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, 5 players graduated from our Academy Teams into the Elite AAU exposure stream of our program. In 2016, we have grown with the addition of 5 teams and a North region.
