President of Ladner Soccer Association, youth soccer coach

Learn with us as we work to build a new generation of better hockey, soccer, basketball and other youth sports players in Canada, by building a system focused on personal and team growth, for charity.

Together, we’re building a grassroots movement that supports player development based on gender/age development, by looking at best practices for scheduling, setting goals, and looking at player growth as the key goal. The Play Better Program is a program that brings accountability, through charitable donations based on metrics that you identify, to Long Term Player Development stages. Our system keeps coaches, parents and players accountable for their different milestones, and builds a culture of team and individual development.

Play Better supports coaches who are interested in nurturing the development of young players as they learn how to train, play and work together so that, as they continue in sport and focus more and more on the competition, they’re building on a solid foundation as players and as people.


  • Season calendar, expectations, documents and contracts for parents, players and coaches
  • Long Term Player Development accountability plan
  • Play Better values and The Commandments for players and coaches and families
