RDP involves more challenging training sessions, a significantly higher level of commitment, and a higher level of competition. It's designed for those players seeking a more challenging level of play than house-league.
The outdoor season involves 2 practices + 1 league game per week (for the competitive teams) or 2 practices + tournament/festival play in May, June, & September (for the tournament/select teams). The indoor season is 1 or 2 practices/week, depending on the commitment level the player opts into.
In the outdoor season we use a number of local facilities for our training sessions - including the De La Salle turf field (for our younger age groups) and Cherry Beach turf fields (for our older age groups). League games are hosted throughout Toronto, and festivals/tournaments ar typically in the GTA. We also usually attend 1 or 2 American (New York) tournaments for our U11+ teams.
In the indoor season we use a variety of turf field facilities and local TDSB/private school gyms.
For a full list of our facilities, please visit this page.
For outdoor, players are required to commit to 2 practices/week + games (either festivals/tournaments for select, or league games for rep). For indoor, players can opt into a commitment level that works with their schedule.
RDP runs year-round, and is split into indoor (late October - April) and outdoor (May - September) seasons. There are scheduled breaks in the program (first 2-3 weeks in October; late December to mid-January; 2 weeks for March Breal; 1 week in August).
Indoor fees typically vary by commitment level, and usually range from $900 to $1450. Outdoor fees are typically around $1300. These fees go toward covering the cost of facilities, coaching, registration, league/tournament/festival entries, and admin.
Players can either register and attend the fall evaluations, or contact the office to set up a trial during other times of the year. Players will then have a chance to try out RDP and see if it's a good fit.
Following a successful fall evaluation period or trial period, families will be sent all the registration information via email. If you did not receive the information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
