WHAT IS OPDL?
The OPDL is one of the province’s first standards-based, youth high-performance leagues that combines top-level competition with performance development training standards. For more information from Ontario Soccer, Please click here. The OPDL is one piece of a much larger, transformative process that Ontario Soccer is undergoing to modernize soccer in Ontario. This innovative youth high-performance program is an important component of the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) pathway, across soccer, in Ontario and Canada. LTPD helps talented youth players, who have the ability and dedication to train at higher levels, develop into top players with a strategic training philosophy in mind.
