To simplify our competitive structure, NSSA will have two designations for teams going forward: Premier and Academy.

Academy Teams

  • The top-tier teams in the competitive program 
  • Will compete in advanced and elite level leagues (TCSL National or MYSA League One, for example)
  • If there are multiple academy teams at an age level, they will be designated "Academy-1" or "Academy-2"

Select Teams

  • Our developmental level of the competitive program
  • New opportunities to train up a level with more advanced teams
  • Will compete in intermediate level competitive leagues (TCSL Cities or State for example)
  • If there are multiple "select" teams within our club, they will be designated "Select-1" or "Select-2"
