ORA

Ontario Soccer is pleased to announce the Ontario Registered Academies (ORA) approved by the Ontario Soccer Board of Directors on March 1 for the 2019 season. 54 Academies are now part of the ORA program, with 40 Academies having renewed their ORA status from 2018 and 14 successful new applications.

ORA Academies have demonstrated an ability to meet technical and administrative standards set by Ontario Soccer. The program is designed to identify private academies within Ontario.

47 of the 54 Ontario Registered Academies have committed to participate in the Ontario Academy Soccer League (OASL) in 2019. The OASL is the only competitive Academy league in Ontario, and the only forum for Ontario Recognized Academies to receive full benefits (entitlements) within the Ontario Soccer sanctioned structure.
