Another Tournament win for the U18 Soo City United Girls. This is their 4th tournament to date, finishing as champions 3 times in Vaughn, St. Catherine's and East Qwillinbury and finalist in Oshawa. The girls have played 20 tournament games and currently hold a record of 19-1. I can't express enough how proud I am of the 2005 and 2006 girls. They started their training together for the first-time last November. The girls trained twice a week at the NCC and had a fitness session weekly with Rachel Cobean. They are truly a unique group not just because of their success, but more so how they have come together as a team. Their next tournament is The USA Cup in Minnesota July 14-16 and then The Ottawa Champions Showcase August 5-6. Special thanks to the coaching staff Carlo Spadafora, John Iachetta, Joe Carbone and Tricia Killoran. Also, thank you to all the parents who have been a great support for the girls!! - Steve Mazzuca, Head Coach

Q: Which field will my child play at?

U7 – U18 will play at Strathclair (Second Line)
Q: What are draft games?
A: Ages 9 - 18 players will participate in pre-season draft games in front of coaches . This usually consists of two games. Your child will then be placed on a team. Coaches try to make them as even as possible to have a competitive but fun summer season.
Q: What equipment will my child require?
A: Your child will be provided a jersey, shorts and socks.
Your child will need soccer cleats, shin guards and a water bottle with their name on it.
Q: How can I help?
A: We can always use coaches, managers and league conveners.
Time commitment is usually 1-2 hrs per week. Without coaches, we cannot have a successful campaign.
A: I do not have a soccer background.
Q: Are you fun, encouraging and a positive role model? That’s what we are looking for in new coaches. The game can be taught to you, but these qualities are what will make you successful.
Q: I want to coach and have my child's friends on the same team.
A: This is an opportunity to meet new friends. The teams will be created as equal as possible. So short answer - no.
