Winter 2020 Soccer Season

OSC will communicate with the membership in the coming weeks to share details on refunds/incentive structure for the Winter season and future season options. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation.

Summer 2020 Soccer Season

As the Summer House League season is not scheduled to begin until late May, the Oakville Soccer Club remains optimistic that programs will be back in session by that time.

OSC will continue to monitor the situation closely, and will provide updates to our membership as the Summer season approaches. OSC staff are working hard behind the scenes to ensure a fantastic summer season for all!

Registrations are still being accepted by the Club online by clicking here or by contacting info@oakvillesoccer.ca. Please note that the refund deadline is not until May 5th, therefore by singing up and/or maintaining your registration a spot will be held in the program and still provides several weeks for you to make a final decision. 

Please rest assured that OSC is working diligently to continue to provide a positive soccer experience for all, and will communicate further direction in the near future as we closely monitor this ever-changing situation.

Until we can get together again on the field, be sure to follow OSC on social media for updates, player challenges, fun activities and more!

OSC's U18 Girls Win Ontario Futsal Cup & Winter Games Gold

The Oakville Soccer Club is excited to announce that the Club’s U18 Girls team took first place at the Ontario Futsal Cup and a gold medal at the Ontario Winter Games in Orillia, Ontario this past weekend.

The Oakville Wild got off to a strong start with a 5-4 win over Mississauga Dixie Athletic on Thursday and two wins on Friday – 2-1 over the Erin Mills Eagles and a 6-1 over Peterborough City Academy. In the semi-final game on Saturday, the girls played an excellent game against Unionville Milliken resulting in a 3-1 win and a trip to the final game on Sunday which resulted in a decisive 5-1 win against Hamilton United ensuring that Oakville would return home with the Fustal Cup and the gold medal.

Chris Grierson, OSC’s Senior Technical Director said “It was a pleasure to be a part of this wonderful achievement. Throughout each game every player gave their all and fully deserved to come home as winners. Head Coach Neil Wilson has spent many months working with the team to prepare them and his dedication to the player’s development was evident. A special thanks to Team Manager Su Sunner for everything she has done not only this past weekend but throughout the past five years with the team.”

The Oakville Soccer Club is extremely proud of the players for representing the Club so well and would once again like to congratulate the team and coaches for their victory over the weekend.

New Facility Funding Initiative

The Oakville Soccer Club, in partnership with the Town of Oakville, has submitted an application for funding to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program in hopes of receiving funding to build an indoor soccer facility in the North Park area of Oakville. Initially, this project will require provincial approval before being considered for funding at the federal level.

This facility will help to accommodate the growing need of indoor field time at the Oakville Soccer Club. Programs including Youth House League, Adult House League, ADP and RDP would all see additional/improved indoor offerings.

In addition, this facility would represent a significant opportunity for community groups and local sport organizations to utilize indoor space for recreational purposes. Preferable time slots would be available at a higher frequency, which would allow more organizations to capitalize on indoor space for community programs.

How can you help support this initiative?

Community endorsement is an important component of the funding process. OSC is asking you to show your support by signing an electronic letter of support. This will only take a minute to complete online and will go a long way in showing the provincial and federal governments how well supported OSC is by the community.

This letter details the initiative, and endorses the benefits of building this facility in the Town of Oakville. Once completed with your information, the letter will be automatically submitted through to the applicable parties involved in the funding process.

As the provincial government is currently reviewing applications for this funding process, the sooner letters are received, the better chance they will be seen before a decision for funding has been made.

The letter will automatically be sent to:

Laurie Scott - Minister of Infrastructure
Mayor Rob Burton, Town of Oakville
Catherine McKenna  - Minister of Infrastructure and Community
CC: Stephen Crawford, MPP, Oakville
CC: Effie Triantafilopoulos, MPP, Oakville North-Burlington
CC: Anita Anand, MP, Oakville
CC: Pam Damoff, MP, Oakville North-Burlington
