U8 Development Academy


The Nordic U8 Development Academy will provide year-round programming for our youngest Boys & Girls. The goal of the academy is to train players on the fundamentals of the game, reinforce Nordic’s key core values - work ethic; standards; teamwork - and to continue to nourish a love of the game. 

The NDA is for players born in 2015 and 2016.

The U8 Development Academy will run from Aug. through June. Sessions include the Fall session, Nordic’s 3 winter sessions - approx. late Oct. through mid April ; and the Spring session, approximately May through June. Each session is approximately 6 to 7 weeks.  Players are not obligated to sign up for each session. 

The benefits of the program include continuity for the players and coaches; an opportunity to develop as part of our Nordic community as they train alongside our Nordic teams at our Indoor Center; and of course, practice makes permanent so the more hours our young players can spend training well together, the higher chance of positive soccer development.
