First Touch

The NSU First Touch Program is an in-house soccer program designed to bridge the gap between Micro Soccer (U6) and U8 soccer (recreational or Academy).  It attempts to provide players with competition that is appropriate for their skill and interest level so players are engaged and can build confidence and a love for soccer.  All sessions are professionally coached by NSU’s Academy staff to ensure all players are afforded quality coaching and direction.
