Lighthouse Legal Services is a proud sponsor of the Pickering Football Club’s OPDL Girls 2010 team! Encouraging girls and women in sport is close to the heart of Lighthouse Legal Services, and we are proud to have our logo on the girls’ jerseys.
Pickering Football Club creates and enhances opportunities to participate, develop, and excel in the sport of soccer, while promoting an active lifestyle.
The Club is a registered non-profit organization incorporated in September, 1984 and governed by an 9-member volunteer Board of Directors. The mandate of the PFC is to provide soccer related programs to the residents of Pickering, and the Durham region which is delivered by a team of 7 full-time staff, 10 part-time staff and 500+ community volunteers that assist as coaches, team managers, camp counsellors, event staff and fundraisers.
The Ontario Player Development League (OPDL) is the highest level of competition in Ontario for players U13 and up.
OPDL isn’t just a league. In fact, competition is a relatively small part of it. The league moves the focus from solely trying to win a trophy or avoid relegation, to developing players through a structured blend of high performance training and age appropriate play. In the OPDL, you’ll see mandatory heightened training with sport science and sport medicine components, complimenting regular weekly game play against other top players, from May to November.
The OPDL is not for everyone. As the Elite Pathway for players in Ontario, it requires a high level of commitment.
