Ontario Player Development League 

The Ontario Player Development League (OPDL) has been designed to be the first league of its kind, as it combines top level youth competition with strict high performance training standards. The league is a pathway for players in Ontario to reach both the Provincial and National teams, and also provides excellent exposure to Canadian and American Universities for players interested in working towards a scholarship. Full details on the league can be found in our club's OPDL FAQ's document:
 Richmond Hill Soccer Club OPDL FAQ's
More league information can be found in the Parent Handbook: OPDL Parent Handbook
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the OPDL, please contact our coaches. Note: if you are e-mailing our OPDL coaches, please provide your contact information and a brief description of your child's playing history.
