In 2017, Frank’s Soccer Training Academy (FSTA) kicked off their first season for their outdoor Elite and FUNdamentals programs. This year will be the Academy’s third season running the outdoor programs, and they are looking to continue expanding and developing the programs for the future.

The Elite program is for children and youth aged 9-18 who are looking to develop their soccer capabilities in a fun, learning oriented environment. The Elite program has had multiple teams compete in the East Region Soccer League (ERSL) through their partnership with the Ottawa Futsal Club (OFC), including a team that reached the Regional level. The main goal for the Elite program was to provide local players with an opportunity to continue playing soccer at a high level as they get older, by developing players to be passionate and love the game. One example of this success, is this year’s FSTA Elite U18 Girls C1 team. Although there have been many players come in and out of this team since they joine...

Happy New Year to our FSTA family! 

We hope everyone has been enjoying their time away from the soccer fields this winter. At the same time, we are excited to announce that we will be running our FSTA Elite program once again for the upcoming outdoor season. We are also pleased to continue our partnership with the Ottawa Futsal Club (OFC) which allows us the opportunity to provide players in the community, and surrounding areas, to develop their soccer capabilities as much as they desire.

Our goal for the upcoming season is to offer additional age groups and levels for our players to compete at. This year our District Development and Youth Competitive Teams (Tier 1 and 2) will be competing in the EODL under the EOSDA. We are also looking forward to seeing our U18 Girls age group compete at the ERSL Regional level again this season, after facing some tough competition last year. Assessments for this group begin on February 5, 2019. Full schedule available here. There is no assessment fee...

WOW! Another outdoor season in the books! FSTA would like to thank all of the dedicated players, coaches and volunteers who helped to make this season successful. 

Here are some notes from some of our coaches on their team's season!:

Frank (FSTA Elite U11B T2 & U12 T2): "The U11 and U12 teams did really well with the addition of a few new players to the Elite program. They had challenges, but were strong and subdued them. The level of individual improvement achieved is astronomical, and their teamwork and sportsmanship is unbelievable. These groups of talented, young players will go farther in soccer, no doubt. Incredible kids they are!"

Alain (FSTA Elite U14 T2): "What a great soccer season! We started with a group of players that had never played together and at the end of the season they became a 'Team'! The players increased their physical fitness and soccer skills by applying the strategies and technical plays learned throughout practices, games and tournaments. They played thei...

 Wow! We can't believe it is almost August!

Our FSTA Elite U14 Tier 2 team started off their season with a competitive 3-3 tie against West Carleton. The team has successfully put together at least one goal every game in their league play, which is something they will be looking to build off of for the remainder of the season. The team also competed in the Cumberland Snakebite Tournament at the end of June and finished third in their division with two wins and two losses. Well done team! We are looking forward to seeing what else you can accomplish over the second half of your season!  The FSTA Elite U14 Tier 2 team plays their next game against the Kemptville Kougars @ South Gower Park tomorrow night with a 6:30pm kick off. Hope to see you out there!

Our FSTA Elite U17 Regional team came out with a bang for their first game of the season, upsetting a strong West Ottawa team with a 3-2 victory at home. The season has been relatively slow to start for these ladies due to all the...

We cannot believe it is already March! Our FSTA Fusion teams have been working hard for the first half of the indoor soccer season and have had a very successful season so far. 

The last weekend of January, our U18 and U16 Fusion Girls and our U14 Fusion Boys teams competed at the Bob Rathwell Memorial Tournament. Our U18 Girls competed in the U19 division and took home first place, while our U16 Girls finished in third place. The U14 Boys also had a competitive weekend, but did not finish in medal position. 

This past weekend, some of our FSTA Fusion players also competed with the Ottawa Futsal Club's U16 Girls Ontario Futsal Cup team.
