Spring 2023 Rec Program

Our Spring Program will run for 10 weeks, and all players will receive one coaching session a week with their OV Toros FC professional coach. Throughout the 10 weeks, the program provides the players with the opportunity to learn fundamental and new soccer skills through our different weekly topics.

On game days, we work with volunteer coaches (parents/guardians/siblings) to assist the running of the teams. The players will start game days a couple of weeks into our Recreational program start date. 
  • Our U6 players will be grouped on ability/skill level each game day to make sure games are fun and challenging for each player.
  • Our U8 to U14 players will be put in teams for game days within the first two weeks of the season and will stay in the same team throughout. Players will have the opportunity for one buddy request when registering. 
COST FOR FULL SPRING SEASON
$275 - includes OV Toros FC practice jersey and game day uniform (U6 receive game jersey only)

We do offer scholarships. Details and inquiry here: http://ovysl.org/_files/policy/Scholarship%20Policy.pdf
