Northville Soccer is an all volunteer organization running soccer development since 1973.

Our recreational program is one of the best in Michigan. We were one of the first clubs to instill small sided games for players U8 and younger. U by the way means under.

Each month we have a coaching education hour. Times and place will be in the “Coach’s Column of the Home Page.

 

 

NSA offers three types of soccer: Recreational, Michigan Rush and Rush Jr. Academy.

Our recreational has two seasons, Fall and Spring and is open to any first time players or multi-sport athlete.

Michigan Rush (U8 and older players) starts with tryouts once a year, the third Saturday in June. Our Northville branch has some of the highest trained and licensed coaches in the state of Michigan. It is a full year commitment with indoor training and games. Development is their focus.

 

Rush Jr. Academy is a year round program for our U5, U6 and U7-8 boys and girls that is coached and trained by very qualified staff and is on a first come first served bases. We are very proud of our staff and their commitment to developing youth players. It is the best program in the state. More information about Michigan Rush and Rush Jr. can be found at www.MichiganRush.com .

Wait Listed Player’s and other refunds will be processed (1) month after start of season.

NSA will make every attempt possible to place your son or daughter on a team. Registrations close to start of season sometime can results in the wait listing of the player.

U9 WSSL and older teams, submission of these teams takes place 6 week prior to start of season, limiting us from adding additional teams.

When buying a ball look for balls made of polyurethanes or PU, and remember to purchase a ball pump. Ball Size: U4 through U8 a size 3, U9 through U12 a size 4 and size 5 for all older teams.

 

Coaching as a volunteer:

“Coaching is a very rewarding experience”  

Recreational Soccer is only possible with volunteer parent coaches.  If we are short coaches we will be calling everyone on the formed team. U6 and under has practice and game at the same time once a week. U7 and U8 consist of a game and separate practice one hour each week. U9 and older is normally two practices each week for an hour and one game. If you volunteer as a coach, NSA directors of coaching will help you with a practice plans and offer game strategies. Our monthly coach’s meetings we go over the basics to the specifics of the current methodologies of coaching.  Your commitment is one to Three hours a week for our 8 week season. We ask you as a coach to make this first and foremost fun for your players. A single focus on winning will turn players off to soccer. It is about the individual development achievements that coach MUST nurture in each and every player.

 If you wish to coach:

Coach, or if you are volunteering your spouse, please use a phone and email you or they will use on a daily bases.  

Volunteer coach’s requirements   - WE NEED YOU!

All volunteer coaches are required to complete a Got Sports background check ($7.50), concussion certificate and Safe Sports. Please use the email and mobile number you wish to be contacted as the Head or Assistant Coach.  When volunteering your spouse, also let him or her know they have been volunteered ;-), please make him or her aware of the requirements below.

 

Coaching is a very rewarding experience.  

NSA will help with you learn the game and guide you on how to coach. We would not be able to run a program this large without our volunteers. Our concern is with the children. Coaching is much different than what you would expect. Even, if you have played at high levels, some of the best players make the least effect coaches, think of it this way playing versus teaching, two very different skills. Professional coaches never stop learning. No matter what you know, there is still more to learn. I’m sure you have heard the phrase, “You do not know what you do not know”, the next stage of this is, “Knowing what you do not know”. As a coach, please do your best to attend our monthly meetings (held on the first Tuesday of each month), where you will pickup the tips, lingo and tricks that will make you an effective and fun coach.

 

A successful coach is one who has: a team that returns each season, players that were taught new skills, made if fun and kept them challenged without being to difficult.
