3v3 Winter League U9-U12


3v3 Recreational Winter League Description


NOTE: The Winter League has reached its registration limit.  You can still register to be on the waiting list.  If someone withdraws, the next player on the waiting list will be invited to join.


This is the introductory level of soccer at Ottawa TFC.  Whether you are new to the sport and want to try it out or have experience playing but don’t wish to play at a competitive level, this is the programme for you!  Test the sport and play for the enjoyment of playing.  In this fun atmosphere, players will learn how to be comfortable with the ball at their feet, grow as players and will expand their love of the game.

Once again we will be heading to our indoor soccer fields for this winter, where we enjoyed a fun and popular season last year, despite the pandemic!  Each Saturday, we will play at the Superdome Sports Centre in Gloucester (on Bearbrook Rd) from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM (09h00 to 10h00).  This will be a fun "3v3" league in which players will have lots of "time on the ball" at every session.

Get your long-sleeves on and come play!

Facility Restrictions:

The Gloucester Dome does not currently allow spectators in its facility.  These are rules that are external to our club and beyond the club’s control.  We strive to abide by the rules while concentrating on offering the best soccer experience possible.  OTFC staff work very hard to build the best possible environment for kids to grow and develop, and this includes extensive efforts to abide by the ever-changing rules and regulations around COVID-19.  As everyone’s patience for COVID-19 policies inevitably wears thinner, let’s please strengthen our resolve and remain flexible, positive and hard-working to do the best we can for our kids and our club.
