History of the Peterborough Wolverines Football Club
Thanks to a group of dedicated football enthusiasts, the Peterborough Wolverines Football Club was formed in 2010. As a member of the Ontario Football Conference, which is a division of Football Canada, the club has seen immense success over the years.
It all started with the house league football program, which had been running for several years. In 2011, the club fielded their first team in the Bantam Division, catering to youth aged 12-14 years. The success of this inaugural season paved the way for the addition of a Junior Varsity Division team in 2012, for players aged 15-16 years.
Building on the momentum, the club added a Senior Varsity Division team in 2013, providing an opportunity for 17-19 year olds to showcase their skills. The club experienced several victories in these divisions, winning provincial championships, with the most recent one being the JV team in 2017.
As the league expanded and evolved, the Wolverines Football Club decided to grow once again in 2021. They introduced an Atom Division team for 9-10 year olds and a Peewee Division team for 11-12 year olds. These additions allowed the club to align with Football Canada's plan, resulting in division names changing to U10, U12, U14, U16, and U18 in 2020.
The league itself also underwent a transformation and is now known as the Ontario Summer Football League (OSFL). This rebranding reflects the commitment to providing competitive football opportunities for the youth of Peterborough.
The Peterborough Wolverines Football Club takes pride in offering five divisions of competitive football, a testament to the dedication and passion of the local football community. The club's growth and success set them apart, making Peterborough a city that stands out in youth football development.
