If you have never played before or have been playing for only a couple years, it doesn’t matter. The most important thing is that you have fun and learn a little.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 21, 2012
Nashville Soccer United (NSU) will be holding tryouts on Thursday May, 24 and Friday May, 25, at Glendale Elementary School. The tryouts are also an Open House of sorts and are geared for sign-ups for the upcoming fall season, which runs August through October.
Tryouts for the travel teams are open to boys and girls ages in the Under-9 to Under-12 age groups. Tryouts for the Under-13 and above groups will be held at a later date. NSU travel teams will compete throughout the fall against clubs from around the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area, including teams from Brentwood, Franklin, Smyrna and Murfreesboro. Generally, these games are within a thirty-minute drive of downtown Nashville. "Travel light" teams usually play games or tournaments for eight weekends out of the twelve-week season, with practices twice-a-week beginning in mid-August.
At Nashville Soccer United, no one is ever denied a chance to play with a team; everyone gets a chance to join an appropriate team. During tryouts, licensed coaches will assess players' skill levels and place them on a team appropriate to the child's level of play. Players are asked to bring cleats, shin guards, and water.
“We have kids with all different levels of experience tryout,” stated Director of Coaching, Michel Henry. “If you have never played before or have been playing for only a couple years, it doesn’t matter. The most important thing is that you have fun and learn a little. We strive to help each individual child become a better, well-rounded player. All of our players progress, though some more than others.”
The downtown Nashville youth soccer club gives children who do not live in a suburban area, the opportunity to learn a fun sport while staying active and healthy. All home games and practices are held at fields conveniently located near the various residential areas of downtown Nashville. Volunteers and professional paid coaches focus on helping young players develop as part of a local soccer community. Kids learn soccer skills as well as other important life lessons which are part of playing team sports.
Nashville Soccer United is managed and organized by a group of parents who recognized a growing need for a youth soccer program in the downtown Nashville area. They provide a network of support for children wanting to learn the game of soccer, along with fun and friendly professional soccer coaches. It is their hope that kids and parents who get involved with a soccer club early on will form a better appreciation for a sport that garners worldwide popularity and that they will continue to play for years to come.
