Program Description

The winter Academy offers the most professionally run development program available to players in East Ottawa.  We have an extremely qualified and well educated coaching staff, including three UEFA 'A' licensed coaches, who will work with academy squads at each level, training three times weekly (twice in the dome, once in the gym), playing full field games across the winter, and competing in competitive leagues over the weekends.  

The Academy program caters to the most talented players in Ottawa who are seeking to fully harness their playing potential in order to reach the next level of play.  The program builds towards the year round professionally academy which begins at the U13 age group.
