Force Academy Program
The Force Academy teams, named Force Academy Black, White, Blue and Silver are all year-round based programs, in that they are selected in the Fall of each year, and their program runs for 11-12 months. Players who do not attend the Fall Trials may request a Trial through the “Tryout for OSU” top tab on our site.
Players will generally receive a minimum two team practices, plus a game per week. In addition to this, they may also participate within Centre of Excellence and/or Sports Performance training.
Players can expect to have 3-4 events per week on average, over approximately 42 weeks of the year. Force Academy teams, depending on their age often travel extensively throughout Ontario, as well as to major tournaments and showcase events as they get into U13 and older.
Most teams compete in one major event per year, such as the Disney Cup, Dallas Cup or similar high-profile events. Lastly, registration costs are generally paid on a monthly basis, over 11 months after an initial deposit. Registration costs are higher than the competitive program due to increased number of sessions, games, facility costs and level of coaching.
The Force Academy Program is geared towards players who are very committed to soccer. All players enter into the Force Academy program through a trial process.
Force Academy Black, White, Blue, Silver - the different covers may compete or have slightly different programs with a slight variance in the level of play they compete at and the number of events they have throughout the year.
