NHCA Kids’ & Youth Outdoor Soccer 2017

PHOTO WEEK 

Photo Week for all U4-U18 players is May 8th-10th at Harvest Hills Alliance Church. Please visit the Photo Week page for the schedule, FAQs and more. 



For the 2017 Outdoor season, the NHCA is proud to be working with SoccerTech to provide a better program for child (U4-U12) and youth (U14-U18) players in the Northern Hills. 

SoccerTech (a non-profit business) still delivers the same grassroots, fun, community soccer that the NHCA has provided in years past, but with skill development and community values as a core principle.

Northern Hills Community Soccer still provides a fun and safe environment for children ages 3-17 to enjoy the beautiful game of soccer.  The emphasis is on participation, learning and acquiring both soccer and life skills, including a lifelong love of the game. We encourage involvement in your child’s development and getting involved in your community, through parental volunteering. Providing great value, with fields conveniently located within the Northern Hills communities, we have a program that is perfect for your child.

Registration is now closed.

 


The soccer season for U4-U12 starts May 1st. We’ve had a few hiccups with our new registration system along the way, but everything will be ready to go from Monday, May 1st.

If you haven’t heard from your coach yet, please check your age group below and turn up at the field on your first night (during the first week of May) to meet your team and be issued with your jersey. 

A Welcome Group Volunteer will be at each field in a green NHCA shirt, with maps and team lists, directing players and teams which pitch on the field to go to.

Please visit the NHCA Soccer site for information about the program, maps of fields and schedules, and for the new registration information and link (you will not be able to register until February 1st). Please take time to read through the new program information.

Financial Assistance
We believe that every child should have access to soccer in our community. There are a couple of programs to help those in financial hardship:

In-person registration is available in February on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10 AM – 2 PM, and Saturdays 12-2 PM, for:

  • Kidsport & Jumpstart applicants (please see the links above for the information/items you will need to bring with you in order to apply)
  • Payments by CASH/DEBIT only (please register online if paying by credit card)
  • Save time: download the Kids’ Outdoor Soccer 2017 registration form, fill it in and bring it with you

What’s New?

The NHCA has a new membership and registration system:

  • If you have not already done so, you will need to set up a user profile and add your children and other family members, before you register your children for soccer. Please ensure you have added your family members to your profile (download this handy guide if you need help to do this) and extended your membership to them before trying to register. Screenshots for how to extend your membership are available on our Membership page.
  • For a step by step guide for registering for programs in the new system, please visit the “NHCA Registration System How To Guide” page.

 

The partnership with SoccerTech brings more benefits to players:

  • New, U5 age group: By providing U4, U5 and U6 leagues, the game can be better tailored to developing the skills and abilities of children between 3-5.
  • Professional tech instruction and support for volunteer coaches: No matter your skill level, you can feel confident that you will be able to coach your child’s team better after instruction from SoccerTech’s experienced, certified and licensed coaches.
  • Peer mentoring: SoccerTech believe in peer influence through junior coaching. Highly-trained, skilled and educated young players assist in their program as junior coaches and develop a core relationship with young players. This positive peer pressure has created success wherever their program has been implemented.
  • Access to year-round soccer: Through SoccerTech, the NHCA is able to offer access to an indoor program, soccer camps and more. If your kids are soccer crazy, there’s no more waiting until next year – they can participate all year round!
