In seeking to refine and develop our senior academy participants as young athletes with a professional approach to the game, the NTSC Elite Academy seeks to foster five identified dimensions underpinning performance excellence in soccer – namely the technical, tactical, physical, psychological and social. The aim of our coaches now shifts to the need to translate individual technique into game situations, delivering intensive sessions which challenge participants in thinking about the relationship between game awareness and individual technique, patterns of play, and tactical astuteness. By developing ‘scholars of the game’, the elite academy is designed to facilitate the preparation of our young players to compete, achieve and excel at all levels of soccer in Canada and beyond. The incorporation of daily lunchtime seminars on sports nutrition, guided discovery sessions on anatomy and physiology and daily quizzes on all aspects of athletic performance ensure that our program goes beyond the playing field in the quest to develop the complete soccer player.
