Junior Academy
U11 - U12

NBT Junior Academy program is designed to support and guide players who wish to make the transition to competitive soccer. The program is designed for youth players who have a strong desire to increase their technical skills while also learning a little more about the tactical aspects of the game. The goal is to provide a positive environment where each player can be challenged and develop their skills in a team setting.

The program is a 10-month commitment organized in 2 seasons: Fall (August to November) and Spring (February to May). Players attend 3 practice sessions per week with their teams. Each season, players will play in multiple tournaments, matches against other competitive teams, and participate in US Club leagues. All games are in our region with travel being within 60 miles. Game schedules will vary team to team, but you can expect 2-4 soccer weekend events per month.
