The Provincial Program is available to all OSA registered players who are competing at either an Under 14, Under 15 or Under 16 age group.
The Ontario Provincial Development League (OPDL) is the primary venue in which potential Provincial Team Players are detected. There are however, alternative player detection options for those OSA registered players who do not compete within the OPDL. Please review the OSA bulletin’s I2106-008 and I2016-040 for more details.
The Provincial Program will focus on player screening, talent identification and benchmarking of players through competition.
The Under 14, Under 15 and Under 16 Provincial Projects will take place from January to April. It will involve one weekend of three player screening weekends per month (January, February and March) and one preparation weekend and one inter-Provincial Teams competition in April.
It is at the inter-Provincial Competition in April where the CSA will be present to scout the players for potential invite to CSA National Excel Environments.
