General Guidelines - Spring League, Tournament and Practice Commitment guidelines along with general commitments and fees are below. While not mandatory, guidelines below the chart are highly recommended to continue improving development and out of respect for your team members.
Most all NSC U9 and older teams for the Spring Season have been assembled and together from the previous fall season at the U9-U14 age groups. In most cases, this doesn't mean teams are full as there are still roster positions available on them, but space could be limited. Players registering for the spring season in November - January drastically increase their odds of finding a roster spot on an existing team versus those that register in February - April. If registration numbers are high enough at your child's age group and gender, a new team will be formed for the spring season. Those that do register for the spring season typically re-enroll come June for the following year of Fall & Spring team formations.
Micro Kickers and In-House Kickers are accepting registrations up into April. Those that register before April drastically increase their odds of being placed on a team for the Spring season as rosters and game schedules will be set in March. If there's room on any roster we will fit your child in.

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 practices. 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.
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 "club scheduled/fee collected" tournaments that the team is to participate in. If the team decides to do additional tournaments outside of the club scheduled tournaments this will be done on an a la carte basis.
