Long Term Officials Development

MO LTOD InfoFlyer RG v5

The Ontario Soccer Association is proud to announce the launch of the Long Term Officials Development (LTOD) program. 

Over the past three years, the Match Officials Development Committee and OSA Staff have surveyed, conducted analysis and discussed programming with thousands of registered match officials, Districts Referee Coordinators, clubs and relevant stakeholders throughout Ontario. 

From that work the LTOD program has been designed and it will advance match officials development in the same way LTPD revolutionized player and coach development. 

A five-year strategic initiative of the OSA, the LTOD is now an integral component of the Operational Plan of the Soccer Operations Department. 

LTOD - The Pathway to Match Officiating Excellence 

LTOD will provide a standards-based education and development program, through strong leadership, inclusivity and support. 

All aspects of the Match Official Development Program will be strengthened, as Development Support Team members, Match Officials and the game will benefit from a ground breaking development and training program.
As an important part of the rollout of LTOD, the OSA will be hosting Regional LTOD Information Sessions across the province.

Regional LTOD Information Sessions are currently scheduled for:

  • Feb. 15 | BMO Centre, London
  • Feb. 22 | Canada Room, The Ontario Soccer Association, Vaughan
  • Feb. 28 | Tim Hortons Field, Media Room, Hamilton
  • Week of March 21 | York Region Offices, Concord
  • March 28 | Kingston | TBD
