Football Ontario Announces Changes to Women’s Tackle Identification Camps
Football Ontario Opens Women’s Tackle Identification Camp to Players Born in Years 2003-2008 at NO COST
Hamilton, Ontario – Football Ontario announced changes today to the three Women’s Tackle Identification Camps being held across the province.
The three camps will now be open to all women and girls born in 2003-2008. The camp will also now be free of charge with an optional fee of $49.99 to be evaluated for and declare interest in being a member of the Team Ontario U18 Women’s Tackle Program (open to 2005-2007 born players).
There will be a total of three camps held across the province in the month of May with a GTA Camp, a SouthWestern Camp, and an Ottawa Camp to be held in partnership with Football Canada during National Women’s Football Weekend. Players will have the opportunity to attend any or as many of the camps as they wish upon registration. The players may use these camps as a way to declare their intent on making the Team Ontario program, be identified, or simply further develop and hone their skills with the great coaching that will be available.

- GTA CAMP: May 1st, 2022 @ York University, Toronto ON – 10am
