From the Desk of the DOC

 

Dear Titans,

It has been a fantastic Fall Season for our teams and club in general with multiple division titles secured and all teams representing NPSA to a high standard on and off the field!

Developing competitive teams and players is part of our mission and while winning at all costs isn’t our philosophy, we do believe that player development and winning are not mutually exclusive ideas. Our success shows that we can and are developing players, which is our primary objective.

A special mention must go to our
B03 Navy Bellevue team as their success in winning the Superleague 1 Division title represents a milestone for our club. They are the first team in our short history to win the top division in the PSPL and they will compete in the Champions League in 2017 as a result. A truly remarkable achievement from a talented group of players.

In addition to our title winners, we also had multiple teams that achieved 2nd place finishes in their respective divisions which again demonstrates the continued progress and strength within our club at various age groups.

It is exciting times for NPSA right now with our program constantly evolving to better serve you, our members. The following are the main highlights that you need to be aware of;

  • The addition of Erik Oman as our Girls Director and Lee Hitchen as our College Program Director
  • The introduction of the first female-specific training program, TITAN XX
  • The creation of our College Pathway program
  • A new Website and Registration system to ensure a quality customer service experience

Looking ahead to Spring Season, the upcoming Spring Season Training Camp will be a great opportunity to welcome new players into our program alongside our returning players and form Titan Teams from U8-U15 that will represent our club in the PSPL Spring League and WA Cup competitions.

Word of mouth has been very successful for our program and I personally believe strongly in this form of marketing as it is a huge compliment every time one of our members puts their name to our club. I appreciate all of you who take the time to recommend NPSA to friends and family and would ask that you continue to do so.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing the players out on the field again very soon!

Together Each Achieves More

Tryouts the NPSA way at our Spring Season Training Camp!

 

We recognize that tryouts tend to be very stressful for everyone involved and we find that players often cannot play to their best ability.

This year we're holding our tryouts early and in a  training camp format that allows the players to relax and express themselves with more freedom than the traditional tryout model. It also enables our professional coaching staff to work closely with each age group and assess each players current stage of development with more accuracy.

The goal is to place the players on a team that will provide the right environment for them to develop their abilities, understanding and passion for the game.

We're offering the training camps in 2 locations - Bellevue & Mercer Island - and they open to players born between 2009 and 2002.

The full schedule for both locations is detailed on our website. Please register for the location you want your child to be placed and attend only those sessions.

And remember, your friends are encouraged to attend with you. If you have questions about the camp, we've put together a handy frequently asked questions page on the site too.

TITAN XX - The First Female Specific Soccer Training Program

 

At NPSA we strive to make all our players the best they can be.
Titan XX is about giving our girls their own identity within our program and empowering them to blaze their own trail!

 

Just by being on an NPSA girls team, your daughter will receive the following benefits, in addition to our standard team training program, over the course of the season;

  • Weekly Academy-Style Training Sessions run by the Titan XX Director, Erik Oman
  • Fitness Program including Injury-Prevention
  • Mentor Program for our older players to develop leadership skills and support our younger players
  • Individual Facebook page and Instagram account to give more exposure and interaction between our girl’s teams
  • Social Events to create a real community on our girl’s side
  • Guest appearances from successful players and coaches in the women’s game
  • AND at no additional cost to our members

Such an important program requires someone with superior experience and knowledge of the female game at all levels.

 

Given this, we have recruited the very best in Erik Oman. Erik has over 25 years of coaching experience and a resume that is second to none in the State of Washington. He is an NSCAA Coaching Instructor and holds a USSF 'A' License and a US Soccer National Youth License. Erik has also coached at the Division 1 College-level for 17 years working with multiple female teams. In addition to his role with NPSA, Erik is currently the Technical Director of the PSPL Academy working with the best young female players in the State.


Bringing in a Director of Erik's stature and reputation demonstrates our commitment to providing our female players from U8-U19 the very best program and pathway to the College level.


It's  an exciting time to be a female youth soccer player at NPSA and definitely something to tell your friends about to drive interest and make all our female age groups stronger!

 

Give YOUR daughter the opportunity to be a part of the Titan XX program, and start with Spring Training.
