Next Generation Academy 2018

The Next Generation Academy is a new program for male players ages 7-13 that will encourage youth players to focus on leadership development while maintaining a love for the game. Next Generation focuses on a holistic approach to developing youth soccer players. Next Generation prides itself on developing all aspects of the game; technical, tactical, physical, and social. By incorporating leadership development, players will develop skills such as time management, work ethic, honesty, integrity, and awareness, which directly impacts a player’s ability on the pitch. Our main focus is to develop well-balanced players both on and off the field. A player’s love for the game will continue to grow as they gain quality technical training and leadership tools.  


Next Generation will educate, encourage, empower and most importantly challenge young players to develop in each aspect of the game.  The two-hour program will begin with a leadership session when players will learn and develop leadership skills. It will conclude with an on the field training session allowing players to grow their passion and development for the game.


Next Generation believes with encouragement, education and activity great players will develop and leaders will emerge. Space is limited, and only 50 players will be accepted to the program on a first come first serve basis. These players will be mentored and trained by current and former NC State Men’s Soccer coaches and players, who know and understand the importance of developing all aspects of the game.


In addition to our Leadership & Technical Training component with the NC State Men's Soccer Coaching Staff and Players, all Next Generation Academy players will receive:


  • A FREE 2018 Full Day Summer Camp Credit (a $249 value)!
  • Custom Adidas NC State Soccer Uniform (Jersey & Shorts)
