Academy

The North York Astros offers a full development program. Participants in the program will be eligible to join the Academy teams starting at 8 years of age.
The objective of the Academy Program is to duplicate an international model of player development through the training environment and competition – a proven system of success! The players are selected for this academy program through tryouts which can be arranged on an ongoing basis.
The goal is to identify talented players at a young age and develop and nurture them in a professional environment with certified expert coaches. Competition is provided based on these same principles with the focus on development versus only winning games. Our focus on each individual player and their development allows for the players to flourish to their full potential in a safe yet demanding environment.
The Philosophy of our Academy Program:
• To identify talented youth players with long term potential to become semi-professional or professional footballers or participation at the collegiate level.
• To develop and nurture the youth players the Academy offers 3 or 4 practices and a game per week
• To develop the individual athlete as a whole through technical, tactical, physical, mental training.
• To train and develop in a positive environment with encouraging and constructive comments and feedback, in order to maintain and build self-esteem and confidence in every athlete
The Academy Program is a year-round program with a indoor season and an outdoor season designed to ensure the continued development of the player. The indoor season takes place during the fall and winter (1 Nov – 30 Apr) while the outdoor season is in the spring and summer (1 May – 31 Oct).
The tryouts for each season are ongoing.
