NCAFA Announces the Launch of Summer Elite U15 and U17 Teams Program!
December 10th, 2018
Ready! S.E.T.! Hut!
The National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) today announced the launch of a new spring/summer program. The NCAFA Summer Elite Teams (NCAFA S.E.T. Program) will begin play in 2019 with the objective to identify the top 88 players between the ages of 13-16 in the National Capital Region to form a U15 and U17 team. The players will be exposed to the highest level coaching, including university, high school and community-level coaches and which will create a tremendous summer football experience. The S.E.T. Program will place a strong emphasis on skill development, speed training and creating an understanding of how to get to the NEXT LEVEL.
Up to six games will be played by each team against opponents in Ontario and Quebec culminating with the Montreal tournament formally known as the Spalding Cup (July 7-14). Dates are currently being finalized for a series of dome session try-outs beginning in February. Practices (two per week) and games will be held at central locations in the city. The program will not play games every week nor will there be any activities during high school exam week, allowing families to better enjoy their summers and players to focus on their academics. Players will represent their NCAFA and high school programs by wearing their own helmets while coming together under a single banner. A Program-branded clothing package will be included with registration.
As of December 10th, the Coaching Applications are open for submissions. Any coaches interested in participating in the S.E.T. Program can submit an application to email@example.com. Interested Head Coach candidates should have a strong knowledge of the game of football, have some playing and/or coaching experience, be highly motivated and extremely well organized.
