Our Philosophy

Islington Rangers SL is a non-profit organization that has been providing recreational and competitive soccer programs for the community of Etobicoke since 1985 to promote healthy and active lifestyles from the age of 4 years old and up.

We are consistently working to stay on the curve of new trends, as well as creating our own. We are flexible in our approach to your children’s development and to coach education. The ultimate objective of our Club is to provide youngsters within the Club something more to aspire to than just winning.

Islington Rangers SL is a Club that strives to make players the best that they can be:

Never try to be better than someone else, but most importantly, never cease trying to be the best that you can be” – John Wooden

Identity is something that is important to us, because we want to have a consistent perspective and attitude towards soccer. We are working to communicate the Islington Rangers Identity into all our players, coaches, parents.  We have to connect all 3 groups (players, coaches and parents) with our values and how these in turn influence what players learn in training.  This will in turn give players confidence to express this learning & behaviour in games.

Islington Rangers SL will accomplish this goal of shaping confident and competent players by providing a fun, challenging and educational program. We trust players to play the game and encourage them to express themselves in a positive way without fear of making mistakes in both games and training sessions.
