About the Program 

UNITED DFC is delighted to launch our Academy Program for Summer 2022 which is a new offering to our members.

This will be a daily Monday-Friday Soccer Academy housed at one of our turf facilities and running from 9am-12noon each day.

United DFC Academy is aimed at all players seeking a high level training opportunity and is designed to give them the access to supplementary training under expert guidance to further boost their development in the game.



We are delighted that this season the United DFC Academy Lead Coach will be our new Academy Manager Mesut Mert, a former professional player with Montreal Impact FC.

Mesut was last season the Assistant Coach with our local Canadian Premier League franchise Halifax Wanderers and remains at the club now as Under-23 Head Coach.

A vastly experienced soccer expert, Mesut is also the current Head Men’s coach at Saint Mary’s University and led his team to the AUS Finals last season.

He will be joined by experienced guest coaches and members of our Future Coach initiative to deliver a quality program.



$150 per week plus tax.

Funding support available - please see KidSport (here) or JumpStart (here). For further support, please contact Club directly. Payment is due upon registration.



We will have a different age group of players each week at United DFC Academy and the schedule for July-August is shown below.
