Toronto – In the past ten years the cost of playing competitive soccer in the Province Ontario has increased astronomically; however, the value offered players has not matched a player’s investment. This inequity is the underlining factor that drove the formation of the Youth Soccer League of Ontario (YSLO) by Bert Lobo, Former President of the Central Soccer League and the Ontario Youth Soccer League.
“I understand that sports and soccer in particular is a business. However, if one truly believes that the customer’s needs should always come first, then we as league developers should go over and above the call of duty to please our players, our customers, and the parents that investment in them”, says Lobo.
“At the Youth Soccer League of Ontario (YSLO) our players are our most valuable assets. As our most valuable assets, not only have we created an environment to develop and foster the best club soccer programmes available throughout the Province of Ontario, but we help players and teams with marketing, scholarship acquisition as well as provide assistance to secure professional contracts, develop their websites and even create player profiles”.
Anthony Huie, founder of Riverside Canada Football Academy shares these sentiments.
Huie adds, “The business model of the Youth Soccer League Of Ontario is refreshing. We admire the YSLO’s mission to improve the level of competitive play of both female as well as male players and instill the ‘love and passion’ for the game. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that we have agreed to work with the Youth Soccer League of Ontario to provide value-added benefits to players.”
In fact, the YSLO has recently negotiated a strategic partnership with Riverside Canada Football Academy to help players to secure athletic and academic scholarships at various Canadian universities such as York University, University of Toronto, Guelph, Waterloo, Ryerson, McGill, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, RMC, Carleton, Trent, Concordia, McMaster, Seneca, Humber, George Brown, University of Montreal, St. Mary’s, Acadia, Queen’s and the University of Ottawa”, says Lobo.
In the U.S and internationally the scholarship sourcing services offered by Riverside Canada Football Academy, Northern Recruits and YSLO expands dramatically to include the likes of Salem University, West Virginia, University of Maine at Fort Kent, Cornell, UNLV, Robert Morris, Buffalo State, Florida International, James Madison, Niagara, Slippery Rock, Syracuse, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Utica, Villanova, Wright State University, Rider University, Longwood University, Yale, University of Pittsburgh, Radford University, Colgate University, George Mason University, Columbia University, University of San Francisco, University of California Riverside, California State Fullerton University, College of William and Mary, Hartwick College, Cornell and many more.
Lobo adds, “This new alliance is extremely powerful. Together YSLO, RCFA and Northern Recruits have vaulted to the top, becoming a leading enabler of success in the soccer community. Hundreds of players have already gone through with the assistance of RCFA, Northern Recruits and Lobo. This includes players who have successfully signed athletic scholarships or have signed with professional teams.”
“Moreover, our network of international professional soccer contacts is vast as we boast relationships with Chelsea, Arsenal, QPR, West Ham, Leyton Orient, Charlton, FC Malmo, Fortuna Hjorring, Tottenham, Dynamo Zagreb, Watford, Toronto F.C. and many more. “
These relationships have allowed Bert Lobo to help players to pursue their pathway with Pro clubs and their Academies, such as with Real Madrid, Toronto F.C, Chelsea, Fortuna Hjorring and Interwood.
Players that join the new league can tap into YSLO resources and that of Riverside Canada Football Academy to enhance their ability to compete and train in Europe or at top Universities & Colleges in the U.S and Canada.
