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 U9 to U12 teams, which means that LTPD travel restrictions can be waived. All teams, including ECOSA teams, are required to submit a Travel Permit (ATF) approved by their District Association at least two weeks prior to the festival.
We welcome clubs to submit multiple teams in the same age division – we will ensure that the teams do not play against each other. 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.
