NSA Traveling Families,
Registration for the spring/summer 2023 traveling soccer season is now open!
ABOUT THE SPRING/SUMMER SEASON
Spring/summer traveling teams are available for boys and girls in the U10-U18 age groups. Teams typically practice 2-3 times per week, beginning in April, weather permitting. Game play begins in early May and continues until sometime in July, depending on how far the team advances. Teams usually play one game per week for 10-12 total games per season. The Northfield Soccer Association is part of theSouthern Minnesota Soccer League, and our teams travel and host teams from otherSMSL clubs.
Traveling registration is open now and closes on February 1, 2023. Teams will be formed immediately after registration closes, so please be sure to sign up on time. Depending on registration numbers, player evaluations may need to be held in order to group players into teams based on ability. Age groups that require an evaluation will be posted on the NSA website, and players will be notified via email.
The 2023 traveling season is open to players born in 2013 or earlier. Fees differ by age:
U10 (2013 birth year), U11 (2012 birth year) and U12 (2011 birth year): $475
U13 and older (2010 birth year – 2005 birth year): $500
Traveling fees may be paid in full or in three installments, with one-third of the payment due at the time of registration, one-third due on January 31, 2023, and the remaining balance due on March 31, 2023. You will select your preferred payment schedule at the time of registration.
Scholarships are available. Please contact Tammy Seymour at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or request a scholarship. Scholarship recipients do not have to make any copayments at the time of registration.
Traveling fees do not include uniform costs. All players must own a traveling game uniform kit. Goalkeeper kits are optional. We will use our current uniform kit for the 2023 season. Players new to traveling soccer will need to purchase a traveling game uniform kit. The cost for the standard traveling game kit is $85. Lower uniform fees are available for scholarship players. If you are a scholarship recipient, contact Tammy Seymour at email@example.com to place your uniform order to receive the scholarship discount. All uniform orders must be placed by March 1, 2023.
Northfield Soccer Association is an almost entirely volunteer-run organization and the time and talents of many individuals is vital in order to maintain day-to-day operations. As such, we will again require a minimum of 4 service hours per family per summer season. The fee to opt out of the service requirement will be $200 and is in line with other youth sports organizations in Northfield. This can be paid at the time of registration. We will be following up with opportunities to satisfy the service requirement, but we are always in need of team coaches & managers as well as board members.
Thank you for your continued support of and participation in our Northfield Soccer Association programming. Please feel free to reach out to Tammy at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We’ll see you on the pitch!
