Sudbury Canadians Central Region Plan

New Soccer Partnerships Establish Elite Playing Opportunities

Young female soccer players in the central region of Ontario will get a significantly enhanced opportunity to play at the highest level on the continent through an initiative that is being launched by the Sudbury Canadians Soccer Club.

In a major expansion of the Club’s long-standing efforts to provide opportunities for young players to develop, the Sudbury Canadians are announcing new partnership arrangements with soccer players from Bracebridge and Sault Ste.Marie.

Players from the three communities are joining forces under the Sudbury Canadians banner, to field Under-17 and Under-15 teams that will compete throughout the coming outdoor season against the top clubs from Ontario and the United States.

The Canadians have a franchise in the W-League, the number one female league in North America, that is ranked number two in the world.

The development of these new youth teams will provide players with a realistic opportunity to play at the highest possible level in within their own age group, and aspire to play against the continent’s top female players in the W-League.

The new partnership arrangement will build on the success of recent Sudbury Canadians teams in competing against top Ontario teams, by establishing a direct link with the Bracebridge Soccer Club, and bringing in additional elite players from Sault Ste. Marie.

The Bracebridge Storm Under-17 Girls team has competed very successfully in recent years in the Ontario Indoor Soccer League, and in the Premier Division of the Central Girls Soccer League based around the Greater Toronto Area.

The two new teams being developed under the Sudbury Canadians banner will allow the both age groups to continue to compete in the major Ontario regional leagues, the Ontario Cup and other events sanctioned by the Ontario Soccer Association.

But in addition, these teams will travel to a series of exhibition games and tournaments in the coming months to compete against U.S. teams that compete in the Super Y League, which is the highest caliber youth soccer league in North America.

The opportunity will allow the players, who already form the base of the top players in mid-Northern Ontario, to directly improve their soccer capabilities, and open up substantial new avenues for pursuing their dreams of competing at the top level of the female game.
