Position Opportunities – Technical Team Coaches
The PCSA is seeking applications for Technical Team Coach positions. Please go to the Position Opportunities page for details.
City Team promoted to OYSL!
The Peterborough City U15 Girls will play their 2015 soccer season in the Ontario Youth Soccer League, the top competitive league in Ontario. Their second-place finish in 2014 CGSL Level 3 (10-2-2, W-T-L record) has earned them promotion to the OYSL, the highest competitive tier in the province. As a result, the best U15 female soccer teams in Ontario, from Burlington to Ottawa, will be playing here next summer, including number-1 ranked Stoney Creek. PCSA U15 Girls are currently ranked 13th in all of Ontario. Coach Mike Everson is hoping to add a couple of new players to round out his team selection.
In 2006 the PCSA U18 Boys team placed 6th in the OYSL and were runners-up in the Ontario Cup. The last time a Peterborough City girls team played at the top provincial level was in 2004 when the then U15 Girls team finished ninth in the OYSL.
PCSA Fall Development Program
The PCSA Tuesday night fall development program for all players (PCSA and non-PCSA) from U6 (2009) to U14 (2001) will continue at the Spiplex every Tuesday night until December 16. This program provides a great opportunity to develop your fundamental skills and confidence on the ball that go to the root of becoming a great player.
Thank you Nicole – Welcome Leah
After serving as the club Registrar for 8 years, Nicole White has decided to take a well earned break. The PCSA Board has expressed its gratitude to Nicole for her expert yet sensitive handling of her administrative duties and for always being there to help out whenever and wherever there was a need. The Board has appointed Leah Scott to the position of Registrar for the remainder of the term. You know Leah as manager of the 2014 U10 Girls team and the U6/U7 development program. We welcome Leah and wish her success as she takes over this very important position.
After Tryouts/Orientation – next step
The scheduled tryouts/orientation days for selection of Peterborough City Development (U6-U12) and Competitive (U13 – U18) teams for 2015 are now over (September 20, 27 & 28). Coaches are busy finalizing their team selections. If you attended tryouts/orientation you will be contacted by the team coach during the next two weeks. If you have any questions about the selection process you should contact the team head coach or the Director of Coaching.
