The HCFC Academy is a professionally designed youth soccer program for committed players who are looking to improve their game and be challenged in their soccer development. Based around the 4 Corner Model these weekly sessions will challenge players decision making, technical ability & tactical understanding.

Our U7-U11 Academies are designed to support players who are still in their "Fundamental" & "Learning To Train" development stage. Players are grouped according to their current development with the ability to move from week to week. The main focus at this stage is building a high level of technique. In the older age groups we will also touch on some tactical elements such as awareness of space and movement. 

Our U12-U18 Academy program will focus more on developing the team mentality. Game and Tactical Understanding are important elements at this stage while also being able to produce technique on demand. Players are also grouped according to their current development with the ability to move from week to week.

The HCFC Academy looks to support players in all stages of their development. Whether they are involved in high performance or just learning the game we will ensure that all players work with the groups and coaches that are right for them. We hope that through this all of our players will strenghthen their commitment and passion for the BEAUTIFUL GAME.

The Academy program is led by HCFC’s Technical Lead Daragh Fitzgerald along with other members of HCFC's Provincially and Nationally certified coaching team and runs Monday nights at Merle Logan Turf Field, Nanaimo.

Within the program we look to maintain a 10:1 player to coach ratio for optimal engagement and player support.
