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.

Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.
