North FC Developmental Academy Team

North FC’s Developmental Academy is a pre-club, practice-only program for players born in or between 2017 and 2018. It includes two weekly training sessions featuring skill-based activities and small-sided soccer games.

North FC’s Academy is run by professional coaches and designed to help players develop and sharpen technical skills, learn the game, and bridge the gaps between rec, travel, and club soccer.

The Developmental Academy is an important component in North FC’s player pathway as it prepares players for the next step in their soccer development.

North FC is excited to partner with Coach Chris Soccer Development to provide top-level training to players ages 5-7 within the North FC Developmental Academy.

Coach Chris’ innovative Juniors training focuses on high-pace, high-repetition, pattern recognition activities and small-sided games. His approach engages players and has made him a recognized leader in Northeast Ohio for decades. Learn more about Coach Chris Soccer Development here.
