About the NSSA Recreational Program

NSSA offers recreational soccer programs for boys and girls in grades 1 through 12 (ages U7 to U18) during the summer soccer season. Teams are formed in March following the registration period that opens in January and ends in late February (to be ensured placement on a team). We group ages together by grades to form separate leagues for boys and girls as follows: Grades 1 & 2 (U7/U8), Grades 3 & 4 (U9/U10), Grades 5 & 6 (U11/U12),  Grades 7 & 8 (U13/U14),  and Grades 9 thru 12 (U15-U18) leagues. The season generally ends in the last two weeks of July, and includes 8 to 10 league games and playoffs.

No tryouts are required to join any NSSA recreational soccer team. All levels of experience are welcome to NSSA Recreational Soccer!

Boys Recreational Director Needed
Job Description / Responsibilities & Structure
NSSA Seeks a Boys Recreational Director for the 2015 Season. The qualities the Boys Recreational Director would ideally possess are: strong leadership, organizational and communication skills, as well as a current knowledge of computer applications.  A working knowledge of our Recreational Programs would be desirable.  The primary responsibilities of this position include:

1. Oversight of the promotional and registration process

2. Recruitment of age group coordinators and coaches,

3. Oversight of the recreational team formation process (based on NSSA guidelines),

4.  Development of practice and game schedules.  (Scheduling assistance is available.) 

This position works very closely with the Girl’s Recreational Director, as well as other NSSA Board and Committee members, i.e to coordinate field requirements, uniforms, and equipment needs.  There is a lot of support available to help the new recreational director get started and up to speed.

Because we fully understand the hesitancy of individuals to dedicate the time required for this type of position, we are very open to a plan that would have two or three co-leaders that would take a team approach.  If this can be arranged, the Board will provide an experienced “mentor” to oversee and support that team throughout the current season. 

If you share our passion to maintain and build the recreation boys program or know someone who might be interested, please email president@nssasoccer.org.
