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. The walking shuttle is included at no additional fee.
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.

    No need! CTS After School Club offers a healthy snack after school including fruits or vegetables and a nutritional carb (crackers, arrowroot, popcorn, corn chips and much more).
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 from our members.
8. I have 2 children I’d like to register. Will they be in the same group?
    As of right now, all children play together as the program is small. So if you have a 7 and 9 year old, they will have the chance to play together!

Development and Instruction from our NCCP Trained Coaches: The After School Club provides all instuctors with coaching education through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The program has been identified as a world leader in coach education. CTS Instructors have been trained in a wide range of sport as our focus is to develop the interest of ASC members in multiple sports. Children are more likely to engage in sports if they understand the rules and fundamental skills behind the game. With coaches to correctly introduce the sport to ASC members, they are more likely to find out what they enjoy about a sport. As NCCP coaches, our instructors' roles are to encourage ASC members to continue their involvement in sports for a long time.

Sportsmanship: An important focus for the After School Club is to foster an environment of sportsmanship and for all members. The world of sport can be very competitive, but with competion, it becomes even more important to have good sportsmanship. All members are encouraged to respect others including other ASC members, instructors, community members and themselves. In order to encourage good sportsmanship, instructors are always rewarding good sportsmanship and continually demonstrating how to show good sportsmanship using the following skills: encouraging teammates, playing fair, giving everyone a chance to play, respecting the officials decisions and congratulating opponents on a good game - win or lose.

Individualized Approach for all Types of Children: At CTS After School Club, we believe every child should be given the opportunity to play sports and stay active. Sports can be an excellent environment for children who struggle in the classroom. We are now more aware of the struggles children experience in the classroom including anxiety, hyperactivity, learning disorders, boredom and other forms of disruptive behaviour. Sports programs have the ability to enable success in all children. CTS After School Club has low ratios to give children more individualized attention and more encouragement. We understand all children are unique and require different techniques to succeed. Our lead instructors come from a strong child sociology background and have experience working with all types of children.

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 Supervisor 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 Wilfrid 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

After School Club sound familiar? Central Tech Stadium's sister stadium also has an After School Club. Both programs are run by the same people with similar schedules. MPS After School Club started in 2014 with only 5 members. The program now boasts over 80 members a day from 7 different schools. See below how the program became so popular!

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.
