Sports Engine (OSCAR) - a Help Guide

OSCAR works best in Google Chrome or Firefox. Many issues have been encountered when using Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.

District Staff from across Ontario have created this help document to assist clubs in the use of the OSCAR registration system. Our staff have received basic training in the use of this program but are committed to assist our clubs as much as possible. Together we can make this work!

Step 1: How to access Sport Engine (OSCAR)

Please note, ONLY official club administrators/ registrars should be given access to the OSCAR system. This access must NOT be granted to Team Managers as club administrators are solely responsible for the registration of players and team staff.

The document outlining how to access OSCAR is available below:

https://www.ontariosoccer.net/page/show/4754027-how-to-access-oscar

If you do not have a login or did not complete the provisioning form please email admin@eodsa.ca.

You must provide:

Club Name:

Name of Administrator to be added:

Email of new administrator:


OSCAR works best in Google Chrome or Firefox. Many issues have been encountered when using Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.

Step 2: Uploading Registrations to OSCAR

·          Please note, clubs MUST use a “Naming convention for teams entered in Sports Engine when naming all teams being uploaded into OSCAR.        

·          Help videos have been created by Sports Engine to walk clubs through the registration process. Please note when “Division” is mentioned, it actually refers to the registration category (i.e. Youth Competitive “YC”)

·         All registration categories remain the same except for:

-          MO = Mini Outdoor Recreational (house league)

-          MOD = Mini Outdoor Development (district development pool)

-         SR SO = Senior Recreational - Senior Open

-         SC SO = Senior Competitive - Senior Open

-         SR O35 = Senior Recreational - Over 35 (OT)

-         SR O50 = Senior Recreational - Over 50 (Masters)

-         YC = Youth Competitive

-         YR = Youth Recreational

Please ensure these categories are used accurately as registrations will be billed accordingly

Do NOT use ORA Categories

·                 Due to some issues surrounding participant email addresses, the EODSA would strongly suggest that no participant email addresses be uploaded to OSCAR at this time.

         As each registration does require an email address, we would suggest each club create an “SE email address” to be used for ALL registrants:

e.g. YourClubName@gmail.com
