    The Naperville Soccer Association - NSA Premier

    The Naperville Soccer Association is one of the longest running competitive soccer clubs in the Chicago, Illinois suburbs. NSA Premier, founded in Naperville in 1986, was formed to provide children the opportunity to participate in traveling club soccer in a technically skilled and fun environment. NSA players are coached by highly trained/high level coaches with years of youth coaching experience.  Many of our coaches are not only experienced with youth coaching but also have college, Olympic Development and professional coaching experience. NSA coaches are dedicated to teaching children the fundamental skills of soccer while also impacting and assisting in their athletic careers as they continue to grow through high school and onto the college levels.

    The consistent success of NSA Premier in carrying out our goals can be seen by the creative individual footskills of our players, the large number of players continuing their soccer passion in college, and the major tournament wins compiled since our inception: 2 USYSA National Championships, 9 Midwest Regional Championships, and 36 IYSA IL State Championships. NSA teams compete in the highest divisions in the Illinois Women’s Soccer League (IWSL), Young Sportsmen's Soccer League (YSSL), IYSA State PremiershipMidwest Regional League (MRL), and National League.

    Notes from the Youth Info Meeting

    NSA recently had a meeting to go over it's youth vision for the future, how it complies with US Soccer, and why that matters. Our goal is to prepare players for the next level. At NSA all players will learn shooting, passing, defending, and dribbling. 

    A solid mastery of all skills is needed,  if your goal is to make your middle school team, high school team and also onto college. NSA provides qualified coaches to lead its training sessions with structured lessons, footwork, drills and scrimmages. These essential training tools are proven to produce the best players who can make decisions on the field in real game situations.

    NSA is excited to begin its Monday night training sessions at Nike Turf!  Consistent with NSA's continued focus on development, we are introducing our Club wide Collective Training night.  

    All NSA teams and all NSA coaches will be training every Monday night on the turf to work together and collectively to develop our players. This will create and improve our environment for ALL Players to interact with ALL coaches.

    "Collective Training," by definition, means that the training is a cumulative activity where everyone will work together to improve our teams and individual players.  Also, each phase of training will build off of the previous week and this will be the focus for our CT nights throughout the season.

    Each Monday session will be a progression from the last week. The Coaches' weekly trainings will continue to build upon and emphasize the common themes and ideas from the CT each week.

    We are excited to announce the Spring dates for Tots ages 3-5 and NSA Futures in grades K-4th!
