The league provides competitive soccer for athletes over age 35 throughout the city of Hamilton and surrounding areas. The league has grown from a hand full to over 40 teams playing in 5 separate divisions. The divisions support the player's need for different levels of competition. The League has been in operation for over 40 years and is affiliated with the (O.S.A.) Ontario Soccer Association through the (H&D) Hamilton and District Soccer Association. The league will work to provide up-to-date information for our membership. We will be updating this website throughout the season. Please take time to view our pages and provide us feed backup.

It is the mission of the Old-timers Soccer League (OTSL) to provide a positive recreational and competitive soccer experience for player and coaches. We emphasize team commitment, fair play and sportsmanship above winning. I will respect the Old-timers League Rules, and show respect to my fellow teammates, opponents and officials. I will respect the zero tolerance policy of the City and the League.
It is our goal to create an environment that will benefit the individual as well as the team. We believe a positive team experience will ensure the long term viability and growth of the Old-timers Soccer League.
