The NDSC Academy program is open to all levels. The Academy Program offers extra training (additional training outside of regular team practice) that will help all players develop their individual skills and game play. This is the perfect opportunity for those players wishing to move up in level: they will be placed within a group by ability and/or age where they will most succeed and grow. Players development will be continuously assessed throughout the program, there may be player movement in order to benefit each player and help them strengthen all their abilities and skills. NDSC's Academy goal is to grow interest and love for the game of soccer, and to assist all players in achieving their goals, whether it be moving up from house to REP level, or from REP level to Varsity.
U6-U7: Introductory Training
This program is designed to provide a fun and welcoming introduction while teaching the basic skills of soccer. These sessions will include a variety of fun games and skill-based activities, as well as small sided scrimmages to introduce the game of soccer.
U8-U10: Development Training
This age group is key to a soccer player's development in their athletic abilities and skills. If one wishes to play high level soccer (such as Varsity or Premier league) in the future, it is necessary that they get the proper coaching during this stage of development. This is where all players should learn ball mastery and begin learning more about the game of play. These sessions will emphasize on ball control and technique.
U11+: Intermediate Training
This is the age group where we will focus on technical, tactical components of the game with increased pressure and higher demands on focus and discipline. In addition, a focus on speed and agility is incorporated into training sessions. This is the stage where players begin participating in competitive drills.
Goalies interested in furthering there development as keepers can train in the academy with Staff Coaches. These sessions will focus on learning all aspects of goalie positioning and play. Goalies may then train with other academy groups in game like situations in order to assess their understanding of the game from the keeper's point of view. As the goalie progresses, they will focus on goalie skills (diving, positioning, high balls, challenging, etc).
