Ontario Soccer is pleased to announce the selections for the 2018 Provincial Projects.
The Provincial Program is available to all Ontario Soccer registered players who are competing at either a U14, U15 or U16 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 Ontario Soccer registered players who do not compete within the OPDL.
“We’re excited to see this latest crop of athletes come into the provincial projects. Their clubs have done a fantastic job developing them,” said Bryan Rosenfeld, Ontario Soccer Manager of High Performance. “We’re looking forward to working with them over the next few months to assist in fine-tuning their skills.”
The Provincial Program focuses on player screening, talent identification and benchmarking of players through competition.
The U14, U15 and U16 Provincial Projects will take place from January to April. It will involve three player screening weekends (January 13-14, February 24-25 and March 24-25), one preparation weekend (April 21-22) and one inter-Provincial Teams competition (Apr. 27, 28, 29)
It is at the Inter-Provincial Competition in April where Canada Soccer will be present to scout the players for potential invite to National Excel Environments.
The screening sessions and the preparation weekend sessions will take place at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
Ontario is hosting the Inter-Provincial Competition weekend in 2018 and it will take place at the Soccer Centre (Indoor and Outdoor Field) and also at Vaughan Grove Outdoor Field.
