Waterloo United is pleased to be one of 39 clubs in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario to have been granted the first ever Canada Soccer National Youth Club Licence.

As the highest amateur youth club designation in Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program, the National Youth Club Licence recognizes the highest achieving organizations from across Canada.

The Program is a key component to Canada Soccer's Safe Sport Roster that was announced with unanimous support by its membership in May of 2019.

Waterloo United has been granted the National Youth Club Licence for a period of two years and have created a collaborative work plan to ensure that they continue to meet the requirements, while also continuing to progress to further achieve the highest standards set by Canada Soccer. 

National Youth Club Licence holders display characteristics and demonstrate behaviours aligned with the highest expectations of governance, administration, infrastructure, and technical.

'We are pleased to announce the exemplary 39 National Youth Club Licence holders that have worked diligently over the past 12 months to demonstrate a willingness to improve, to collaborate, and most importantly to raise the level of youth football in our country,' said Jason deVos in the release, Canada Soccer's Director of Development. 

'Each club worked with Canada Soccer and their respective Provincial and Territorial Member Association to define a roadmap of standards designed to improve the experience for all who participate in the game.'

'Our Club is very proud to be a part of the first group of Clubs to receive this distinction.' said Paul Burns in the release, Executive Director of Waterloo United. 'We look forward to continuing to work with Canada Soccer in the future for the benefit of the game and the athletes who play it.'
