About the Soccer Academy
In September 2012, the North Vancouver School District formed a partnership with the North Shore Girls' Soccer Club (NSGSC) to offer the Soccer Academy at Windsor Secondary School. The Soccer Academy provides for the participation of all students, male and female, regardless of their soccer experience.
The Academy covers all aspects of soccer training: skills, tactics & fitness, as well as injury prevention, nutrition and leadership training. The Academy is geared for students who are interested and enthusiastic about improving their soccer skills and fitness.
Classes are held primarily in the NSGSC Development Centre (Indoor Bubble) located at Windsor and Windsor Secondary School turf field. On-field coaches are highly certified, and from NSGSC, NVFC and VAFC.
The program consists of the Soccer curriculum as set out by North Shore Girls' Soccer Club and the Physical and Health Education curriculum established by the B.C Ministry of Education. Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.
The Academy is open to students in grades 8–12, and will be held in either Block 4 or 8 of the secondary school timetable, depending on the cohort and location.
Registration in the Soccer Academy will not affect a student's eligibility to play for their home school's soccer team.
* Transportation to and from the Academy site is the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian.
