Nordic U13-U14 Club Program – What to Expect.
'Try ins' – Nordic will be hosting 'try ins' for the 2020-21 season. New players will be invited to attend regular team practises, scrimmages, games and camps to be introduced to the Nordic coaching staff and the Nordic soccer philosophy. The 'try in' method allows 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 on 'try ins' contact club DOC Jim Goudie at email@example.com.
After try-ins 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.
