Our Soccer Expertise
Our founder, Nick, is an ex-collegiate soccer player who played for Queens University of Charlotte during their most successful season in school history in 2006 when Queens made an “Elite 8” appearance in the National DII Tournament.
Our Coaching Experience?
Our founder Nick has 8 years of coaching experience. He played at college at Queens University of Charlotte. We are different than other recreations soccer organizations because we don’t rely on volunteers to coach. Instead we hire coaches that are good soccer players.
This way when coach Nick wants to work on developmental drills, he explains the objective to soccer players who implement it with thier teams.
We love the game of soccer and we teach good quality soccer at age groups, starting with our U6s.
Our Success Stories?
Nick’s players have gone on to play at the highest level of prestigious clubs such as: Barcelona Academy Elite Team, Charlotte United Gold Team, Charlotte Rapids, and Charlotte Eagles “A” Team.
His players also play for top Middle and High Schools around Charlotte including: Quail Hollow Middle School, Community House Middle School, Crestdale Middle School, Arborbrook Christian Academy, and Ardrey Kell High School!
Most recently, one of our U18s, Franco G. who graduated in 2021 was offered a spot on Johnston and Wales team. He gladly accepted!
