2021 Spring Registration
Nordonia Soccer Parents,
Welcome to NHSA. We hope to challenge your child this Spring and focus on the fundamentals necessary for your child to exceed their soccer goals, meet new friends, compete, and have fun! Below you will find information about this Spring. Please review this information and then complete your child's registration. For any potential new players to NHSA, we will be holding a tryout for the Boys on 3/26/21. Girls tryouts will be 3/19/21. This tryout will include all current NHSA players as well. There are a number of teams that are nearing the max number of players, so please be sure to participate in the tryouts, there is no guarantee that all players will be rostered this spring.
Please see details below.
At the time of the creation of this Spring NHSA registration, soccer has been approved to play actual games. We plan to play within all guidelines laid out by the Ohio Governor’s direction. This will be a fluid process, but it is great to see that we seem to be heading in the right direction. NHSA participants will be required to follow all of the hosting location’s COVID policies.
We will kick off the 2021 Spring practice season at the Ambassador’s Rothenbuhler Cheesemakers Arena. We will host one indoor practice in March to prep for the upcoming Spring session. This practice will include tryouts for any new players as well as to benchmark our current players. We are requesting that everyone interested in participating in Spring soccer with NHSA, participate in these indoor sessions held in March. As players are registered for Spring, available practice schedules will be provided via TeamSnap. Standard practices will begin April 5th and likely will be from 6-7:30. Time and locations are still TBD but will be communicated as the session nears. As in the past, games normally will be on Sunday and 2 practices per week (likely on Monday & Wednesday). We will continue to offer indoor practices at the Ambassador’s arena through the end of April. Boys and Girls will alternate Friday sessions, just as we have done throughout the winter sessions. See TeamSnap schedule for details after you have been registered and added to the roster.
$175 per child. Registration closes on April 15th. Please register at your earliest convenience to ensure we can properly roster all teams.
We have switched our uniform/soccer swag vendor to Soccer Village. Your child will need the new NHSA kit for Spring (excluding the 2006/07 girls team). For those that have already made this purchase, I am sure you have seen the difference and are happy with the new kits. Registration for the league and ordering uniforms are two separate processes. If you are new to the program, please contact Damon Ninham (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the process to order uniforms. For existing players, directions on how to place an order with SoccerVillage are available at: https://nordoniaknightsoccer.com/knights-soccer-apparel/nhsa-apparel/. Uniforms, NHSA Swag, and many other soccer needs are available within this resource. We can also shop in store by visiting Soccer Village in person at 1265 Som Center Rd, Mayfield Heights, OH 44124.
The cost for the new uniforms is $100 and the kit will include a primary jersey and shorts, alternate jersey and shorts, practice jersey, and socks. We are expecting participants to play with the provided kits, including wearing their practice jerseys to practice. The uniform numbers are NOT maintained by Soccer Village. Any active player that has played with us over the past year and had a uniform ordered from Frontline (our previous vendor), Soccer Village will have that player’s uniform number. Please, please, please, verify that Soccer Village is applying the correct number to the kit. NHSA or Soccer Village cannot provide credit for kits that have the wrong number.
For those that are interested in volunteering at a team level, there is an opportunity for an additional $75 credit for any parent that agrees to be a Team Mom/Dad/Rep. The person filling this role helps to administer and facilitate team activities, processes, and communications. This opportunity has increased the efficiency of each team, so thank you to all of you that have and will volunteer. We will continue to lean on our great soccer community to help with this program. Examples of these types of responsibilities included (note these are just examples):
- Gathering signatures for tournaments
- Reminding parents of upcoming events and setting TeamSnap availability
- Advocate for the organization
- Take and collect pictures and videos from parents and post on social media
- Generally being the point of contact for all things soccer for that particular team
We will review the best available options for tournaments this Spring and see what parents would like to do. We are currently targeting the Louisville Memorial. This tournament will be held in Louisville Ohio from May 29th & 30th. Once a final decision has been made on this tournament, more communication will follow. Tournaments are not currently included in the Spring registration dues.
Thank you for your participation and we look forward to the opportunity to witness your child's growth in soccer this Spring. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at NordoniaKnightSoccer@outlook.com.

NHSA Skills Development
"Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come." (Dwayne Johnson)
In an effort to continue to help our young players grow, we are introducing a Skills Development program to challenge your children to become better players. Although our team of volunteers try their best to provide our players the tools to gain a solid grasp of the game, to become great, the players have to take ownership of their love of the game. This initiative will hopefully drive that thought process and give those players that are eager to push their limits of the game an opportunity for direction while challenging them.
To begin the process of challenging your child's soccer skills, click on the "Learn More" button below, to be redirected to a Google Drive PDF of our Skills Development document.
