NSA Coaching

Who Are the Coaches?

More often than not they are volunteer parents along with College and High School soccer players to assist. Many of these parents began their coaching "career" with little to no soccer experience and have developed into good coaches.

So if you are interested in Coaching, either an In-House or Traveling team, please let us know.  There will be a box to check at time of registration, or give one of our Coordinators a call.

Concussion Training Mandatory for All Coaches and Referees

If you are a Coach, Referee, or even Team Manager, please access the following link to take the concussion training ASAP:

All Adult Volunteers must complete the background check

In order to comply with MYSA risk management requirements any adult that works with youth players must complete the online background check including coaches, assistant coaches, team managers/coordinators and NSA board members.  Follow the instructions below to complete a background check.


Coaching and Player Development

This year, we’re continuing our focus on recruiting and training parents for coaching as well as providing age appropriate skills development led by non-parent coaches.   We will be hosting several MYSA Coaching Clinics to assist in training those of you that want to coach, or simply want to learn more about soccer.

We'll have a training session at the beginning of the season along with a packet full of sample drills for new coaches. We hope these actions help you coach your child to have fun with soccer.

In the meantime, there are several courses available in MN.  Please refer to the MYSA website for details.
