Ontario Soccer LTOD Meeting – Monday March 13, 2017

Thank you to the 75+ people that attended our NSA LTOD Information session at the Holiday Inn, St. Catharines.

The Ontario Soccer presenters – Nicky Pearson and Tony Camacho – did a great job of explaining the vision and direction of Long Term Official’s development (LTOD), especially reinforcing the message that each Match Official regardless of age, ability or desired career goals can choose their own individual path to development and ultimate level of Officiating.

Ontario Soccer Announces Launch Of Long Term Match Officials Development

Ontario Soccer is proud to announce the launch of the Long Term Officials Development (LTOD) program. Over the past three years, the Match Officials Development Committee and Ontario Soccer staff have surveyed, conducted analysis and discussed programming with thousands of registered match officials, Districts Referee Coordinators, clubs and relevant stakeholders throughout Ontario. From that work the LTOD program has been designed and it will advance match officials development in the same way LTPD revolutionized player and coach development. A five-year strategic initiative of Ontario Soccer, the LTOD is now an integral component of the Operational Plan of the Soccer Operations Department.
