We are excited to announce that Next Level Academy is holding its annual tryout for new players for the 2022-2023 Academy Program on Sunday, April 3rd, 2022 at Netsports, and Makeup Tryouts are on Saturday, April 9th and Sunday, May 1st.


Next Level Academy is a 10 month technical soccer training program (August 2022-May 2023) for rising U7 (2016 born) – rising U12 (2011 born) boys and girls. NLA has been the leader in player development for 22+ years providing the highest level of technical skill training. The NLA coaching staff’s unique, competitive, and fun training environments along with their unmatched experience within the U7-U13 age groups, has consistently prepared players for success during their most important development years. The instruction and repetition for Academy players will focus on their creativity, speed, soccer agility, and the overall players confidence while competing against their peers in various game-like situations. NLA training supplements a player’s club team and will not interfere with their outdoor practices, games, or tournaments.


  • Next Level Academy is a 10 month commitment (August 2022–May 2023), and each player selected will train one time per week.
  • In order to be considered for the 2022-2023 Next Level Academy Program, a player must be registered for NLA Tryouts.  Pre-Registration is $25 and walk-ups are accepted at tryouts for $30.
  • All tryouts registration is completed through Next Level’s PlayMetrics system.
  • Tryouts for Next Level Academy are held Sunday April 3rd, Saturday April 9th or Sunday May 1st at Netsports (see the chart below for the exact time)
  • a new player only needs to attend one day of tryouts that correlates to their birth year and gender
  • Tryouts will only be held for those players that were not part of the 2021-22 Academy. Current NLA players have already been evaluated for the 2022-23 Academy program.
  • Register your player for the tryout with their appropriate birth year.  All players must try out with their birth year.
  • If chosen to be part of the Academy program, the player will train with their birth year weekly on a specific day/time (TBA).
  • If a player’s outdoor training schedule ends up conflicting with their NLA birth year training night then our staff will provide other training night options.
  • All NLA Tryouts & 2022-2023 Training sessions will occur indoors at Netsports located at 3717 Davis Drive in Morrisville, NC 27560.
