Ontario Soccer has suspended all soccer related activity until the end of June. This includes competitions, training, education sessions and team building activities.
As social or physical distancing is not a concern in an online, isolated environment, activities that can be completed online, such as Referee Accreditation Clinics, on-line Coaching Courses, registering for future events and competitions, outdoor season registration and other activities that do not require public or private gathering, will continue until further notice.
Ontario Soccer has moved all Community Coaching clinics (Active Start, Fundamentals, Learn to Train and Soccer for Life) as well as Referee Certification to a hybrid on-line/on-field platform for 2020. Go to our Coaches page and our Referees page for details.
