Soccer For All Program (U11 & U12)

NWSC’s Soccer For All Program for U11 and U12 is built around the principles of Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) and is an extension of NWSC’s Making Progress Program (u8 – U10).

The Soccer for All Program (U11 & U12) continues to focus on a positive experience learning the game in an age appropriate educational setting. By adopting the NWSC-WAY at these ages and stages of development players will prepare for the full sided game in the next phase of Soccer For All! NWSC technical coaches and age group coordinators will be in charge of organizing, including the evaluation for Select teams as well as balanced Community teams, with each team having a designated volunteer coach.

Registration is mandatory. No unregistered players will be allowed to participate. Anyone wishing to make special arrangements can contact the Registrar or Club Manager. Technical Directors and/or coaches will NOT accept registration at the field, nor will they collect any registration fees.

Soccer for All Program (U11-U12 Community)

For the U11-U12 boys and girls community program, teams are balanced to represent NWSC against opposing balanced community teams.  Each team will play in scheduled 8v8 matches held on Saturday’s for boys and Sunday’s for girls.  The community teams will have a base train to play ratio of 2:1 (3:1 if they choose to participate in the Skill Enhancement Program).
