SoccerCity – Stouffville is an indoor soccer facility located in the town of Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON. It offers programs for people who are interested in playing soccer, such as indoor league games and skills development programs. SoccerCity also has events that promote healthy lifestyle choices, such as nutrition workshops and fitness classes. The facility’s goal is to provide a safe environment where kids can enjoy themselves while they train and enjoy the sport.
Aside from the obvious differences in layout and stadium size, there are a few key distinctions between outdoor soccer and indoor. Outdoor games have to deal with rain, wind speed, humidity levels, heat index, lightning storms and snowstorms – all of which can cause havoc on a game schedule or even force it indoors for an entire season.
Indoors are typically more controlled as long as you control the elements like the temperature inside the facility (elevated ceilings work well) but also outside where teams enter from parking lots into lobbies to get warm before they play. There’s also not much need for props like nets because goals are always stationary targets that don’t move around unlike outdoors where goals could be up/down depending on what time of day or night it is.
There are many reasons why indoor is better for beginners than outdoor:
The field size and the space that you have to play in are much smaller which makes it easier for players who may not be as skilled at handling a soccer ball or dribbling past opponents.
Indoor facilities often provide more playing opportunities with leagues, clinics and open times each week. Put simply; there’s always somewhere to go when it’s raining outside.
There isn’t such a risk of injury indoors because gear like shin guards don’t get wet and heavy from rainwater so they’re lighter on your body while running around on slick surfaces inside. Outdoor games have to deal with rain, wind speed, humidity levels, heat index, lightning storms and snow.

They also have great programming on the weekends which includes clinics like “Team Training”, leagues such as their recreational league, summer camps and more.
The benefits of playing soccer while young are endless. One study found that those who played the sport for at least three months were able to maintain an average IQ score of 106 points. Another benefit is teaching your child how to become a leader and develop great teamwork skills. When children take part in competitive sports programs there’s also been findings that it can help improve their academic performance which in turn lead them to higher grades. Lastly, kids have shown improvements with their body image after they took part in these programs too.
