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. Have a great visit.
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.
Further to Ontario Soccer’s Information Bulletin of Jan. 29, 2020 on COVID-19 and following protocols that are in place now for sport, corporate and cultural organizations, Ontario Soccer is suspending the traditional practice of handshakes between players and match officials in all matches effective immediately until further notice.
A Message form Hamilton Soccer (District Organization)
I would like to follow up on the announcement from Ontario Soccer last night suspending all sanctioned soccer until further notice.
We as leaders in our community need to ensure that we are all following these directions. I have had several conversations with the CEO of Ontario Soccer and the President of Ontario Soccer. This decision was made through several days of consultation with Canada Soccer, Canadian Olympic Committee, Hockey Canada and public health agencies.
Please re-enforce the need to be compliant with this directive to all of your coaches and team managers. The more proactive we are now, the greater likelihood that we will be able to have a full season with everyone being healthy.
At this point we do not know the duration of the suspension of the game. I would strongly suggest that you review the upcoming tournaments that your teams are registered for. Strong consideration should be given to proactively cancel the participation in these events.
To ensure that we are communicating these messages to all those who need to take action, I would ask that you acknowledge to Ana you have received the notification from Ontario Soccer.
We will continue to provide as much information as we are able to.
