University are holding a presentation for the community. The presentation will
encompass the future direction of soccer in the country and province as well as the new
OUA competition for Algoma University. Dramatic new changes are taking place and the
Academy is poised to take a leadership role. Long-term player development is the
cornerstone of the new OSA program and the SUFC Academy will explain how players
in the community can benefit.
The Academy has reached an agreement with Algoma University to recruit and train
players to play at the university level. The Academy is providing year round programs
aimed at developing players of all ages and genders, to reach their potential. There is a
specific program for high school players who will have the opportunity to train with the
mens and womenʼs teams and take part in games, both indoors and outdoors.
Algoma University coaches will be promoting the new teams and explaining the process
involved in preparing for OUA competition in 2013. Teams are being entered into the
local mens and womenʼs leagues to help prepare players and build the University
program. Menʼs coach, Neil Ovey and Womenʼs coach, Bill Howe will be on hand.
The community is invited to watch the Academy in action as three age groups will be
training from 9:00 to 10:30. The presentation for the community will take place on Field
one from 10:30 to 11:00. This will be followed by the first training session for both
university teams. High school players from the Academy will be taking part.
