Ontario Soccer – Exclusive partnership provides additional career options for League1 Ontario female athletes 

April 24, 2017

Vaughan, ON – The League1 Ontario Women’s program has announced a unique partnership with the Peel Regional Police that aims to bring great career opportunities to Ontario’s finest female athletes.

As an exploratory agreement, League1 Ontario will connect some of the league’s top players, at a critical stage in their lives, with a growing Peel Regional Police department that has a specific focus on recruiting candidates from all over Ontario, who are driven, active and natural leaders.

“As part of our on-going efforts to make Peel Regional Police an employer of choice for female applicants, Recruitment and Staff Support reached out to League1 Ontario,” said Cst. Cameel Chambers, Peel Regional Police. “This exclusive partnership will provide another platform for our recruiting initiatives by providing access to individuals, who strive for physical fitness and possess leadership skills.”

As an Official Program Partner of League1 Ontario, Peel Regional Police will contribute to the sustainable operations of the league, which will make it possible for its female participants to experience a great career within League1 Ontario. This experience is one that they can potentially take with them into a fulfilling and exciting policing career.

“League1 Ontario is keenly focused on providing opportunities for our players, both on the pitch and off,” said Dino Rossi, League1 Ontario Commissioner. “While our top priority is to prepare our athletes for success in their football career, we also want to expose them to exciting opportunities, when the time comes to hang up their boots and we believe this partnership does just that.”

This is the second partnership announcement in just a week’s time, which involved one of Ontario Soccer’s high performance leagues.

Ontario Soccer recently announced Toronto FC as a Premier Partner, which involves the MLS club becoming a Presenting Partner of the Ontario Player Development League.

“This is an excellent example for the new generation of partnerships Ontario Soccer seeks to enter into with forward-looking organizations like Peel Police,” said Bjorn Osieck, Director of Business Operations with Ontario Soccer. “Properties like League1 Ontario, the foremost professional-amateur soccer league for female and male players of distinction in Canada, are excellent entry points for partners trying to connect their brands into our soccer community.”
