At Clairlea-Westview, we are committed first and foremost to providing a quality house league for the boys
and girls in our local neighbourhoods, and to doing so at affordable rates.
Providing a quality house league means a few things:
- Team coaches are offered coaching clinics and encouraged to become certified through the Ontario
Soccer Association (OSA).
- Every referee has been trained in a sanctioned programme and received OSA certification. As our
players get older, we encourage them to become referees and where possible, pay them to referee younger age groups.
- Game fields are of the highest quality available to us, and properly lined.
We also offer competitive programmes, and we do so for one main reason: we believe that to best serve
the children of the community, we should provide a home for the most talented players who will beneft from a calibre of play
and additional instruction that exceeds the level of the house league. The house league is not regarded as the feeder system
for the rep teams; rather, the rep teams are places into which some house league players will grow.
- Every player is provided with a jersey in the team colours, shorts and socks.
- Other than at the youngest age groups (where every participant receives a trophy), standings are
maintained and trophies awarded to the league winners. After our cup tournaments in September, cup winners and cup
finalists are awarded trophies.
- Sportsmanship is promoted throughout the season, and at the end of the year a player from each team
is awarded the Sportsperson of the Year trophy.
At Clairlea-Westview, our objective is to provide a complete range of soccer services to the children we serve. We don't
believe soccer starts in the spring and ends in the fall. We also provide an indoor house league at Variety Village, open
clinics on Friday nights throughout the off-season months, and we enter a few selected teams into rep-level indoor leagues.
The aims of the club are:
- To foster a spirit of sportsmanship and fair play in the young people of the community, through
participation in the sport of soccer.
- To stress that the desire to win should not overrule the objective of moulding the image of the young
people in the concepts of teamwork and comradeship.
- To promote and develop the game of soccer at the lowest cost to parents, players and the
There's a growing trend at the Clairlea-Westview Soccer Club that demonstrates the strength of our
approach and the health of the club: every year, more and more of our coaches and referees are former (or current!) club
