This unique partnership is seen as a forward-thinking step for Ottawa's youth soccer players. As announced in 2015, OSU Soccer and the Ottawa-Gloucester Hornets have had the opportunity to formalize and grow our Club Alliance for the betterment of soccer within Eastern Ontario.
Collectively, both clubs work together to support each others festivals and tournaments, as well as player and coaching development initiatives. Within the scope of this alliance, we have seen several Hornet players join the OSU Force Academy. Most notably, Kayza Massey who joined our OPDL program, before going on to represent Ghana at the U17 Women's World Cup. Kayza is also part of the Canadian national team programs, and both clubs are proud to have provided the opportunity for her to flourish to the best of her ability.
In August 2016, while OSU hosted international coaches from Liverpool F.C. and Hibernian F.C. of Scotland, the Ottawa-Gloucester Hornets were able to host the coaches at their home facility and provide access for their players to these great international coaches.
