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.  Teams will train two times weekly (sometimes three), compete in competitive leagues over the weekends, and play full field friendly games periodically to prepare for the outdoor season.  

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.
