The Nordonia Hills Soccer Academy is the foundation for all future NHSA endeavors. NHSA Academy caters to kids age 4 to 10. The Academy focuses on individual soccer skills for each player, and introduces the fundamentals of the game. Unlike a REC program, where kids are put on teams of 5 or 6 players and coached by parents, the Academy trains all kids together as a group, and focuses on basic skills, such as footskills, change of speed, change of direction, etc. The Academy Game format is a "Small Sided" approach, (3 to 4 Kids per team) that insures the maximum number of "In-Game" touches for each player. Coaching is provided and overseen by the Nordonia High School Boys and Girls Varsity Coaches.
