U6 to U8 Orientation – Spring 2018
Orientation and registration for the U6 – U8 development programs for children born in 2010, 2011 and 2012 will take place in the spring of 2018. Parents and players in these age groups are more than welcome to visit the clubhouse and view the facilities at Eastgate during the September 2017 orientation days for the older players. Club members will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.
Children born in 2013 or later are not eligible to join the PCSA for the 2018 season.
U9 to U18 (2018) Teams
The scheduled tryouts/orientation days for selection of Peterborough City Development (U9-U12) and Competitive (U13 – U18) teams for 2018 are now over (September 16 – 23, 2017). 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 PCSA Director of Coaching.
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.
When tryouts/orientation are over, your main source of information will be the head coach of your age division. If you need additional information about the selection process you should contact the PCSA Director of Coaching.

*LTPD is an acronym for Long Term Player Development, which is Ontario Soccer’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.
