Q: What is academy?
A: An academy is when a club, such as NSFC, keeps the children together based on their age as opposed to placing them on individual teams. If there is more than one team per age division, the players will be moved throughout both teams (or three teams) based on their development and progress throughout the season. The emphasis of academies is on development and fun!
Q: Where will practices and games be held?
A: Practices will be held on our beautiful new fields located at Sossaman and Warner (12347 S. Sossaman Rd.) in Mesa. Home games will be held on our fields, away games will be determined by the state and the POSOL. We anticipate the remaining fields and concession/bathrooms/classrooms being finished later this year.
