U17 Premier Program

Nordic 2006 (U17 Premier) Program – What to Expect.

Tryouts – Nordic will be hosting tryouts for the upcoming season in early July. Players will be introduced to the Nordic coaching staff and the Nordic soccer philosophy.  Tryouts allow coaches to get to know players on a more personal basis, and allows families the opportunity to decide if club soccer is a good fit for player and parent. 

For more information contact Jim Goudie at jim@nordicsoccer.org or Craig Stone at craig@nordicsoccer.org

Following tryouts players will be sent appropriate paperwork to register for Nordic and initial payment is expected to accept your spot in our program within 2 weeks.
