Play. Inspire. Unite. 

The Ontario Soccer High Performance Program has released the player recommendation process for Technical Staff of District Member Clubs and Ontario Recognized Academies.

This is being done so that players within Ontario will have the opportunity to be recommended by a certified and qualified Club or Academy Head Coach or Technical Director.

Before beginning the process, it is highly recommended the coach, player and parent read and understand the information bulletin on the Recommendation Process: I2017-028.

The recommending coach can select this link to complete the required documentation for whom they wish to recommend:

Player Recommendation Report

The recommending coach will then complete the Coach Information page and provide their NCCP and Ontario Soccer registration numbers to verify their coaching certification level and status. If no NCCP number (i.e. foreign license) is available please provide a scanned copy of the Coaching Certificate as outlined on the page.

The recommending coach will then be directed to watch ten minutes of Provincial Teams’ game film.

The recommending coach should note the jersey number of the Ontario Provincial Player whom they believe their recommended player(s) is the equivalent of or better than. The coach will then download and complete the appropriate player evaluation form for each individual player being recommended. Once completed the document will need to be uploaded as prompted on the page.

The Recommending coach should have the following available:

  • Player’s name
  • Player’s date of birth
  • Player’s Ontario Soccer number
  • Player’s email(s) contact

The Player recommendation package is to be signed by the recommending coach, the player being recommended and the parent of the player being recommended.

The recommending coach is to submit the completed package on or before the closing date of August 24, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.

The Ontario Soccer High Performance Program will review the player recommendation packages and assess if the player should receive an invite. Incomplete or inaccurate packages will not be considered for review.

The High Performance Program will contact those players and the recommending coach if they have been invited to the upcoming Ontario Soccer Talent on Location Day Event.

The Ontario Soccer Talent on Location Day event for the players is yet to be confirmed however, the unconfirmed dates are as follows:

Players born 2005 - September 22/23 weekend

Players born 2004 - September 29/30 weekend

Players born 2003 - September 29/30 weekend

Confirmed dates and details will be published once finalized.

The email to the invited players will contain additional details (i.e. report time) and any other paperwork that will need to be completed prior to the event. This paperwork will be submitted by the player at the event.

The Ontario Soccer Talent on Location Days will take place at the Ontario Soccer Centre (7601 Martin Grove Road, Vaughan L4L 9E4) on the full size indoor or outdoor turf field.

If you have any questions or challenges regarding the submission process, please contact Brandon Frith. For all other questions, please contact Bryan Rosenfeld.
