What to bring: On training days, please have your player bring water (clearly labeled with their name), a size 4 soccer ball if you have one (clearly labeled with their name), shin guards (mandatory), socks that cover shin guards (recommended but not mandatory) and soccer cleats (recommended but not mandatory). Girls should have their hair pulled back. Please do not wear earrings, other jewelry, or watches to practice. Players should try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes before their session and 15 minutes early on game days so they are ready to have fun when our development sessions start. On hot days, bring plenty of extra water for pouring over heads.
NSSA’s U7-U8 Advanced Development Program offers ALL its young players entering our progam the opportunity to be exposed to a soccer environment that will enhance their skills and approach to the game. The objective of NSSA’s ADP training is to provide our young players with an environment that promotes learning, creative thinking, problem solving, skill development and love for the game in an age appropriate soccer atmosphere. The players will have a 3:1 ratio of engaging training to games, allowing for more touches on the ball and individual development.
The 3 main components of our age appropriate curriculum are:
2. Agility, balance and coordination
3. Soccer-based decision making – using games to teach format
Coach-directed, small-sided games, under differing conditions, promote the qualities that NSSA is seeking in their youth players by allowing for more touches on the ball, more creativity with the ball, and more individual problem solving within the game environment.
Each training night, ALL players will meet as a group for training instead of dividing as individual teams. Training is administered and conducted in a pool format by NSSA’s professional, licensed coaching staff. Pools are flexible, allowing players to train in environments that promote their own individual development needs.
Weekly training days are Monday & Wednesdays for boys & Girls
Training will be held at Roseville Area Middle School
Every other Wednesday each team will have game night. On this night you will play with your same team in one 50-minute game (two 25 minute halves).
Volunteer parent coaches will have the opportunity to observe and involve themselves during training nights, and will be responsible for leading their team on game nights.
Registration fee: $150 per player (Includes: NSSA Jersey)
