The Oakville Soccer Club recently announced that they have entered into a partnership with the Minor Oaks Hockey Association (MOHA) for a Two Sport Play initiative.
This initiative, between the largest programs of their respective sports in Canada, will see players U4 to U18 who wish to compete in two sports each season given the ability to do so through a two sport pricing structure and specialized scheduling. This will allow parents a new option to see their children participate in multiple sports rather than simply choosing one sport over the other.
This program will begin with OSC’s Summer Outdoor registration season in January of 2017 and continue into MOHA’s registration season beginning in April 2017.
“We are thrilled to announce the Two Sport Play initiative in partnership with the Minor Oaks Hockey Association,” said Dave Harris, OSC’s Executive Director. “The initiative now allows for young athletes in the community to play two sports without the pressure of having to choose. I would like to thank the Board of Directors of MOHA for their enthusiasm and commitment to providing this opportunity for the good of the youth of Oakville.”
“MOHA is pleased to engage in an initiative that supports the philosophies of the Hockey Canada long term player development model and enables young athletes in Oakville to benefit from both sports,” said John Verdon, President of MOHA. “We look forward to working with an association of OSC’s calibre and, together, providing increased recreational opportunities for both of our memberships.”
Details of the partnership will be released in the near future. The Oakville Soccer Club and the Minor Oaks Hockey Association look forward to building a lasting partnership that will see Oakville athletes develop their physical literacy and social skills though participation in both soccer and hockey.
