NSSA Recreational Program


HELP NEEDED!

All Recreational Coaches 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.  We will hold a Coach Orientation & Training Session Saturday, May 7. More details coming soon.

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 fiscal year and that you have completed online concussion and Safe Sports training. NSSA pays for this certification and the background check.

THERE'S STILL TIME TO REGISTER FOR RECREATIONAL LEAGUE!

U9-U12 RECREATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE

For 2021 NSSA offers a U9/U10 (3rd & 4th grade) and U11/U12 (5th & 6th gade). Recreational Soccer Leagues. No tryouts are required to join any NSSA recreational soccer team. Our recreational soccer program teaches basic skills and introduces your child to team play. Our goal is to provide fun for all skill levels.

Team Formation
Teams will be formed based on the number of participants and volunteer coaches.  We encourage you to invite your friends to join you in this fun summer experience. We will do our best to accommodate friend requests. We try very hard to create teams based on schools. Late registrations are less likely to be placed with friends. We hope to field a minimum of 6 teams in each league.
