News and Announcements
Starting from Select Programs at U8 to high-performance teams at U18 and older, the Oakridge Soccer Club provides an opportunity for players of all ages & abilities to compete in the sport that they love and excel at. Supported by an extensive array of volunteer coaches, managers, trainers, and executive leadership team, the Oakridge Soccer Club provides community-based competitive soccer programs that support Ontario Soccer’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Models at all age levels.
Established in 1975, the Oakridge Soccer Club continues to be one of the longest standing clubs in the region. With each new year, there seem to be more ‘clubs’ or ‘programs’ offered in the greater London area, some fizzling within a short period of time. Oakridge provides a consistent approach to youth soccer development, regardless of the season. Our teams are successful due to the quality of players, families, and volunteers who support our direction.
Oakridge Soccer welcomes families from all over the greater London region. Our practice and game field are some of the best in the city with our participation fees being some of the most affordable across the region due to our business model as a not for profit, community-based, volunteer-managed soccer club. The Oakridge Soccer Club is always looking for new players & volunteers alike who are passionate about the sport of soccer and the opportunities it creates for player advancement, both on and off the field.
If you would like to be a part of a forward-thinking, inclusive, and positive learning environment, please consider joining the Oakridge Soccer Club executive board as a volunteer and help us shape our future. Our teams are always looking for support, feel free to reach out to an Oakridge coach, manager, or board member at any time.

As a community based, not for profit organization, the Oakridge Soccer Club promotes a safe and forward-thinking environment for all players to enjoy the game of soccer. Supported by a group of dedicated volunteers, we strive to compete at the highest levels our teams can reach, regardless of the season.
Good luck to all players!

The Oakridge Soccer Club is actively looking for volunteers to join its Executive Board starting September 1st, 2018.
As a not for profit, volunteers based organization, we pride ourselves in providing a positive & forward-thinking environment for competitive soccer players to excel in. With our recent growth in player & team registrations, we have immediate openings for the following volunteer positions on the executive board:
The Executive Board sets the strategic direction of the competitive soccer club on an annual basis. The Board will meet monthly to review operations, finance, teams, and general functions of the organization. The group will also be responsible for developing and executing the 2023 Strategic Growth Plan. Due the organization’s growth, there is an immediate need for more volunteers to help keep moving forward.
Volunteers DO NOT need to be coaches or managers as we are looking to the general London community for professionals who would like to volunteer a few hours a month to grow the Oakridge Soccer Club.
