About field art
Field Art's mission is to raise the level of the game in Canada, developing players and coaches. We play a direct, attacking style that prioritizes effort, intelligence and creativity. Excelling at the beautiful game is a combination of skill and art. Field Art proudly works with First Nation and refugee groups to give everyone an opportunity to play and access professional training.
We make players feel welcome and introduce them to the art and craft of soccer. We help players develop all the basic skills necessary and equip them with the right tools to succeed (ball control, pacing, dribbling, defending, shooting, passing etc.).
We also understand the importance of mental skills and the role mental ability plays in developing a strong and focused mindset that helps young players progress technically in a fun and professional environment.
