Who Should Attend?

The Nike Academy training sessions are open to all players interested in playing at a higher level and meet the criteria for the Nike Academy program (see link below). This program has been created to provide opportunities for players that have the ability, desire and commitment to play with similar minded and ability players, players that need a greater challenge. The majority of our current U8 players are not quite ready for this yet. Our Academy program helps provide the training and skill development to bridge the gap to ultimately join the Nike Academy at U10 or our Competitive program when that becomes available at U11. It is important to understand that our goal is to keep players playing soccer and make them life long soccer players.
