In an effort to serve our most competitive players we are creating the OPFC Pre-Academy Program. This program will begin in June of 2021. We will serve our U11 Boys players as well as all of our U11 – U 14 girl players. The OPFC Pre-Academy age groups will train during specific times throughout the 2021-22 season. Summer season (June/July), Fall Season (August-November) & Winter season (December/Mid January).
During each season the Pre-Academy coaches will select 1 high-level team comprised of the top LOSC and WUFC players to go and compete at local or travel tournaments. Every player will be allowed to participate in the Pre-Academy training sessions during the summer season. In the Fall the Pre-Academy program will become invitation only with those players invited playing in high level competition.
PRE-ACADEMY REGISTRATION INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED AFTER WUFC/LOSC TRYOUTS.
The Head Coaches from each age group at WUFC and LOSC will be Co-Head Coaches for each OPFC Pre-Academy age group.
Pre-Academy players will attend a scheduled THIRD practice each week in addition to their LOSC and WUFC practices.
Tentative Summer dates are June 4, 11, 18, 25. July 16, 30. August 13, 20, 27.
