NSSA "Street Soccer" Extravaganza

NSSA Street Soccer Extravaganza

All U7/8 and U9/10 competitive and recreational players are invited to come to Roseville Area Middle School on Sunday, July 27th for an afternoon filled with Street Soccer.

What is Street Soccer?

Despite the name, street soccer is played on grass fields, but is focused on playing small-sided games (3 v 3 or 4 v 4 to goals).  It is a way for players to get together and just play.  They will not be grouped in their current competitive or recreational teams, but will be randomly assigned teams during their timeframe of play to enhance the experience of playing and getting to know other players club-wide.

Purpose

To give both competitive and recreational players an opportunity to come together and play the game they love.  This event is also for those players considering playing competitive soccer (but not limited to) for the 2015 season.  There will be NSSA staff members running the event to answer any questions parents may have regarding the upcoming U9 and U10 try-outs.

*If you are currently a U10 player (going to be a U11 for Fall 2014), you are encouraged to come and play.  We would be happy to answer questions for the U11 try-outs as well.

Event Details

When: Sunday, July 27th

Times:      U7/8 Boys         1 – 2:30 pm

    U7/8 Girls        2:45 – 4:15 pm

    U9/10 Boys      4:30 – 6:00 pm

    U9/10 Girls      6:15 – 7:45 pm

Location: RAMS - West Fields - these are the upper fields in front of the school (Roseville Area Middle School)

Cost: FREE

NSSA asks you to show up with a soccer ball, shingaurds, cleats and water.  The staff will run players through a quick technical warm-up with the ball and then jump right into playing.  Parents are encouraged to stick around and cheer their players on.

Introduction to the NSSA Recreational Soccer 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.

Practices generally begin in late April or early May, and games begin in mid-May. This year, NSSA has also reorganizing our youngest age group to provide a age group wide, fun learning experience.  Details of this program will be posted here in the next few weeks. 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!

Program Details

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:

1. Technical

2. Agility, balance and coordination

3. Soccer-based decision making – using games to teach format

Small-Sided Games

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.

Training

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

Location

Training will be held at Roseville Area Middle School

Game Night

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).

Coaches

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)
