“The Team Ontario U18 Women’s program is only in its second year and the ability for Ontario to have two teams and showcase so much talent is directly because of the hardworking volunteers and community organizations helping to create more pathways for Women in our sport. We look forward to watching both of our teams compete on the National stage in Ottawa, ON this summer in their pursuit for a gold medal.” says Football Ontario’s Executive Director, Aaron Geisler.

See the full roster and breakdown below:

“Following our extraordinary successful identification process, I’m more excited than ever to gather our players together for the first time. Team Red is ready to begin the work to win a gold medal on home turf in Ottawa this summer. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in a single year.

Ontario has arrived!” says Team Red Head Coach, Mark Ouellet.

You can expect a technical and tenacious team that’s All In on establishing Ontario as the standard for Women’s Football in Canada.” says Team Black Head Coach, Cam Davidson.
