Welcome to Ottawa TFC's academy side!
The Ottawa TFC Academy program is the highest level of play at the club. It is home to the most passionate and committed players at the club, and serves as a pathway to our provincially and nationally acclaimed Junior and Senior Academy programs that start at 13 years of age. Players will work with some of the most talented and highly certified coaches in the region, in a fun, chellenging, and development focused environment which stands toe-to-toe with every program in the country.
What can I expect as a academy soccer parent?
U11-U12 Academy players train three times weekly and compete in weekly game play. We compete in local competitive leagues (EODSA), and occasionally participate in festivals around the region and province.
Teams are led by Canada Soccer certified coaches, and overseen by some of our most advanced staff coaches. We are a national level youth club, and the only club is the official Eastern Ontario youth affiliate of Toronto FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) - the highest professional level of play in North America. Players and parents in Ottawa TFC's academy program can be proud of being part of one of the most respected programs in Canada. Players will grow as people, atheltes and leaders,as these are some of our core principles and objectives as an organization. They can dream of moving up through the club's pathway to provincial, national and professional team programs, but they should should above all be prepared to have a lot of fun along their journey, and enjoy a fun, safe, and challenging evironment, everytime they are out.
