What is a Soccer Academy?

According to North Texas Rule 3.10.3
The purpose of the soccer academies is to:

  1. Provide recreational players who have aspirations of becoming a more accomplished player an avenue to test and enhance his or her skills.
  2. Provide recreational players an opportunity to train with experienced coaches.
  3. Provide recreational players an opportunity to investigate the level of play with which they are comfortable, which players they would like to play with, and for which coaches they would like to play.

Who are the coaches?

The girls session will be led by Manuel Cordova, Head Coach of the Wylie Bulldogs and Assistant for HSU Women’s soccer.

Boys sessions will be led by Matt Pitcock, HSU Men’s Assistant Coach & former professional player.

These head coaches will be assisted by other ASC coaches and top players from ACU and HSU.
