Welcome to Ottawa TFC's competitive pathway!

The Ottawa TFC competitive program is for players moving up through our player pathway, and looking to train more often and compete against clubs in the district and region. As compared to our open programs, the competitive program provides an increased focus on player and leadership development, both of which are central to the club's player development philosophy. The competitive program includes those who are working their way up to the club's Academy tier, as well as talented young athletes who simply wish to compete at a high level in the regional and district. It's fun, challenging, and slightly more competitive than our open programs.


What can I expect as a competitive soccer parent?

This program is run by some of the most qualified and passionate coaches in our club. The program has been hailed by Ontario Soccer as one of the very best in the province for player development, and it is also hailed as a lot fun by our players!

Teams are led by Canada Soccer certified coaches. We are a national level youth club, and the only club that is the official Eastern Ontario youth affiliate of Toronto FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) - the highest professional level of play in North America. Players and parents in Ottawa TFC's competitive program can be proud of being part of one of the most respected programs in Canada. Players will grow as people, athletes and leaders, as these are some of our core principles and objectives as an organization. They can dream of moving up through the club's pathway to provincial, national team and professional programs, but they can also simply enjoy training and playing at a high level in the program itself.


More about the program...

The U13-U18 Competitive program is for players looking to train and play regularly, in a fun but competitive environment. Teams train together twice weekly, once in a dome and once in a gym, while playing games in the Coliseum indoor competitive league (weekend game). Players can join an additional training session each week by signing up for the skills center. Teams will also occasionally participate in tournaments and festivals around the region and province.

Players are grouped by age and gender into teams.
