U13-U18 Ottawa TFC Competitive

Last edited: January 2020


Program Description


Ottawa TFC's U13-U18 Competitive teams are amongst the most competitive teams in the Eastern Ontario Region, competing at the district and regional competitive levels. Competitive level teams train twice weekly, with an optional third session available with the Ottawa TFC Skills Centre   


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


Ottawa TFC covers a geographic area from Central Ottawa (St.Laurent Area, to the east end), operating mainly out of two campuses:  Central (Pineview Park) and East (Millennium Park).  Upon registration, please indicate whether you prefer to play as a "central player" or an "east player".  While the club cannot guarantee that you will play or train at your chosen campus, 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.
