Player Information

The NSC program currently houses the U13-U18 boys and girls age groups for select soccer play.  Due to the shortened length of our season (6 months) many of our players enjoy other activities such as basketball, volleyball, baseball/softball, track, gymnastics and many others. 

Our list of Frequently Asked Questions may also help you understand more about the NSC Program.

Player Rights

Once an offer for a roster spot is made and a player accepts, the NSC Program guarantees certain player rights. Players have a right to:

  • Instruction from licensed coaches
  • Have all supervision provided by adults cleared through the Washington State Risk Management program
  • Be treated with respect in an environment conducive to learning and growing soccer skills
  • Playing time equivalent to 40% over the course of the season for those players who participate in at least 80% of all team events

 


 

 

Player Responsibilities

Parents/players must also agree to have certain responsibilities to the program, coaches and team. Those responsibilities include:

  • To refrain from derisive and/or derogatory comments about teams, teammates or coaching staff for any NSC team.
  • To not be disruptive during team instruction/play
  • To treat teammates and coaching staff with respect
  • To be supportive and encouraging of teammates
  • To learn the rules of the game and treat all volunteers and league officials with courtesy
  • To refrain from any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any official, coach, player, or parent such as booing and taunting; refusing to shake hands; or using profane language or gestures
  • To uphold the spirit and laws of the game
  • To not bring loss of honor, reputation or respect to the program through their actions or words
  • To not blame, criticize or cause intentional harm to teammates
  • To keep academics as a priority and ensure grades will not suffer for the sake of personal soccer goals
  • To be available and to participate in at least 80% of all team events
