Elite Youth Competitive Programs
The Ottawa TFC Academy program caters to the most talented players in Ottawa. Directly affiliated with the MLS Academy of Toronto FC, players are seen by TFC staff on a regular basis, and become eligible for homegrown status signing status with TFC. The Academy is without a doubt one of the most professionally run, competitive and dynamic programs in the province. Elite Academy (after school) teams at U13 and U14 will compete in the O.P.D.L. in 2019.
The Junior Academy is for the more committed players at the club looking for a more development than is offered by the regular recreational program. Players are invited to the program through the U8 spring festival series, the U7 and U8 development leagues (regular Friday programs), or can sign up to participate through the U5-U8 Soccer Ninjas program.
Players selected to the academy squads will form part of one of the most professionally run training programs in the region. Academy squads will compete in regional and provincial level leagues through the summer season, while training 3-4 times per week.
The Ottawa TFC year-round Academy program is absolutely one of a kind in this region. Players train with our professional coaching staff, on a full year schedule modeled after European professional soccer academies. Training is in the late afternoons, directly after school, with bus transportation available for players in the area. Players go from school to training every weeknight, and are done training in time to be picked up at 5:30 pm, with ample time in their evenings to spend with family, on homework, and other interests.
