The Oakville Soccer Club is proud to announce that five current U18 Club players have committed to play soccer at the post-secondary level at various Canadian Universities in the Fall.
|Jake Carenza has been an OSC player since his first soccer match at the age of four, and will join the squad at the University of Waterloo in the Fall. After looking at both the University of Guelph and Waterloo, Carenza elected to become a Warrior and looks forward to working with an experienced team while participating in the Kinesiology program.|
|Robyn Hopkins, an OSC player since her U16 season has committed to attend Wilfrid Laurier University. Hopkins selected Laurier because she says she felt at home on campus and is excited to participate in their Kinesiology program. Hopkins looks forward to becoming a Golden Hawk in the Fall of 2018.|
|Asia Navalta has committed to play at Brock University in the Fall. An OSC player since U10, Navalta decided to become a Badger because the coaching staff and team seemed like the best fit and style of play for her, and because of the school's Sport Management program.|
|Kalin O'Brien, a lifelong OSC player since her first season at U6 has committed to play at Bishop's University. O'Brien selected Bishop's not only to follow in her parents sports and athletic footsteps (both Bishop's athletes and grads), but also to be a part of the re-growth of a strong team. O'Brien will study Political Science with a minor in Pre-Law.|
|Julia Semple will become a Mustang in the Fall of 2018, as she has committed to Western University to study Business. Playing with OSC since the beginning of her soccer career at U4, Julia selected Western because of the team's impressive track record (finished fourth in Canada last season), passionate coaching and academic esteem; not to mention her parents and both brothers also attended Western, so Semple saw the Mustangs as a natural fit.|
OSC's Executive Director Dave Harris said of the signings “The Oakville Soccer Club is extremely proud to recognize these five outstanding individuals who will be combining athletics with academics as they move forward with their post-secondary careers. It is a credit to all these players that they can continue their soccer careers while attending the Universities of their choice. We wish all of them the best of luck in the future.”
The Oakville Soccer Club will celebrate the signing of these players at a media event on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Edith Sorensen Community Room at the Pine Glen Soccer Centre. The Club looks forward to hearing about the commitment of even more players in the months to come.
