Our Beginnings


    USA North Soccer is both a club and a concept. Our roots stretch back to 1997 when a group of local players and teams wanted more training than what was available at that time in the Knoxville area. We began to realize that something more was needed in order to compete with areas like Atlanta, Nashville and Cincinnati. Our program developed from a Coerver - based Dutch soccer program inspired by legendary soccer coach Wiel Coerver (Voetbalschool Balcontrole Techniektraining). The North Area Soccer Training Academy began in 2007 and helped to furnish area clubs with many talented players and teams. The Academy became a stand-alone entity in the Fall of 2014 bringing greater opportunities to all players in North Knoxville and the surrounding communities.
