NorTac Soccer Academy (Mod Academy)

The Nortac Soccer Academy (often referred to as Mod Academy which is short for Modified) is where our youngest players (4, 5 and 6 year-olds) begin their love for the game. Our goal is to provide a strong developmental environment for players and their coaches in a fun and stimulating environment at an affordable cost. For organized soccer at this age, we firmly believe that volunteer coaches working under the supervision of an experienced technical director and staff coaches can deliver an exceptional experience to our participants while keeping the program affordable

Our Philosophy on Player Development

We believe that the proper environment to develop young players in the 21st century must include the following elements:

  • Age-appropriate training and instruction in the techniques and tactics of soccer
  • Training that emphasizes and encourages possession of the ball and creative, skillful play as opposed to an over-reliance on physicality and "kick and chase" tactics
  • A commitment to developing every player and team
  • A commitment to developing every coach
  • An appropriately competitive environment for each age of play
  • Healthy competition but an emphasis on participation and development. No scores or standing will be kept
  • Most importantly, a priority to make soccer FUN and ENJOYABLE for the players
