Information on joining the OSU Force Academy:


  • Players must be registered in advance in order to attend

  • Players will be sent an offer to be placed within a team for the upcoming season. Their offer will include all registration information, cost and program details

  • Program costs are dependent upon the team in which they are selected for, and will be communicated to you specifically at the time of offer

Program Placement:

  • OSU believes in inclusive programming - will always do their best to offer as many teams as we have players for and to attempt to not have to release players who wish to play (no cuts if it can be avoided)

  • In the OSU Force Academy, players may be moved, based upon performance, between levels or teams within the season to ensure they are participating at the appropriate level

  • Force Academy Teams are named by colours (Black, White, Blue, Silver, Gold, Iron, Steel, Navy, Bronze) and are designated as per their level of play

  • The Force Academy Program is OSU’s competitive soccer program 

Schedules & Programming:

  • Pre-season training for summer teams will begin after April 1,  with their summer season beginning as of May 15th through August

  • Summer and winter teams will play in the appropriate tier in available leagues

  • Game play is generally within Eastern Ontario (other than provincial level play). At U10 and above, teams are permitted to travel outside of our area for festivals and tournaments. 

  • Training for winter program teams generally begins in late October or early November, and runs through until March Break. Winter programming is scheduled to begin as of November 1.
