Another Example of NCFC’s Pathway to the Pros Strategy

These signings are another example of NCFC’s “Path to the Pros” strategy at work. The NCFC Youth Program accommodates and provides pathways for players at all levels of interest and ability.

Last week, two former NCFC Academy products who currently play for North Carolina FC: Cole Frame and Nick Holliday joined Head Coach John Bradford on an informative webinar for NCFC Youth parents to speak about their journey to the pros. You can watch the recording of this presentation below:
