School?

    Marina: It's really interesting because I feel any parent could probably attest that boy-children are different than girl-children—not in terms of liking competition, because honestly, I 100% believe that girls are more competitive than boys, especially when it comes to sports. But I do feel that it helped him learn how to control his emotions from the perspective of all kids. They want to win. I'm faster, I'm better, I can kick harder. But it was also about, yes, you're going to lose, but it's not about just losing and walking off in a huff, which is what used to happen, but it's also, okay, How can we get better, not just as an individual but as a team? And then how can you improve and how can you manage that emotion of, well, you lost today, but guess what: You're going to play them next week. What are we going to do next week? And that's something that comes also with age. Sometimes, unfortunately, we as parents, we ascribe adult emotions to children, but he's still a child. He hasn't even developed.

    I mean, we're still trying to negotiate over doing homework. So I think one thing they did that I was very pleased to see: they assisted in that personal growth by helping him understand that, yes, winning is great, but it's not the only thing, and it's not the most important thing. And this I know for a fact is  going to be continual, not just a momentary thing. It's a path. Because I'll be honest: I hate losing, but I'm an adult, so I can see that. But yeah, definitely they have helped in that emotional growth and making that transition as he gets older, expressing those feelings, and helping to manage those feelings as well. 

    Sometimes it's tough, as a parent to have to figure out how to show that it's okay to lose even if in your head you're like I hate losing. And not because we don't want him to lose or not to win, but it's not the only thing that can happen. One thing we have noticed is that when he has lost, it's okay [and he is like] This is what I'll do different.

    So you see it. You see that whole mentality. Again, as an adult, it's like, I'm winning at all costs, but my costs are different than kids.

    If you hadn't sent your child to Power Soccer School, what's the most important facet of personal growth that they would've missed out on?

    Nathaniel: For him, my son: He could play soccer 24/7. So over the course of the camp, we tried to put him in something else, and that didn't go so well. He's established a community of sorts with these other camp participants. So l to this day, he's made friends where they call each other all the time, and they're going to be friends for life now, based on their experience within the camp. It's just unbelievable.

    Marina: If we didn't have him in Power Soccer, I think we would have had to find another way to expend all of his energies. Because he's an only child, so he doesn't have another child at home to play with. So it's nice that he does have that sense of community as well as a way to expend all that energy. 

    How can a parent support their child to get the most out of Power Soccer School?

    Marina: I think both of us will agree that you just let your kid be a kid. Let your child follow the program as it is provided. Meaning, as a parent, we always have an opinion about how things should go: Oh, my kid isn't playing enough. Oh, they're not winning enough. Oh, he should be playing more or less, or whatever. But one thing that Power Soccer has done when we first started, from just the fun part and it went to the academy, is they basically told us the plan. They said, “Look, parents, this is our style of coaching. These are the type of coaches we have. This is the emotional—the mental—support that we're trying to offer to all of our students.”

    And so I think any parent that wants their child to get the best out of it—and I'm not saying you can't disagree, you can't have opinions, speak to the coaches or speak to the directors—but understand that it's not just a regular style of soccer that they're trying to teach. They're trying to teach these kids how to play and understand the game, and play at their best level. Even if they're not going to be playing professionally, that's fine. But they want to pull the best out of your child, so you have to allow them to do so. 

    So whether your child is the best and is going to play up a level, or maybe your girl child is going to play with the boys squad one day because she's really good, let them do that. And if you have any feelings about it—negative, positive—as a parent, you speak to the director, you speak to the coaches. But let your child know that what the coach says is what they’re doing, not what your child thinks. Because again, as parents, we're biased. They’re our kids, and our kids are always great.

    But just because we think our son is great, that doesn't mean that his development is going to go the way we think it's going to go, because they're the ones that are coaching him. Parents have to decide if Power Soccer is the right fit for their kids. But if it is, then you respect it and teach your child to respect what they're learning and how they're going to grow and how to be the best player, but also be the best athlete and the best person. Because they're also learning how to speak to coaches and learning how to speak to referees and vice versa. 

    Nathaniel: So one of the things that I do is I make sure that my son has enough snacks because that’s important. They need their energy, they need their drinks. You want to give a variety of things so that they are well-equipped for the day. I drop off my son and I kiss him on the head and then I leave. At that point, it becomes the responsibility of the coaches and whatnot, and I want my son to know that he's no longer in my charge once I drop [him off].

    And then I show up at the end of the day. I usually come in a little bit earlier just to see a little bit of his game. I just take a mental note of how many goals he's scoring and whatnot and what problems might arise in those 15 minutes. And then we can talk about it on the way home or not talk about it because he waits to speak to his mom.

    Marina: There's a certain independence that you have as an athlete, especially when you're a child, because you learn how to play with others, but then you also figure out whether you’re good in team settings or not. And then you can kind of, either work around it or work through it.  But you learn that, again, they're little humans that think differently. So we can't impose our wishes on them. 

    So if I was a soccer player back in the day, and I was a failed soccer player, I shouldn't impose that on my child. And, okay, well, you're going to be better than me because guess what: He's his own person? And it's funny, because even from a camp perspective, I think these are things that when your hubby said let your child go, and they become the responsibility of the academy, you're teaching your child that you find your path, you find your way, and I will be here to support you.

    It may not be your path, but at least we tried it. And then, if it's not your path, we'll go somewhere different.  But I will say for us personally, that our experience with Power FC and their camp and the academy too, is that it's been a positive experience for us and for our job as parents, because we're trying to follow the advice we're given.

    What does your child say about Power Soccer School, either to you or that you may have heard them say to friends or others?

    Nathaniel: My son does Google searches to see what the rating is on particular clubs and camps, and he wants to make sure that his is among the top. He's a huge fan of his club, and he's not leaving any time soon. He loves Power FC.

    Marina: Yes, he has pride in it. So JC is a very competitive person, and he already has in his head the rivalries with other clubs. So, yeah, he believes he's in the right club to deal with all these rivalries. And  he believes Power of Soccer is superior to every thing else, and he has got enemies that he plans to conquer in the next set of tournaments. 

    But he does have the frustrations of, Oh, I don't get this, or they don't say this, and that's to me, normal child stuff. But his experience has been positive and because he speaks highly of it, he's there and we keep him there. If at any point we felt as parents that the experience was negative or what we were seeing wasn't growth, we were just seeing like, this doesn't feel right, then we would have taken him out. But it does feel good to us. And we've been very fortunate that anything that we've had to say to Power Soccer, whether it be about the camp or anything, has been well received by the director and by the coaches.

    Final thoughts?

    Marina: If you want your child to have a good experience, even if it's really, truly just for a week, Power Soccer is great. I'll tell you, they know how to put the right combination of kids together. And it's not just all the boys together or all the girls together—t's mixed. Right. But even if your child is at the basic level and they have two left feet, it's okay because they make them feel part of it. 

    I would say to parents, it's tough being a parent in Toronto, but if you want good bang for your buck, this is it. If you want people that actually care about your kids, this is it. 

    And they actually know all of the kids. So it's fascinating to watch. And I think that's something that's very important as a parent, to know that your child isn't just okay that came week one. Tell other parents that we're here if you want to come back again, or if you are like JC who was there pretty much the entire summer, you’ll get to know all the coaches and all the coaches will get to know you. And as a parent, it was nice knowing that they knew who my child was. I felt confident that they were actually looking out for him and he was learning and it was money well spent.

    Nathaniel: The thing that's really nice is a lot of the coaches were former campers. So they come back and train and they know the whole system.

    Marina: So all of that together is something that makes it a good bet for parents. That it's not just some random coaches coming from off the street or from different leagues—that they've been through the program themselves. They are soccer players themselves. Power Soccer highly values both its women and male coaches, which is very important, and  the kids get to see this as well.

    I will recommend it to everyone

    First of all, thank you so much for providing my sons (and so many other children) with such a wonderful way to participate in a healthy, confidence building activity while at the same time keeping it fun for everyone. Your coaches are unbelievable - my kids loved theirs and I was extremely impressed with them and with the professionalism of the (summer) camp. I will recommend it to everyone. I was originally apprehensive about a full day of soccer for my two sons, who had no previous soccer experience, but they had the time of their lives. Now they are both eager to return in August ...

    Mission Statement

    Our mission is to deliver top level soccer training and instruction with the objective of guiding players to attain their maximum potential in the game of soccer. We place an emphasis on skill and tactical development and the maximization of game enjoyment through a training process that emphasizes fair play, respect and enjoyment of the game. We believe in nurturing and developing the mental, physical and technical characteristics of the youth player. Our programs are presented through a dynamic and creative soccer training model. We encourage players to use their imagination and creativity while playing. Power Soccer coaches conduct an innovative skills program which provides an opportunity for total involvement for each player. At Power Soccer we focus on allowing players to express their individuality while giving them concise feedback on how they can improve their game play. Players will encounter an age and skill specific program that will foster development and result in greater enjoyment in soccer. We believe that players who are enjoying soccer and who are comfortable to make mistakes without criticism will develop best. Proper player development is a long term project which produces incredible results. At Power Soccer, players receive informative and positive feedback through detailed Players Profile reports and constant communication with individual coaches.

    Smart Soccer

    Integral to our teaching process is the coach's ability to capture players playing smart soccer. We give players the confidence to find their own solutions while playing the game. We stress "possession soccer" and we encourage players to think about what they do with and without the ball. Coaches give players options and instruct them in priorities of play so that they gain an understanding of the fundamental principals of the game.

    'All Ball'

    At Power Soccer, all training is done with the ball. We recognize that continuous contact with the ball leads to a remarkable improvement in each player's ability level. The "all ball" aproach at Power Soccer fosters skill improvement and builds player confidence. Constant training with the ball is accepted as a sound coaching principal in advanced soccer nations. Canadian players need maximum exposure to the ball; this will sharpen each player's skill level. At Power Soccer training sessions, players learn to use creative fakes and turns,  shielding skills, ball tricks and moves in order to deal with pressure in the game.

    Game Sense

    Training sessions are designed to promote quick decision making, speed of reaction and the sharpening of the players' game sense. We endavour to create good soccer playing habits from an early age and our training combines skill exercises with lots of game play to facilitate player enjoyment.

    Coaching Methodology

    • Enthusiastic, well organized and qualified coach
    • Well planned session that has a skill/tactical focus
    • Use of the ball throughout the session
    • Coach allows players to solve problems
    • Keep it simple, do not over coach
    • Fitness is achieved through the ball skills
    • Creative sessions that challenge players to reach their potential
    • Respect the player, parent, coach, official – Fair Play
    • Positive feedback from the coach creates a learning environment and enjoyment of the game.

    • Power Soccer is the best!

      Power Soccer is by far the best sport , camp or activity my son has ever taken part in. 

      Excellent, mature, experienced coaches who really know how to motivate kids and actually teach them how to improve their skills

    • We came from Abroad

      My son participated in the second week of camp U10. As a Canadian living in a foreign country, we were worried for many reasons: the lack of language (we don't speak English to him at home), the different mentality, the level of soccer (higher or less than what he is used to..), and all the other regular stuff parents worry when they send their offspring off to camp…
      We were thrilled by the way he was accepted by the coaches and the other children, communication was really OK- using English, hand gestures, and international soccer words (his English improved immensely!!), and the soccer level was impressive. The coaches were well trained, have diplomas in an array of sport related subjects (especially soccer, but happily not only soccer), they were understanding and had a great positive attitude towards the children and the parents. The wonderful report we received at the end of the camp, reflected exactly that: positive feedback, and pointers for personal improvement.
      We are totally impressed and of course feel that our money was well spent: the risk was higher than the average Canadian, since we come from abroad, and it could easily be the wrong choice.
      Adam can't stop talking about the camp, and was sad he couldn't continue for another week (at least…).
      I'm happy to say, that we decided that we will make every effort to return again next year. The experience was so great, we want to have it again!
      Special thanks to his coaches: Ian and Joe. They are the main reason this experience was so meaningful.

      Thank you from the bottom of our heart. This camp was defiantly the highlight of our summer!
