NSGSC Spring Break Academy

Join Alistair and his fabulous coaching staff this spring break for a first rate soccer program. The Academy camps have been as overwhelming success. Here are some of the feedback we've gotten so far:

"To Coach, My daughter is in U10 and it is her second year playing. I enrolled her in the Thursday night development after a friends recommendation. It was a great decision. I have never seen her move so fast with the ball. I love the skills and the conditioning that I saw."
We just wanted to let you know how much our daughter Jade is enjoying the Wednesday sessions at Confederation and we hope that you continue with new programs. Jade can't wait to get there every week and your teams' energy and enthusiasm has definitely rubbed off on her. We are usually the first or second ones there every week.",
"A huge thank you for putting on the girls development camp for the last few Thursdays.  My daughter Taylor plays for the Zorro’s and several of her teammates are in the camp too. All are thoroughly enjoying it.  They even want to spend an extra hour each Thursday J"

Our next camp is happening at Confederation field during Spring Break, March 8th to 12th. U6 to u7 will go from 9:30 to 11:30 at a cost of only $80. and u8 to u14 will go from 9:00 to 12:00 at a cost of only $120. A fabulous Academy at a fabulous price, join us if you can.

Player/Coach Development Program


In November 2001 the board of the NSGSC voted on a coaching policy which would ensure that all of our coaches had the Community Coach Youth (CCY) coaching certification. The policy states that in order bring our training methods in line with CSA and BC Soccer standards, each coach must complete the CCY within 2 years of actively coaching a team. (The CCY is equivalent to the old NCPP Level 1 and 2 and requires 20 hours of practical and theory instruction.)

Coaching certification classes are also offered through North Vancouver Recreation. Please check back for this year's coaching classes.
