Ontario Player Development League and Waterloo United

What is the OPDL?
The OPDL is one of the province’s first standards-based, youth high-performance leagues that combines top-level competition with performance development training standards. For more information from Ontario Soccer, Please click here. The OPDL is one piece of a much larger, transformative process that Ontario Soccer is undergoing to modernize soccer in Ontario. This innovative youth high-performance program is an important component of the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) pathway, across soccer, in Ontario and Canada. LTPD helps talented youth players, who have the ability and dedication to train at higher levels, develop into top players with a strategic training philosophy in mind.

Who can participate?
All new license holders will begin their OPDL offering at the U13 Division. The program at WMSC will commence with tryouts in September 2018 and will be open to Boys and Girls born in 2005 and 2006. https://www.theopdl.com/

The WMSC has scheduled two information sessions to review the OPDL Program Outline. We invite all current member and non-member families to attend. While we have specific Boys and Girls presentations the majority of the content will be the same in each presentation.
