This program is recommended for players that are serious about their technical and tactical development, while pursuing the collegiate scholarship pathway. OPDL is an innovative, exciting, youth high performance program and is an important component of the overall movement to adopt the core principles of Long Term Player Development (LTPD) across soccer at large in Ontario and Canada.
