About Us - "The Academy"
More to come.
SUFA was founded in 2010 with one goal in mind. To improve soccer through effective planning and coaching. The Canadian Soccer Association came out with a brand new approach to soccer that SUFA was the first to adopt in the north. The focus is on "Player Development" as opposed to games and stats. We whole-heartedly support that approach.
Whether a player wishes to just enjoy playing the game more effectively or wishes to pursue that scholarship, it is important that a plan be developed and followed, throughout the players life. In addition, the child must be exposed to effective coaching at each stage along the path.
At SUFA, we do NOT cut players. We develop them. We acknowledge that children develop at different rates and different times. Our program is inclusive, educational and fun.
- Our coaches are qualified and dedicated to ongoing development.
- We have a program for development from age 4 to 18.
- We will provide opportunities to excel.
- We will provide appropriate levels of competition at each age.
- We are year-round.
- We work with ALL levels of ability and ALL players receive coaching from Coaches.
- We will provide a pathway and opportunities for scholarships.
- We will get the most out of your child to help them enjoy playing the game.
