Consistent with our Mission Statement, Northfield Soccer Association’s (NSA) Board of Directors and staff are committed to programs that focus on providing a positive soccer environment for all players, parents, coaches, team managers, officials, and fans.
Motivated by this commitment, the NSA is partnering with the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) to provide a research-based, educational program called Parents and Coaches Together (PACT).
PACT is designed to help coaches and parents create a positive environment for everyone involved that builds character and thus creates "champions" on and off the field. The value of PACT goes beyond what any individual family may or may not feel they have gained; the real value is what it brings to the club as a whole, the cohesiveness, the commonality of purpose and focus, and the means to make good things happen to make us a better club.
Our first PACT Coaches seminar will be held in Northfield on Thursday 2/28. All Coaches will be required to attend a PACT Seminar in order to receive their MYSA Coaches Pass.
We will update the website and send notification once the location and time are confirmed. Note, there are addtional PACT Seminars schedulded at various locations around the South Metro area.
We will also host a Parent Seminar in Northfield before the start of the season.
