1. What schools are eligible for the walking shuttle to CTS?
    You tell us! Eligible schools are generally those within a 1.5 kilometre radius of the stadium or within a 15-20 minute walk from school to CTS. If we receive a high level of interest from one particular school, we'll make a strong effort to arrange an after school club walking shuttle.
2. How old are the participants / what grades are accepted?
    Participants are between the ages 6 and 12 years old or in grades 1-6.
3. What kinds of activities are offered?
    Participants will have the chance to try their hand at everything from soccer to dance to archery tag in a high-energy multi-sport focused program. With a variety of other activities to keep participants physically active and engaged in healthy habits, CTS after-school club offers something for everyone.
4. What is the schedule?
    School bell-4:15 — walking shuttle from school doors to CTS, snack and welcome activities 4:15-5:15— physical activities led by instructors 5:15-5:45 — participant led activities (free-play) 5:45-6:00 — clubhouse cool down activities and parent pick-up
5. Can I pick up before 6:00pm?
    Yes! Parents are welcome to pick up at times that are most convenient for their families. Exceptions may apply for days when after-school club leaves the stadium for excursions in the community.
6. Should I pack a snack for after school or is there a snack provided?
    A healthy snack is encouraged, but at this time CTS does not provide any food during the After School Club. We hope to implement a nutrition program in the second year.
7. My child doesn’t enjoy organized sports, is this program still appropriate for him/her?
    CTS After School Club has a mandate to show kids their own unique love of physical activity. Although the program does involve sports, we also play many activities that encourage movement and active play. We are also always interested in hearing suggestions and new ideas for activities.
8. I have 2 children I’d like to register. Will they be in the same group?
    Groups will be determined by the total number of participants registered in the program. The higher the number of participants, the more likely children will be grouped in narrower age groups. Make sure to check back in with ASC coordinator closer to the beginning of the school year for more information.

Meet Alicia: As Program Manager, Alicia brings a backround of sports, recreation and program development. In 2014, Alicia founded CTS sister stadium, Monarch Park Stadium's After School Club, Camps and Little LEAGUERS programs which serve over 5000 families in the East York area. She has been developing and working in youth programs for over 18 years starting as a youth sports coach in high school and working with Camp U of T as a college athlete. After graduating from the University of Toronto, she finished her Masters' at California State University Long Beach studying Sports Management. While in California, she worked with LA Galaxy Community Development to provide programs for under served youth in the LA Community. Her favourite sport is soccer and in her spare time she coaches girls' soccer teams.

"Although I grew up with a high performance sports background, I have come to see the importance of recreation. It is so important for kids to just play. If you can't have fun as a kid, when can you?"

Meet Zoey: Zoey began as a Camp Counsellor in 2014 with Monarch Park Stadium. She is now the CTS Program Coordinator administering and leading all youth programs. She began her involvement in sports at a young age captaining her boys hockey team until she was 15. Besides her many babysitting roles in high school, Zoey was enrolled in Leadership Camps where she learned the importance of organization and planning. She worked as a Don throughout university planning sports and other activities for her peers. Her role as a camp counsellor and leader at MPS helped to grow the program from 30 kids per week to 100 kids per week in just 2 years. After graduating from Wilfred Laurier University, Zoey has joined Central Tech Stadium to bring her youth program experience to the new facility. Her favourite sport is hockey and in her spare time she enjoys personal training.

"After graduating university, I was excited to join the team permanently. The idea of playing sports and mentoring youth as a full time job was exciting. I've always found working with kids to be a rewarding experience."

Testimonials

Monarch Park Stadium Families

A Family Requiring Convenience: I've had both my children enrolled in MPS since they were 4 and 6. My husband and I have always felt confident in the program and staff. The kids play sports  and activities every day. We come from a soccer background, but the children have both really enjoyed learning new sports. In fact, my son is now really interested in basketball from his time at MPS. My daughter's love for sport has completely flourished. She's now not afraid to challenge any boys and she loves to get involved no matter the game. The program has also been extremely convenient for us. Before ASC, we used a lot of babysitters, so the kids were use to the comfort of their home. This program honestly provides the same thing because the staff do wonders to make sure we have everything we need at our finger tips. Forgot to register your kids for camp, they're there for you! Need to pick up early and have the kids waiting in their snow gear, they've got it under control! Bottom line, the program has done wonders for our family and we're appreciative.

Father of 2 extremely active boys: My boys have always gone to daycare, but as they have gotten older and (as they'd describe it) "more mature", they asked us for a change so we tried this out. It's been great! The kids play all the sports they like and even learn new sports. We have two really active boys, so we need them to run their energy off before coming home.

2 Families Becoming 1: Let me tell it straight, we've got one kid in the program, but 5 other kids between the two families. Between my husband, my ex-husband and his wife, we've got a lot going on. We had to put our boy into the program because he aged out of his daycare. We would have rather stayed to keep everyone in the same place, but we didn't have a choice. What a great place to be forced into! Our boy loves it here. He gets to be himself and he doesn't even like sports. He likes the way counsellors encourage him to give everything a try and eventually has picked up a number of activities he really enjoys. He always completes his homework during the designated time and he's really proud of the 5+ Stars of the Week he's earned. I think this was a great place for him to land. The counsellors are great and the environment really provides a great opportunity for all kids to develop a love for sport.
