Talented Pathway Soccer Programs
The Ottawa TFC Academy program caters to the most committed and hardest working players in Ottawa. Directly affiliated with the MLS Academy of Toronto F.C. players are seen by TFC staff on a regular basis, and become eligible for MLS homegrown signing status with TFC. The OTFC Academy is without a doubt one of the most professionally run, competitive and dynamic programs in the province. Elite Academy (after school) teams will compete in Ontario's highest youth league, the O.P.D.L.
The U7-U8 Junior Academy is a program for the most committed, focused and dedicated U7-U8 players in Ottawa who are looking to concentrate more seriously on the sport. Players train/play twice weekly under the tutelage of our Academy coaches while participating in our fun but competitive "champions league" games on Saturday mornings.
Players are invited to the program through the U7-U8 Spring Festival series, the U7-U8 development leagues (regular Friday night programs), or they can sign up to participate through the U5-U8 Soccer Ninjas.
Players in the academy squads will form part of one of the most professionally run training programs in the region. Academy squads will compete in regional leagues and festivals through the summer season, while training 3-4 times per week.
The Ottawa TFC year-round 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 soccer 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 are done training in time to be picked up at 5:30 pm, with ample time in their evenings to spend with family, on homework, and other interests.
