Croatia Norval SC 

Croatia Norval Club History


Formed in 1985, HNNK Croatia Norval CSNC joined the Savez in 1987 with the support of Zagreb Toronto and Oakville Velebit. 

A dedicated group of individuals met during a number of planning sessions at the Croatian Social and Cultural Centre in Norval, Ontario to establish the club.  They were:  Ante Francetic, Berto Skoko, Bosko Prkacin, Bozo Peric, Drago Peric, Filko Nosic, Fra Mladen Cuvalo, Rafo Prce, Rudi Tomic, Steve Hrkac and Zvonko Luburic.  in 2003 another group dedicated their efforts to form a youth program.  These individuals were:  Alojz Vidackovic (Treasurer), Ante Curic, Ivan Pakovic, Janine Pavkovic (President), Kris Kristic, Kruno Penavic, Marinko Perkovic, Silvestar Trograncic, Stanko Perkovic, Suzi Nosic (Secretary), Tonci Cuvalo and Zoran Nosic (Vice President).  (Note, positions listed were those held at the time)


Croatia Norval SC begins its inaugural season in the Toronto & District Soccer League in the spring of 1985.  After joining the Savez in 1987, they were awarded the 39th Annual Croatian National Scocer Federation Tournament in 2002.  The club began fielding two teams in the 1990 season.  The first team played in the Toronto & District Soccer League (TDSL) and the other team played in the Peel-Halton Soccer League (PHSL).  The club later hosted the 15th Annual Croatian National Soccer Federation youth tournament in 1992.  There were 12 clubs participating by then.


The club has been a tireless supporter of the community organizing countless social events including dances (Valentines, Easter, Halloween) and Banquets. 

The youth program which was initially formed in 2003 consisted of 74 players in its first year and now has grown to over 250 players in house and rep leagues by 2013.
