News and Announcements
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.

The Reds got to experience their first festival in Ancaster. The girls had a blast and they played two really strong games against Guelph and St. Catherines. We are really happy with the girls’ work. They’ve been showing great improvement on both offense and defense (positioning and looking to make the right passes on offence and especially in finding the right player to mark on defense). We will continue to help the girls get stronger kicks and work on finishing attacks with more regularity. Good job girls and thank you parents for supporting the team!
The safety of players, coaches, management and spectators is the primary concern in any weather event
that occurs during all matches sanctioned by Canada Soccer. Read more: https://cdn4.sportngin.com/attachments/document/0112/8680/Lightning_Policy_E.pdf
For anyone who missed out on Friday’s (April 27) exhibition games, they went really well. Reds played very well and demonstrated their strength against the a U10 tier two team and Whites had toe-to-toe play against a U9 tier 1 team that also played throughout the winter. Very exciting start!
A quick reminder about Sunday’s (April 29) 4:00pm: we’re back at UWO behind TD Stadium. It’s been brought to my attention that the map on teamer was wrong. Please ignore it. We’re on Alumni Field this time (the one above last week’s). Also, if you’ve yet to submit the player profile form found at the back of the parents’ package and/or submit the team fee, please remember to bring them to practice this weekend.
Practices will be on at Hazelden Park South – 430 Hyde Park Rd starting May 8. They will be run by all coaches with all players rotating through skill-oriented and game situation drills. Practices will officially end at 7:15, but we have field time so players can stay around after to play for fun and spend some time together.
Game schedules are available on teamer and the EMDSL website for both the teams: Oakridge Phoenix Red and Oakridge Phoenix White. The majority of games are on and home games are at Hazelden Park. Whenever possible, we encourage players to watch and support their teammates who play at a different time.
