Welcome to the Ontario Player Development League!
OPDL is Canadian soccer's first standards-based youth high performance league that combines top level competition with strict high performance training standards. This exciting new youth high performance program is an important component of the overall movement to adopt the core principles of Long Term Player Development (LTPD) across soccer at large in Ontario and Canada.

There are local community charities to help with soccer registrations fees.
1. Their Opportunity Minor Sports Corporation. This charity provides funding for children from low-income families, less than $45,000 annually, into organized sports and recreation activities. What makes Their Opportunity stand-out, is that funded children enter a “give-back” program, which is where each child that is enrolled ‘pay it forward’ through community service and outreach, within 3 months of being funded.

The WISC Individual Development
Academy is a new and exciting soccer
program which ensures every child
has fun while developing soccer and
physical literacy skills. The IDA pro-
gram also uses soccer as a vehicle to
develop social skills and core values
such as sportsmanship, teamwork, fair
play and respect.
Players will train twice weekly in a developmentally stage and age appro- priate program; The program will be delivered by the licensed coaches from the WISC Tech Team. This new program format ensures all children are actively engaged and in- volved throughout every one hour ses- sion. This also guarantees increased touches with the use of deliberate practice.
Players will be exposed to a fun com- petition style format during each ses- sion, and will be closely monitored by the Tech Team to ensure that all play- ers reach their level of play. Attention to detail on player progression will be a key factor in this program, where player assessments and skills testing will be a vital component in our player development program. Information for individual player home work will be available from our T/D .
With increased playing time, more touches on the ball, and a balanced approach to the organization of teams, this will ensures every player will ex- perience quality time on the ball, and not only have a fantastic time but will also develop and improve their soccer skills. Individual technique and skills will be the focus through small sided games. This is in line with the OSA ’ s LTPD plan. 'Are you ready to play' then join today!
