Better By Doing
Our mission is to accelerate the development of soccer and soccer players in and around Calgary. Thinking differently and implementing solutions that allows for 4 seasons of training and development includes finding ways and creating the spaces that encourage and allow athletes to practice, train, and play the game on turf throughout the year.
Our vision is to create better soccer players by allowing athletes, families, clubs, and communities to have a better access and better place to train.
Nothing happens without moving forward. In the Fall of 2018, with years of cheering, watching, and even helping to coach kids (including our own) in youth sport, it was obvious that something was missing from total development. Rather than waiting on the sidelines for another generation of development to become overlooked, we built a place with the intention of allowing developmental and cultural change.
Up to that point, training was exclusively done in school gymnasiums and while this was simply accepted as "the way it is" it certainly was not good enough. Training on hard floor surfaces did not translate into proper development and often led to injuries, poor touches, and confusion for developing players.
A simple solution came to mind and a dad and his kid's coach dreamed up, worked on, and created the solution. A space known as the CNSC was born - with proper turf to train on and access to all.
This proved to be what coaches, athletes and families wanted and needed.
