HISTORY

Simcoe and District Youth Soccer Club was formed in 1973 by a small group of enthusiastic soccer parents. There were 83 children registered in that first year! The Club grew slowly and steadily over the next 20 years to around 400 participants. In 1996 the organization was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. Then, with the growing popularity of soccer in North America, we began experiencing exponential growth in the next decade. By 2006, 1200 children, youth and adults were playing soccer with our Club. Today, we continue to see registrations of around 1,100 participants.

Many other developments have occurred since we welcomed in the new millenium. In 2000 we started an indoor soccer season at the Aud in Simcoe, which continues to draw over 225 participants a year. A number of competitive, representative teams were formed, starting in 2001. These teams have performed extremely well in leagues across Southern Ontario, often ending up in first place in their respective division. In 2007 the U16 team, coached by Zvonk Horvat advanced to the Ontario Cup game - a first for our Club! The rapid rise on player numbers and teams also forced the realization that the number of fields and their conditionn, were no longer adequate to support our Club. A small group of determined Board members, along with supporters from our Community embarked on an ambitious project to build a new soccer park just west of Simcoe.


Norfolk County Youth Soccer Park

The dream of a new soccer park came true in 2006 when the Simcoe and District Youth Soccer Club had its Grand Opening at the new Norfolk County Youth Soccer Park on July 23rd of that year. In a period of 4 years the Club raised $450,000 and created an important partnership with Norfolk County's Community Services Department and the Norfolk Pros Foundation. Literally dozens of service clubs and local businesses came to the club's aid and supported the community’s shared dream for a state-of-the-art soccer park to better provide Norfolk’s youth the opportunity to play soccer on high quality fields.

In 2008 the Club embarked in development of Phase II, which will include development of 3 new fields on the west side of the park, which will begin in September. These will consist of 2 regulation size fields and one “Atom” size field. As well new parking will be developed, and irrigation to water the new fields installed.

With the help of our many supporters and our dedicated Board of Directors and Club Manager, we continue to forge ahead in providing opportunities for youth in Simcoe, Waterford, Port Dover and surrounding areas, regardless of financial, physical or mental ability, gender, or cultural background, to play recreational soccer.
