"Our family was looking for an alternative club to what is already available to Kirkland parents - one that focused on player development on multiple levels and the fun aspect of playing soccer. We found what we were looking for at NPSA 3 years ago and we are still very happy with our choice." - Melanie R.
Does anyone love soccer as much as Kirkland kids and parent? Probably not.
Soccer may be the second most popular sport in the United States, but it’s unquestionably the number one in Kirkland.
Soccer is challenging non-stop sport where the kids are the ones who make the decisions on the field. Soccer requires fast thinking and plenty of running. There isn’t time to get bored.
Kirkland’s love for soccer is why an increasing number of Kirkland parents send their children to Nowland Premier Soccer Academy (NPSA). Academy founder Adam Nowland bring the energy and love of the game that parents appreciate. NPSA is:
NPSA founder Adam Nowland, a retired British soccer professional, learned about the value of world-class instruction at the of age 12 when he was coached at the Liverpool FC Center of Excellence by Steve Heighway, one of Liverpool’s greatest players. “Every child should have the opportunity to good coaching and a quality soccer experience,” Nowland says. “It is an essential part of any player’s development because in order for them to be an effective part of a team they first need to be competent and confident in their abilities as an individual.”
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?
