CONGRATULATIONS

Nordonia Soccer Community,

Please take a moment to congratulate our 2008/09 Girls NHSA Soccer team.  They participated in OHTSL's Annual Travel Cup tournament and walked away with some well-deserved hardware.  Through 4 games, the girls gave up 1 goal, with a goal differential of 11.  Great job girls!!

Winter Registration

NHSA Families,

Unfortunately, winter is right around the corner.  Just because its winter in Ohio, does not mean we cannot continue to train and play soccer.  NHSA is happy to announce a winter option once again.  We hope to challenge your child this Winter and focus on the fundamentals necessary for your child to exceed their soccer goals, meet new friends, compete, and have fun!

Please see details about Winter Session 1 below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- COVID -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NHSA participants will be required to follow all of the hosting location’s COVID policies.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Dates -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As players are registered for Winter, available practice schedules will be provided via TeamSnap. Winter practices will begin October 28th and our practice window for the entire program will be from 7 - 10 on Friday nights at the Rothenbuhler Arena.  I know Friday's are not ideal, but this is also why the field team is the only time AFC is willing to share field time with us.  Games will likely be at NC Hudson for session 1. Some may play futsal but that will be up to the individual teams to make that decision at the coach/team manager level. We are still working through the practice lengths and exact times, but we plan for practice times to be between an hour to hour and 15 minutes.  See TeamSnap schedule for details after you have been registered and added to the roster.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Registration Cost -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$185 per child for the per session option.  Unlike the annual option, this only covers the games and practices.  If tournaments are entered, those will be on a per tournament basis. It is possible that some teams may choose to play futsal within the Great Lakes Futsal league. If a team does decide to participate in that league for one of the sessions. The cost of registration will be a bit higher. That will be on a team-by-team basis, so an actual amount is not currently available.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Uniforms -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our vendor for our soccer apparel is Soccer Village.  I think most players have transitioned to the new Soccer Village kits, if your child is wearing the older kit, the new kit will need purchased.  Registration for the league and ordering uniforms are two separate processes. If you are new to the program, please contact Damon Ninham (nordoniaknightsoccer@outlook.com) 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.  Mention you play for NHSA and be sure to ask for the discount that comes with our organization.
The cost for the new uniforms is $125 and the kit will include a primary jersey and shorts, alternate jersey and shorts, practice shirt, 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 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/Soccer Village will not provide credit for kits that have the wrong number.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Volunteers -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are always looking for volunteers, especially in our younger teams, if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Damon at NordoniaKnightSoccer@Outlook.com.  These opportunities increase the efficiency of each team, so thank you to all of you that have or 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
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Tournaments -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tournaments have not been identified to this point.  We will look to have each team play in one tournament at some point throughout the winter.  In the event that the team ends up not having enough participants, your child's team may not have the chance to play in a tournament.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Playing Time -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NHSA is a travel level program.  NHSA's goal is to prepare our players for HS soccer.  Equal playing time is not guaranteed.  Our coaches will continue to evaluate players by their practice and game time experience.   NHSA does offer a Training only option for individuals that may not be quite ready for playing on a team but want to continue to grow their soccer skills.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- THANK YOU !! -
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for your participation and we look forward to the opportunity to witness your child's growth in soccer this Winter. 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.
