At NPSA we believe in developing players the right way from the very beginning. As soon as a player has an interest in the game or wants to be introduced to the game, we want to provide the age appropriate program to allow all players to flourish and develop as they grow and age. What we see today is a fragmented landscape for soccer development. People go one place for a certain type of training and then elsewhere for another type of training. This leads to inconsistency in both message and philosophy leading to confusion in players and often in parents. One coach says one thing and the next coach will stress something different.
Given this, NPSA has developed the player pathway to deliver consistency in player development from the very beginning. All our programs are age appropriate and are taught with a high level of awareness of the particular stage of development of each child. Additionally, our programs become more focused and commitment oriented as they progress.
The ultimate goal of NPSA is to be as successful as possible. What does success look like? Well, we believe it means the marriage of emphatic player development and winning, raising the standards of players and coaches, with the end goal of providing the opportunity and support to all our players to go on to play at the next level, intercollegiate competition.
The NPSA player pathway was developed with all this in mind. The very best in coaching, development, and progressively challenging play to ultimately provide our players with the ability to play college soccer.
We believe in our philosophy and player pathway. We believe it will allow all our players to realize their dreams of playing soccer at the highest level they wish to attain.
