“In assembling this U16 staff, our goal was to give our young players tremendous teachers at each position to see how much they would grow under our care, and that is exactly what we’ve done.This staff has a great mix of both playing and coaching experience and success, while at the same time each coach is known to be a tremendous communicator of this age group. All of us are first time Team Ontario coaches, and that newness translates to energy and excitement to get the ball rolling.” says Kamau Peterson, Head Coach of the U16 Male Tackle Program.

Football Ontario is excited to have this talented and experienced staff lead the Team Ontario program and players to a successful year and a successful 2023 Eastern Regional trip.
