Ontario Soccer has announced the athletes who will represent their province at the 2017 Canada Summer Games.
Ontario’s Men’s and Women’s U-18 provincial soccer teams will take on squads from around Canada at the 2017 Canada Summer Games, taking place July 28-August 13, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
“This is a great opportunity for our athletes to test their skills against the best players this country has to offer,” said Bryan Rosenfeld, Ontario Soccer Manager of High Performance. “We're looking at this as another development opportunity for our provincial players but also we're going into this competition with the intent to win it as well.”
The provincial teams are selected from Ontario’s provincial programs, the Ontario Player Development League, League1 Ontario and scouting around the province.
For Ontario’s U-18 Women’s team, they will face off against the League1 Ontario Women's All-Star team on July 25, as part of the tune-up for Canada Games
“This will be a good test for our Canada Games squad,” said Rosenfeld. “With some of our players already in League1 Ontario for club competition, there will be some familiar faces on either side of the pitch and we expect to see a lot out of both squads.”
Featuring 16 sports, over 250 events and a major cultural festival, the 2017 Canada Games will welcome over 4,000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors.
The Canada Games are this country’s largest multi-sport event for young athletes and in 2017 will celebrate their 50th anniversary and acknowledge Canada’s 150th birthday.
The 2017 Canada Summer Games will leave a lasting legacy of new and enhanced sport facilities, volunteer and leadership development that will benefit athletes and the broader community for years to come.
