Launched in 2014 with the 2001 age group, the Ontario Player Development
League (OPDL) is one of the province's first standards-based, youth
high performance league that combines top level competition with strict
high performance training standards. This innovative exciting youth high
performance program is an important component of the overall movement
to adopt the core principles of Long Term Player Development (LTPD)
across soccer at large in Ontario and Canada. OPDL encompasses the U13
to U17 age categories, for both males and females.
OPDL represents young players' early graduation to a genuine high
performance training environment, targeting the top athletes in the
province from age groups U13 to U17, constituting the highest level of
competitive youth soccer in Ontario. OPDL operates more as a high
performance training program than merely a league.
