Player Assessments (trials) are for players of all levels: OPDL, GHSL, PHDL, and Grassroots.

It is vital to emphasize trials and assessments are all-inclusive. Every player is welcome to attend, no matter their skill or experience. The players’ development is most important!


OPDL (U13-U17): Launched in 2014, the Ontario Player Development League (OPDL) is one of the province’s first standards-based, youth high performance league that combines top level competition with strict high performance training standards. OPDL encompasses the U13 to U17 age groups, for both males and females, and represents young players’ early graduation to a genuine high performance training environment. Targeting the top athletes in the province from U13 to U17, the OPDL constitutes the highest level of competitive youth soccer in Ontario. 

GHSL (U13-U18) – The Golden Horseshoe Soccer League is the regional league for the south region. The league is made up of Niagara Soccer Association, Hamilton & District Soccer Association, and Peel Halton Soccer Association. Each district is allotted positions in age group/gender from U13 to U18.

PHDL (U13-U18) – The Peel Halton District League is a reflection of the high level of sophistication and competition of our member Clubs and the out of District Clubs who look to compete here. The PHDL offers tiered levels offering meaningful competition opportunities to aid in player development. Each district is allotted positions in age group/gender from U13 to U18.

GRASSROOTS (U8-U12) – Part of the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) strategic partnership between PHSA and our member Clubs. The Peel Halton Development League was the first LTPD format league in Ontario, launched in 2008 with a U8 program.  Large player pools per Club allows coaches to mix and match squads based on training and development needs of players. Each district is allotted positions in age group/gender from U8 to U12.
