OSU was officially accepted into League One Ontario in the Fall of 2016. League 1 is a pro-amateur, standards based league, which is officially classified as the Division 3 national standard. It provides a critical development opportunity for players within our Force Academy pathway.
Participants within the League One Ontario team are aspiring towards professional play, or are competing at the University or College level. We hope that all young players within our club can aspire towards participating within League One, especially as the structure of professional soccer within Canada continues to develop.
The program is primarily for players between U17-U23 and involves match play from April-October against the other League One franchises across Ontario. Players participate within a training program, which is designed to mimic a professional team environment.
In 2018, our League One Ontario team will be coached by Peter Mapendere, UEFA B License Coach. Coach Peter can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
