"Our soccer journey before we found the NPSA Titans was a very frustrating one. Our children spent way too much time on the bench vs playing and learning the game, and received substandard coaching. Since we have found NPSA, they have developed tremendously, race out the door to practice and relish being with their peers playing the game." - Tina C.
Every Bellevue soccer parent has different reasons for sending their child to NPSA. For some, it is the care and attention of the coaching staff. For others, it’s the energy and love of the game that founder Adam Nowland brings to the Academy. Here are some of the key reasons we hear:
Nowland’s 12-year career as a midfielder was characterized by his solid work ethic, speed and finesse. He turned professional at the age of 17 in Blackpool and he later went on to play for West Ham United and Nottingham Forest before coming to the United States to play for FC Tampa Bay.

At NPSA, we believe in developing Bellevue players the right way from the very beginning. We stay true to our mission of providing youth soccer development for all player levels by raising coaching standards and ultimately player advancement through professional coaching education in an engaging training environment. As soon as a player has an interest in the game or wants to be introduced to the game, we strive 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. Where is the consistency?
