37 OSC Players Selected For Provincial Screening


OAKVILLE, ON - The Oakville Soccer Club is proud to announce that 37 players from the Club's OPDL program have been selected to participate in the Ontario Soccer Provincial Screenings during the month of November.

These U13, U14 and U15 players have been selected by Ontario Soccer based on their performance during the 2018 OPDL season. Founded in 2014, the OPDL is Ontario's standards-based high performance league. It combines top level competition with strict high performance training standards with the goals of developing the top soccer talent within the province.

Provincial Screenings will take place throughout November with selected players representing the province in national play in 2019. OSC was proud to have 29 players participate in the Provincial Screenings in 2017 with 9 of those players being selected representing Team Ontario in their respective age groups in 2018.

“On behalf of the Oakville Soccer Club, I would like to congratulate all the players who have been identified by Ontario Soccer in the Provincial Screening Program” said Executive Director Dave Harris. “It is a credit to OSC’s players, coaches and Technical staff that we have achieved this tremendous accomplishment. We wish all the players good luck as they work towards their goal of joining the Provincial program.”

OSC's Senior Technical Director Chris Grierson said: "To have this many players identified is a credit to the players and coaches of their respective teams. With the addition of a new age group every year it will continue to be OSC's main objective to develop players and provide them with the skill sets to impress provincial scouts throughout the OPDL season. As a Club we are extremely proud and wish all players the best of luck during their Provincial Screening event."
