Northern Ontario Partnership
Northern Soccer Academy will be working in conjunction with all Competitive and House Leagues in Northern Ontario. Our goal is to provide a place where players of every ability can go to improve their soccer skills. We will be offering different programs for those that are at a more elite level in the game and for those that are at the beginning stages in their soccer careers.
