U9-U12 Ottawa TFC Competitive

Last edited: January 2019

Program Description

Ottawa TFC's U9-U12 Competitive teams are amongst the most competitive teams in Eastern Ontario Region, competing at the district and regional competitive levels. Teams train twice weekly, with an optional third session (Technical Training).   

This is a program for committed and talented young athletes who wish to play soccer on a more serious level than the recreational players.  

Given the merger of two clubs this year to form Ottawa TFC, please indicate on the Base Player Registration Questionnaire as either a "central player" or an "east player".  While the club cannot promise that every player will play right in his/her back yard, we will strive to put players on teams that train and play as close to home as possible.  Where possible, entire teams will be formed at either campus, to make the most convenient season for everyone possible.   

As an orientational guide, the main campus for "east" is at Millennium Park, and the main campus for "central" is at Pineview park, although other fields and parks in those vicinities are still used.
