NSSA Recreational Program

RECREATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR U9 - U13 AGE GROUPS

NSSA offers recreational soccer programs for boys and girls during the summer soccer season. Teams are formed in late April following the registration period that opens in February and ends in mid-April. No tryouts are required to join any NSSA recreational soccer team. For 2018 we will offer recreational leagues for boys and girls, U9/10 and U11/12/13. All levels of experience are welcome to NSSA Recreational Soccer! NNSSA recreational soccer teaches basic skills and introduces your child to team play. Our goal is to provide fun for all skill levels.

LOOKING FOR U3 - U8 SOCCER PROGRAMMING?
NSSA offers an innovative developmental program, the STORM Jr. Academy for U3-U6 or U7/U8 youth soccer players. NSSA professional training staff will provide foundational and tactical skill development in an engaging and challenging environment. Please visit our STORM JR. ACADEMY DEVELOPMENT PAGE for additional details and registration information.

Financial Assistance

NSSA is committed to providing quality youth soccer that is accessible to everyone. Financial Assistance for the Recreational program applies to registration fees (which includes uniform expense). For more information, please visit our Financial Assistance page.

HELP NEEDED!

All Recreational coaches and assistants are volunteers.

 We can only form teams when enough volunteers step forward to coach. A successful season requires a minimum of 4 teams for each age group and gender.

NSSA provides training for coaches – no experience is necessary.  During the first week of practice, NSSA will provide Club training staff to help run practices to provide a foundation for coaches in setting up effective training sessions.

We need parents to volunteer as you complete your child's registration online. The only requirements are that you pass a background check during the most recent MYSA fiscal year and that you have completed online concussion training (approx. 30-60 minutes) in the past 3 years.
