The Caboto Soccer Club is a non-for-profit organization which was founded in 1951 by a group of Italian Immigrants. Their main objective was to play the game they loved while retaining their cultural identify. Throughout the decades, the Soccer Club evolved from offering only Senior Men’s soccer through the 50’s and 60’s to creating youth opportunities in the 70’s and 80’s and introducing our Senior Women’s program in the 80’s. Today, the Club is the oldest active representative of the Essex County Soccer Association. Caboto Soccer holds Ontario Soccer’s Silver Standard for Club Excellence and has captured 4 Ontario Cup Championships at the Senior Level. The Club holds key recreational affiliations with McAuliffe Park Soccer and South Windsor Youth Soccer Club and offers a pathway for players from U8 to U12 to participate in year-round soccer through the Liverpool International Academy in Michigan. A critical affiliation with the Tecumseh Soccer Club offers the complete player pathway into the Ontario Player Development League. (See Player Pathway Link) Caboto Soccer also places a great deal of focus on giving back to the community. The Caboto Soccer Shield of Excellence Program encourages teams to provide support to charity organizations either through raising money, donating player and staff time or any other means which helps the Charity Organization. The team that provides the biggest impact is awarded the Caboto Soccer Community Shield of Excellence Award which is presented at the Annual Award Banquet.
