The Ottawa TFC Elite 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 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 will be done training in time to be picked up at 5:30 pm. As such, they train more than any other player in the region, while still leaving ample time in their evenings to spend with family, on homework, and other interests.  


This program is observed and monitored directly by the Toronto FC staff at least twice per season.
