General Guidelines - Tournament, Practice Commitment guidelines along with general commitments and fees are at the bottom of this page. While not mandatory, guidelines they are highly recommended to continue improving development and out of respect for your team members.
Once a player/family makes the commitment to join any team at NSC, all players/families on the team are obligated to the team fees for all tournaments that the team is schedule to participate in.
Practices, Games, and Tournament Commitment
NSC is all about promoting and encouraging players to participate in other sports and activities. This provides other learning opportunities and can provide balance or change of pace from one activity to the next. We ask that NSC members take into consideration that soccer is a team sport and it takes a commitment from everyone on the team to be at as many practices as possible to provide the consistency NSC is looking to transition from practices into team league games and tournaments on the weekend.
Practices are either on Monday and Wednesday's or Tuesday and Thursday's in most cases. NSC asks that each team and team member classify Wednesday and Thursday as the primary day that all players should attend. The reasoning for this is so that all team members can be on the same page leading into weekend games. If there is a day that any team member is going to have to miss practice it would be the secondary day (Monday or Tuesday). Out of respect for NSC coaches and any other organization's coaches or teachers, NSC also asks that you don't leave your team practice during the middle of the session to try and accommodate both. As many sport leagues, would agree, NSC would rather have you participate fully vs only attending half the session. Arriving or leaving 15 minutes late or early is acceptable, leaving or arriving in the middle of practice, disrupts the session that is already in process.
Other Sports - Phasing in and out of each soccer season
NSC asks that families take into consideration the time of year in which your child is participating in another sport or activity. With all respect to the other activity or sport, we ask that you finish that season out with that sport until it has completed. Once it as completed, soccer becomes your primary sport until your season has finished completely. You can join other sports or activities while in the same season as soccer, however, we ask that they become secondary until the soccer season finishes out and then they can become the primary. Last minute unavailability for a game or tournament to partake in what NSC would consider the secondary sport or activity is unacceptable.
While this a guideline that we ask our members to follow, it is NOT a policy and we do understand that circumstances do arise. All we ask is that you communicate with your coach and manager well ahead of time and not surprise them the day of or just before of what is going on.
