Welcome to Ottawa TFC's elite academy side!

Ottawa TFC's elite academy is a year-round program for players who want to train and compete at the highest level. Training sessions consist of endurance, mental preparation, goal setting, advanced techniques, tactical awareness, discipline, mental toughness and more. Coached by Ottawa TFC's licensed national and international coaches, players train from Monday to Friday after school and play games on weekends. Players who are rostered to the OPDL teams (Ontario Player Development League) compete at the highest competitive league in Ontario. The 2021 U-17 Girls won the OPDL Gary Miller Charity Shield.

Ottawa TFC is honored to introduce the academy side of the beautiful game of soccer to your child. Recognized as a National level club by Canada Soccer, Ottawa TFC's ultimate goal for the U13-U18 academy program is to ensure the player follows the talented pathway, moving players into our provincially and nationally acclaimed Junior and Senior Academy programs at the U13 category and older. Ottawa TFC's desire is to not only train the player but to also teach them to be a great person off the field.
