NK Academy

The NK Academy serves as the foundation for talent identification and development for future NK Elite athletes. In 2015, the NK Academy launched with the formation of 9 Youth Development teams in the EAST and CENTRAL regions of the GTA. Since then, 24 players graduated from our Academy Teams into the Elite AAU exposure stream of our program. In 2019 we have grown to 30 Jr. (Grades 4-6) and Sr. (Grades 7-8) Academy teams, including the addition of the NORTH region and our Girls program The Queens of The North.
