Return of Games – 19 July
Following four weeks of team training in small groups, the stage is set finally for the real games to begin. As a result of diligent work and collaboration between PCSA, our neighbouring rep clubs, the District Association (ECOSA) and the City of Peterborough, we are please to announce inter-club play for players U10 and older will begin next week, starting July 19. The U6/U7 and U8/U9 programs will continue as before on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Inter-club games will involve teams from Peterborough, Cavan, Cobourg/Port Hope and Lindsay on a Home and Away basis. Team coaches will provide the schedules and any other relevant information to the players as soon as it becomes available. A weekly schedule of home games is displayed at the right side of the screen, or at the bottom of the page on some mobile devices. Team practices will continue once or twice each week on an adjusted schedule to give field priority to scheduled inter-club games.
The club, the team officials and the players are excited beyond words to see games commence after a 16-month absence.
Peterborough City Soccer Association is following Public Health advice and Ontario Soccer guidelines as a way to ensure all our players, coaches, staff, volunteers, members and visiting teams are safe as we return to the pitch. You are requested to follow the safety protocols when you arrive at the field, such as contact tracing, hand sanitizing and physical distancing.
All PCSA and visiting players as well as team officials and referees must complete a COVID-19 Screening Test before each game and training session. When visiting another club please complete that club’s Covid-19 screening test on the day of the game using the links in the table below.

Most PCSA players have completed the registration process. If you haven’t registered yet and are interested in joining the club, please contact the Director of Coaching or the Registrar who let let you know whether there are any spots open in your age division.
Tryouts for 2022 teams will be held in September. Check here for announcements.
The registration fee for all age groups is $95 per player. This fee will cover training for 10 to 12 weeks, depending on the program. Players should bring a cheque (make payable to Peterborough City Soccer Assoc.) or cash to give to the team coach or manager.
A supplementary fee will be assessed for U13 and older teams to cover the additional cost of inter-club league play such as field permits, referees and field lining when these costs are determined.
Looking for U14 Boys and U15 Girls
PCSA has room for a few additional players on its U14Boys (b.2007, Coach James Beavis) and U15 Girls (b. 2006, Coach Angela Gaskell) teams. If you would like to improve your soccer skills while making new friends this summer please contact the team coach or email the Director of Coaching.

PCSA Receives $15,000 Jumpstart Grant
When the pandemic and state of emergency was declared in March 2020, PCSA paused all soccer programs for its 200+ families and 350+ players. This has placed a financial strain on PCSA players, families, and operations. There will be additional costs associated with starting up again due to enhanced health and safety regulations. Now PCSA has been approved for a $15,000 grant from Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund which is sponsored by Canadian Tire Corporation. The scheme is designed to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada.
“With Jumpstart’s support, PCSA will be able to purchase the personal protective equipment needed for a safe re-start anticipated this summer”, said PCSA President Dan Moore. “It will also be used to purchase a practice t-shirt for every player, further easing the registration burden on players and families. Operationally, Jumpstart will support staff honorariums over the summer, staff who have been volunteering since June 2020”.
