The Jr TITANS Academy runs clinics, 4 times a year, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall to ensure players can stay on top of their game all year long!!

There are a total of 8 sessions altogether and are about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs. long.  In these sessions, players work on developing their soccer skills by doing various drills, 1 v 1, 3 v 3, and small-sided games with some additional fun soccer games mixed in for a bonus!  Winter's sessions also have a Futsal focus which, with a slightly smaller and heavier ball, helps players by encouraging closer and better ball control and manipulation in tight spaces.

Winter is run in an Indoor location (usually a school gym) with the others being run outdoors on the Turf field located at our Home in E.E. Mitchelson Park.

Spots are limited to ensure a good Coach to Player ratio and a quality program.

A JTA T-Shirt is included in all registrations for players to wear to the clinic. Shin pads and proper footwear is a must!

Please see below for the most current Clinic being run and for the dates of the upcoming Clinics for the rest of 2022!

Extreme Heat Protocol

By Christina Stranges 07/05/2019, 2:15pm EDT

NFSC Extreme Heat Protocol

 Soccer in Extreme Heat
Here at the Niagara Falls Soccer Club, our players are very important to us and we would not want to see any harm come to them, however, we have to be very cautious regarding how many times we cancel due to various weather circumstances. 

We try not to cancel soccer games due to extreme heat, but instead, we allow parents to make individual decisions on player participation.  Players will not be penalized for choosing not to play in such conditions.   The following recommendations are some key guidelines for soccer participation in the heat:

1.  Avoid dehydration and make sure to pre-hydrate

  • 3 hours prior to the game, drink at least 16 oz or 500 ml of water as a series of sips over the next 60 minute period
  • 2 hours prior to the game, drink at least 8 oz or 250 ml of water as a series of sips over the next 60 minutes
  • During the game drink at least 4- 8 oz of water for every 20 minutes of play

2.  Water Breaks

Referees have been advised that frequent water breaks MUST be provided, especially at the mid-point of each half of play, and that the half-time (water break) and they should be a reasonable amount of time to allow for maximum water intake. They have also been advised that the water breaks are mandatory and cannot be removed by coach request.

In extreme heat, in addition to our water refill station, NFSC will add additional water stations around our fields to provide extra hydration for all our players and members.

3.  Heat Injury Indicators

How can you tell if one of your soccer players/child is experiencing heat injury? Below is a list of the early warning signs to look for and again this is not an exhaustive list:

  • Flushed face
  • Hyperventilation or shortness of breath
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Tingling Arms
  • Goose Bumps
  • Chilliness
  • Poor coordination
  • Confusion, agitation or uncooperativeness

Finally, while players (other than the goalie) are not permitted to wear hats during the actual game, players who are sitting off should be actively encouraged to wear a hat or seek shade.

We hope this helps answer any questions and we hope with some care, everyone enjoys their soccer season!
