OSC Hosts Canada Soccer's Women's National Team

Last week, the Oakville Soccer Club had the privilege of hosting the Canada Women's National Soccer Team as they prepared for their International Friendly against Germany on June 10, 2018. Two training sessions took place at OSC on the Pine Glen fields.

During these sessions, OSC's Boys U15 OPDL team and several players from the Boys U15 GHSL team had the honour of training with the Women's National team. The boys received three training sessions by Canada Soccer staff in advance of working with and playing against the CanWNT. The boys were given specific tasks and roles and responsibilities to help prepare the National team for their game during the camp.

On Friday, June 8, OSC's boys met up with the National Team at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, where the Canada vs. Germany match would take place on the 10th. The boys trained with coaches and participated in warm up activities before squaring off against the CanWNT in the full field training session. The players were very grateful to be a part of this event and represented the Club and talent at OSC very well.

OSC Executive Director Dave Harris said of the experience, “The Oakville Soccer Club was proud to have provided hosting and assistance for the Canadian Women’s National Team’s training session last week. In hosting the CanWNT, the Oakville Soccer Club showed the wonderful partnership and working relationship between the Club and Canada Soccer. We look forward to the opportunity to host another national team opportunity in Oakville.”

The Oakville Soccer Club would like to thank the players, coaches and the staff of Canada Soccer and the Canada Women's National Team for providing an experience to our players that they'll never forget.
