The NDFC Pre-Development Academy is likely to be a player’s early experiences of soccer. We strive to focus on helping those motivated young players build a secure and confident connection with the ball – one that allows experimentation, creativity and exploration. At this stage it is about the FUNdamentals of the game of soccer and we want to ensure the kids develop that love of the game.

This Pre-Development Academy does this by:

  1. Exploring different ways to master the ball (moves to beat players)

  2. Encouraging creativity during games

  3. Developing a love for dribbling and running with the ball

  4. Building confidence through fun games

  5. Focusing on ABC's and fundamental movements (agility, balance and coordination)

In addition, this program will be used to further identify players for our Development Program.  Please note, any player that is currently registered for the Fall/Winter League program or will register for the Spring League program will also be assessed throughout the season.

The Development Program is our more competitive level and requires a higher level of commitment and skill level than our club program.  Players are assessed and invited to be a part of the program.  This program starts at the U8 age group and carries on until U18.   The number of teams and training groups formed each year and age group may vary based on the pool of players and their skill level.  Commitment to this program is essential, and attendance and punctuality to games and training are extremely important.

Please note, there are no games with the Academy Program.
