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 created a young player development program to lead in the growth of our community’s 5 to 8 year olds. 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. This program is designed to enhance your child's NSSA soccer experience and will NOT conflict with league play or teams.
