Fall 2019 marked the inaugural season for our newest program within our rapidly growing family club. We were so excited to be able to offer professional coaching for players aged 7-10 for the first time in club history. The season of 19/20 will be a memorable year to look back on in years to come, and we are thrilled to announce that next season will be even better.

Although we had a fantastic first season, we recognize that we can always improve. We have listened to your feedback and moving forward will have multiple match-day experiences for all our players. All players want to do is play, and we believe moving forward we can provide the perfect combination of technical training, complimented with a healthy amount of game situations. Each season will now include:

(i) Multiple Inter club Matches, (ii) External Local Friendlies, (iii) x1 CCL Festival.

Our Next Generation Shield program will be the first training that Asheville Shield will provide for our players. The aim of the program is to teach our young players how to play football in all aspects. The program will be primarily focused on developing each players’ technical ability while developing their tactical awareness. We will immerse our players in a complete learning environment. We will start preparing young kids to love the sport and follow developed international leagues. Football is a worldwide sport that is growing immensely within our country, with our Next Generation Shield program we will be giving our player their first taste of great coaching. The Next Generation Shield will include high level coaching, great facilities, and an all-round fantastic learning environment.
