Football Ontario Announces the Road Map for the 2024 Women’s Tackle High Performance Program
Hamilton, Ontario – Football Ontario has officially unveiled the Road Map for the 2024 Futures Identification, High Performance Academy and Team Ontario U18 Women’s Tackle Program (2007/2008/2009).
The Identification and Selection process will consist of two phases that take place from January-May and lead to the selection of the team that will participate in the 2024 U18 Women’s Tackle National Championship.
U18 Road Map
Phase One will take place in January and February with Football Ontario Futures ID Camps. There will be a total of three camps held across the province with a University of Waterloo Camp, a York University Camp, and a Carleton University Camp.
Football Ontario will also again be working with our partners in Northern Ontario to help identify key athletes that should be considered for the Team Ontario Program but are unable to attend one of these three camps due to travel. This will provide an opportunity for those who are unable to attend an ID Camp, another entry point to the Team Ontario Program.
Each Identification Camp will have limited attendance numbers so that the organization is able to provide the best possible experience to those in attendance.
These Identification Camps will be priced at $79.99 each, however, if you register prior to January 1, 2024 you will receive early-bird pricing of $69.99.
Please stay tuned to our social media networks for more information on the timing and schedule for each of our age groups which will be finalized within the next week.
