Football Ontario Opens Registration for Team Ontario Women’s Tackle Futures and Identification Camps

Football Ontario Opens Registration for Three Football Ontario Futures and Identification Camps Across the Province

Hamilton, Ontario – Football Ontario has officially announced locations and opened registration for Phase One of the 2023 Women’s Tackle High Performance Program.




Phase One will take place in January and February with Football Ontario Futures and Identification Camps. There will be a total of three camps held across the province with a Waterloo Camp, a York Camp, and an Ottawa Camp. 

Each camp will have two registration options for each age group. The Team Ontario Identification Camp will cost $69.99 and will be a way for players to declare their intent on being identified and making the Team Ontario Program. 

There will also be a $49.99 Futures option available for those who wish to attend the camp and receive the excellent coaching that will be available, but do not wish to be identified for Team Ontario. 

Football Ontario is excited to be able to once again offer opportunities to showcase all of the football talent the province has to offer at the provincial, regional, and national levels. These camps are the first stage in doing so. 

Each camp is capped at 100 participants per age group in order to provide the best experience possible to each athlete. Make sure that you register early so that you do not miss out.

“Thank you to all of our community partners for supporting our 2023 ID Camps. We are appreciative of the support we have received from our facilities and our members for promoting these events. Thank you to the U18 Women’s Tackle Coaching Staff for supporting the implementation and delivery of these ID Camps, in order to continue growing women’s tackle football within Ontario!” says Emily Todd, Programs Manager with Football Ontario.

Football Ontario will be working with PurpleShift in order to provide the most accurate Standardized Testing. PurpleShift is a recruiting, health, fitness, and social media app designed to objectively determine athletic ability. 

PurpleShift verifies athletic results using video evidence, so that all tests are done the same exact way. The app also allows athletes and coaches to see where an athlete ranks, both globally and locally, in several categories.
