Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 07, 2012
This season, Nashville Soccer United (NSU) is inviting growth by welcoming their newest age division: the Cubs. Nashville Soccer United is a grassroots effort to create a youth soccer following in Nashville driven by parent engagement and team involvement. The cubs range in age from 4-5 and practice/scrimmage one time per week. Teaching these young soccer players is a coordinated effort between a licensed coach and active parent volunteers. The weekly practices are divided between soccer skill exercises and small sided scrimmages.
Nashville Soccer United, a youth soccer league located in Nashville, was founded to help bring soccer to families who can’t afford to participate in the many middle TN suburban leagues. As quoted from the website, “Coaches, parents and teammates will help kids learn about soccer, but also much more. Children will learn by doing [including ] life lessons [like] being on a team, responsibility, making decisions, sportsmanship, being active, making friends and much more.”
NSU strives to be more than just a soccer organization by taking on the responsibility of demonstrating positive leadership roles and encouraging respectful ambition and competition. There is also a strong focus on parent participation; NSU asks parents to help out in practices, games and team activities.
The league has age groups that range from the newest Cubs, up to U-15 both girls and boys and all age groups in between. The older age groups have been playing together for a couple of years whereas the Cubs are new this year.
Coach Pat McCombs stated, “The cubs division is a great way for a lot of young kids to get athletic and social experience. With almost 80 participants, the program is very interactive and exciting for both the players and all the parents that come out to help.” Soccer leagues for the fall of 2012 are now forming.
