The Peterborough City Festival is open to Girls and Boys Teams from U9 to U12. Mixed teams can play in the Boys Festival. U13 to U18 teams can apply for the Peterborough Challenge Tournament that is held on the same two weekends as the Peterborough Festival.
The Festival is classified as Inter-District which means that teams from anywhere within the Province of Ontario are eligible to apply. The Festival qualifies as a Memorable Event for U11 and U12 teams. U10 and younger teams will be limited by travel time guidelines from their home Districts.
ECOSA borders on 5 neighbouring districts, namely Durham (DRSA), York (YRSA), Huronia (HDSA), Northeastern Ontario (SNE) and Southeast Ontario (SOSA). The PCSA clubhouse is located 40 minutes from the SOSA (Trenton – Belleville – Kingston) district boundary (via Hwy. 7), and 25 minutes from DRSA (Durham) district boundary (via Hwy. 115) therefore U9-U10 teams from SOSA and from DRSA are eligible to travel. All non-ECOSA teams will require a Permission to Travel permit approved by their District Association.
We welcome clubs to submit multiple teams in the same age division – please indicate in the comments section of the application form whether the teams will be balanced or tiered. Due to scheduling constraints, it is possible that the teams will be scheduled to play at the same time on different fields. Therefore it is advisable to have a separate coach or team official available to manage each team.
