U5 Program

NASC is excited to provide an introductory program for 4 and 5 year olds.  We will run a morning session each Saturday during the season at McKinney Field.  A child is not permitted to “play up” and enroll in the U5 program if he/she is not eligible according to the Age Group chart provided under Registration. This program includes approximately eight sessions (weather permitting).

U5 Saturday sessions will incorporate skill development activities and small-sided games. Each session will be one hour long. The start time and end time for each session are not known until the schedule is created for the season. Schedule creation does not occur until registration is complete. Typically, the start time is between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM. However, this is subject to change depending upon enrollment numbers.

Instruction in this league is focused on skill development. More importantly, it is structured for the kids to have a lot of fun so that their first experience with soccer will be a positive one.  These sessions are directed by a paid coach and a volunteer coach. The session will consist of approximately 30 minutes of skill development with the paid coach, 10 minutes of activity with the volunteer coach, and 20 minutes of small-sided game play with the volunteer coach. There are no goalkeepers in the small-sided games. Small-sided games promote many touches on the ball for each child. They also provide the opportunity for the children to use the skills they learned during the training portion of the session.

Your child will be with the same team of 10-12 players each week.  Your team will be assigned a field number.  You will need to report to the same field number each week.  Your coordinator will place field number signs on McKinney field to help you locate your child's field.

Volunteers Needed! 

NASC is an entirely volunteer run organization. For each team, we need a minimum of 2 coaches to help with the drills and run the games. If you have ever considered coaching, this is a great time to start, even if you have never played before! You can learn the game along with your child, and potentially continue as your child moves into older age groups. You’re going to be at the field anyway, so you might as well join in the fun! Look for the volunteer section as you register your child.
