OS Approves Special Dispensation to Operate Under 13 Regional Divisions
Ontario Soccer has approved the special dispensation request made by the ERSL to include the U13 age group in ERSL Regional programming for the 2019 Outdoor season.
Ontario Soccer CEO, Johnny Misley writes, "As Ontario Soccer is strategically looking at this age group to be included in Regional League play, as well as introducing standards in the future, we fully support this request."
The operation of these divisions fulfills an important gap in the current pyramid for play in Eastern Ontario. Clubs and teams have the reasonable expectation through previous season structure that Regional play will be offered in the Under 13 age group. Without it, there is no suitable offering between Provincial and District level play at this age group for our players. The ERSL looks forward to continued provision of a full complement of Regional Level play in Eastern and Southeastern Ontario.
