With more information than ever before, we know you’ll find the
answers to most of your questions on our website.
Dear Members, Supporters and Stakeholders,

When it comes to getting our Competitive players, coaches and match officials on the field (regardless of training or games) there is a lot that happens behind the scenes. We want to share a little of this with you to provide some perspective on the importance of our on-field operations and the efforts we take to maximize a great experience for everyone. Keep in mind that evidence of vaccination for coaches and match officials has also now become part of our administration.

  • Spot offered by the Head Coach following open house (U8-U12) attendance or successful trial (U13-U18)
  • Registration in Sports Engine
  • Parent completion of Respect in Sport
  • Completion of Player Book (Birth certificate and photograph)
  • Book submitted to and stamped by DRSA
  • Entry onto official Team Roster in Sports Engine
  • Order of uniform with team number confirmed by Head Coach.
  • Get on the pitch!

  • Evidence of appropriate level of coaching qualification (certificates submitted to Club)
  • Respect in Sport certified
  • Making Headway - Concussion training completed
  • Coaching resume
  • Screening interview with trained staff
  • Submit clean police check from Durham Regional Police Services (or other police board)

Match Officials:
  • Certification through Ontario Soccer

Our Team Managers are often the focal point of this administration. They are also screened and interviewed themselves before they get to work with your team, after that they can be chasing up to 40 families for numerous pieces of documentation all in an effort to get a team ready for the season to kick-off. As we look forward to returning the Pickering Soccer Centre for the 2021-2022 Indoor season please do everything you can to assist your Team Staff in submitting items on time. Most items still need to be processed by PFC and DRSA Staff before the first ball is kicked.

The Club Staff thank everyone for their support and patience during this busier than normal time and we truly can't wait to see some life back in the dome this winter.
PFC Facility Staff will be positioned in the lobby to check everyone in, subject to their vaccine requirements. PFC will not accept any abuse of staff or volunteers as we all try to navigate this difficult time. Please have patience and come prepared.
Make sure to Follow Us on social media for all club stories, updates, and program info!!!

Pickering’s City Centre is undergoing a bold transformation and the City of Pickering invites residents, business, and stakeholders to share their thoughts on the proposed spaces and user experience.

Inspired by world-renowned public spaces, the project will see an exciting array of new, state-of-the-art municipal facilities, including a Performing Arts Centre, a combined Seniors & Youth Centre, and a relocated and expanded Central Library, surrounded by a vibrant and pedestrian-friendly public square.
From now until September, members of the public can register online and share their thoughts on the features, functionalities, and user experience of one or more of the proposed facilities.

Visit LetsTalkPickering.ca/CityCentre to register, share, and learn about upcoming virtual consultations.
