NC Spurs Youth Academy
Our whole focus is improving the individual player. We won't focus on winning at all cost like many other soccer clubs do. During the academy years, producing quality players who are technically proficient to play the game the right way is of the upmost importance to us; winning at this level is not. A win for the NC Spurs academy is when we see our players that we have coached, playing the right way, having fun doing so and having a big impact on any future team that they play on. We look forward to working with your children and making them better players.
TestimonialsI played for Jimmy and Maca for two years at the Fayetteville Academy, coming in at the age of 17 from England. I have been playing soccer all my life and under countless coaches, yet Jimmy and Maca will always be remembered as a special pair. Even after 17 years of soccer, Jimmy and Maca still managed to teach me things about the game I didn’t know. When it came to playing they create an environment that as a player you have no fear to make mistakes, allowing players to demand the ball and play with freedom. This certainly developed me as a player in my years at the Academy. I have learned many things from Jimmy and Maca, however not just on the field. They are two of the most selfless people I have met, always willing to help others, whether it be through soccer or feeding the homeless in their Operation Engage program. This is something I try to take with me today. I am preparing to go into my Junior year at Eckerd College, preparing for another preseason with the men’s soccer team, none of which would have been possible without Jimmy and Maca.
