Young players (U5-U8) are at an ideal intellectual and physical stage to learn and retain both techniques and foundational tactical ideas for soccer. NSSA has a dynamite young player development program to lead in the growth of our community’s 5 to 8 year old players.
Players will be taught technical and tactical ideas in an engaging, challenging and exciting environment. A typical session will consist of 15 minutes of technical training, 15 minutes of foundational, tactical ideas and 30 minutes of free-play overseen and enhanced by NSSA’s professional training staff. The program will provide an arena that allows for a player to take hundreds of touches on the ball each week and face situations where they will be challenged to make decisions.
