About Us

NEXTGEN SPORTS ACADEMY, INC. is an organization focused on developing youth soccer skills in the Natick, Massachusetts, area. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for all sports.

How We Started

Our founders, Florina Uyar and her husband, Haluk, came from different sports backgrounds: she played volleyball; he played soccer. However, they wanted their kids to get involved in sports. This led to community involvement and eventually the creation of our youth volleyball and youth soccer programs.

Founder & Director of Coaching - Haluk Uyar

Haluk played semi-professionally back in Turkey, but had to end his career early due to injury. His experience spans every level, beginning to end, and he has had the pleasure of working with some great coaches. Now, he has the pleasure of sharing his knowledge and passion for this sport with a new generation of young athletes. I am currently working for New England Revolution Soccer Club as an academy coach as well.
