Tryouts/Orientation

U5 – U8 orientation session at Eastgate

The scheduled tryouts/orientation days for selection of Peterborough City Development (U5-U12) and Competitive (U13 – U18) teams for 2017 are now over (September 17/18 & 24/25). If you missed the tryout/orientation sessions or if you have any questions about the selection process you should contact the head coach of the team or the Director of Coaching.

Registration for the U5-U7 development program as well as the U8 age division remains open at this time. You can register directly on PowerUp or contact coach Leanne McLaughlin if you would like more information about these programs.

What Happens After Tryouts?

The playing season runs from mid-May to August or early-September. Depending on the age division, indoor and outdoor training, development and conditioning sessions take place over a much longer period.

See – Club Calendar

When tryouts/orientation are over, your main source of information will be the Head Coach of your age division. Once you have been notified about your team assignment you can proceed to register your child using PowerUp, our on-line registration and payment system.

If you need additional information about the selection process you should contact the Director of Coaching.

*LTPD is an acronym for Long Term Player Development, which is the OSA’s mandatory program for delivery of age appropriate skills development and competition at the various stages of development for ages U4 to adult. While the OSA provides a separate LTPD matrix for Recreational and Development (pre-competitive) programs for U8 to U12, the PCSA follows the guidelines for the Development stream.
