Girls & Boys Program


The Northside United Academy focuses on player development in the U9 and U11 age groups. The goal is to increase your child’s skill level within a fun and exciting environment.

At the U13, U15 and U19 level, the Academy focuses on tactics to develop a better understanding of the game. Although they continue to develop their skills, they now learn why, when and where to apply these skills at the highest competitive level. This combination challenges them to grow as an all-around quality soccer player.
