Vaughan Soccer Club feeds: Vaughan Soccer’s OPDL program - a leader in players getting identified to provincial programs

On November 26th. at the OPDL President's meeting, one of Vaughan Soccer’s Technical Leaders: Sergio DeLuca was recognized by the OSA in front of all OPDL licence holders for our ongoing efforts. Through his leadership and support of Vaughan Soccer’s technical coaching team, the vision and passion for player development was recognized by the OSA. Although this achievement was commonly known among all the players and members who are part of the OPDL program, it was great to be recognized among his peers in attendance.

Vaughan Soccer club was ranked #1 in both Girls and Boys for players who get identified by the Provincial programs. This is amazing achievement and true testament to VSC’s player development! See the attached image of the rankings BELOW:

VSC leader identifying players to provicial squads 2016

On behalf of all members, players, VSC and OPDL Board of Directors: Great job to our OPDL coaching staff, and keep up the phenomenal work!!! VSC is proud of all teams and their OPDL achievements.

This year, 10 players from Vaughan Soccer Club’s OPDL program have been identified on the Ontario Soccer Association's list for the 2016 Provincial Program. In total there are 6 Azzurri [Girls] and 4 Azzurri [Boys]. There are 3 girls and 2 boys selected from the U14 OPDL squad [2002 born], 2 girls selected from the U15 OPDL squad [2001 born], 1 Azzurri girl and 2 Azzurri Boys named from our U16 age group as well.

If you are interested in the 10 Azzurri players or other, please see the OSA’s 2016 Provincial Teams Final Selections City and Club Info [pdf] - http://www.ontariosoccer.net/images/publications/2016/Clubs_and_Districts/2016_Provincial_Teams_Final_Selections_City_and_Club_Info_v2.pdf

Players named on the list will be invited to the Provincial Screening Competition, which is set to get under way soon. At the Provincial Screening, players will have an opportunity to compete against one another and be further screened and identified for the Provincial Team. Approximately 40 players from both age groups will be selected from this screening and then work closely with the OSA Provincial Technical Staff in 2016.

At the end of the final selection process, 22 players will make the Provincial Team to compete in a series against Quebec's Provincial Team sometime in April. Attending the Ontario vs Quebec series will be several Technical Staff from the Canadian Soccer Association to observe the players in an effort to identify them for potential inclusion in National Teams projects.

2003 OPDL Azzurri capture the 2016 APC Alliance Cup!

The 2003 Boys OPDL squad won the APC Alliance Cup with four wins and no losses! This young OPDL Azzurri squad completed their journey to this elite level tournament with wins over teams from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. 

This weekend tournament [referred to as the APC Boys Weekend] was established in 2010. This annual event is a great pre-season opportunity for boys ranging from U9 to U19! Many of the top teams in the US arrive in from Regions 1, 2, 3, and 4 to play in Northern Virginia on over 50 turf fields and 10 Bermuda fields.

All of the high performance teams in attendance were exposed to top level officiating from some of the best referees in the US. Our 2003 Boys OPDL team, headed by coaches Luca Forno and Andrea Lombardo left Canada with the intent to be at the top of their competition brackets, and set their goal to compete for the Championship medals and bring them home to Vaughan! 

'Congratulations to the coaching staff, all the players and parents on this amazing accomplishment, we knew you could do it!!!' said Cosimo Musolino [VP Boys Competitive].
