NHSA Annual Fundraiser

Nordonia Soccer Parents,

Please review the following information on our annual fundraiser. Our annual fundraiser date/time has been set for 7-9pm on February 22nd, 2020 at Scoreboards. Tickets for the event are $25 per ticket and will be able to be purchased in advance (see below and with a paper ticket) and in-person the day of the event. Admission will include pizza, wings, draft beer, wine, and many raffle opportunities.  This has been a fun night in the past and we expect the same this year!

 

The purpose of our annual fundraiser is two-fold: 1) Provide training, experiences, and equipment to our players and our growing organization, and 2) Keep costs as low as possible. This year, for example, fundraising proceeds went towards the purchase of 2 sets of goals, a training net, shirts for tournament participants, field maintenance equipment/paint, and various other fixed expenses. We also added an additional hour of training at Ambassador’s Rothenbuhler Cheesemaker’s Arena for 22 weeks, which cost the organization over $11,000. We do these things because we believe that the investment in the equipment and training time makes our organization stronger and provides a better experience for our players, and a successful annual fundraiser is key to doing exactly that.

 

NHSA is suggesting that each player be responsible for selling a minimum of 2 tickets ($50 total value) or collect $50 worth of donations that can be used in a basket that will be raffled off at the fundraiser. Our preference is to have each player sell 2 tickets to get more people to the fundraiser event, but we realize that may not be possible (due to financial or schedule constraints), which is why we will gladly accept donations to be included in a raffle basket. Fundraising is not our favorite activity, and we realize that asking friends or family members to purchase tickets or donate to our cause may be uncomfortable but having everyone’s participation in this event is key.

 

We are a family, a soccer family, so getting to know each other on and off the field will strengthen our family, create shared ownership, and establish a bond that hopefully grows through our children’s eventual high school - and beyond! - careers. Thank you so much for everyone’s support and I look forward to this event and the opportunities this event will provide our program!

Winter Training

We apologize for not being able to provide an indoor soccer option but we will continue to focus on the growth of our young players.  Prepping for the spring is key.  We will focus on the growth of our young players fundamentals and supporting them with drills and scrimmaging opportunities.  Please see the TRAINING ONLY option below.

Spring

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!
Dates: Early April through early June, with games normally on the weekends and 2 practices per week (likely on Monday and Wednesday)
Cost: $125 per child if registered before February 24th, registrations February 24th or later will be $150. Registration for Spring session will close on March 14th and we will not accept any players after that date, unless they have made alternate arrangements with a member of the NHSA board.
- For those parents who have multiple kids playing, we will again offer a $25 discount, contact me for the discount code to enter during registration.
Uniforms: Registration for the league and ordering uniforms are two separate processes. If you are new to the program, please register and order your uniform as early as possible, this will allow for the printing and delivery of your player’s new uniform. Uniforms, and other NHSA soccer spirit gear, can be ordered by clicking on the following hyperlink: NHSA Apparel
When you register, you will need to provide a uniform number. For new players, available uniform numbers can be viewed by clicking on the following hyperlink: Uniform Number Availability
The cost for the new uniforms is $80 and the kit will include a primary jersey, alternate jersey, practice jersey, uniform shorts, and socks. We are expecting participants to play with the provided kits, including wearing their practice jerseys to practice.
Volunteers: For those that are interested in volunteering at a team level, there is an opportunity for an additional $50 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. We piloted this last fall with tremendous success, and we will continue to lean on our greater 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
Tournament: We will review the best available options for tournaments this spring and see what parents would like to do.  It sounds like some would like to play in the MIST where others have mentioned that it would be nice to go a few hours away to provide the players with a chance to make memories over an entire tournament.
Please choose the correct gender specific outdoor registration option below.
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.
