Welcome to the Northern Counties Soccer Association (NCSA) Website and the Fall 2016 NCSA season, which begins on September 10th.
Interest and participation in youth soccer continues to grow and NCSA is no exception - for the Fall 2016 season there are more Clubs and Teams participating in our league than ever before - over 1,000 teams! This season, our Games Chairs completed the largest Games Schedule in the history of NCSA!
NCSA is very fortunate to have clubs that are dedicated to “The Beautiful Game” of soccer. Within each Club there are many Volunteers, Coaches, Players and Parents that work very hard and spend many hours to make the season successful and enjoyable for all involved. In addition, NCSA is fortunate to have Referees whose commitment and efforts ensure that games are played by, and within the spirit of, FIFA Laws of the Game and NCSA Rules, as well as devoted league Board Members who spend countless hours to ensure that league operations run smoothly and efficiently.
Please take a few moments to browse the NCSA website. The website is a comprehensive site to serve the Clubs, Coaches, Players, Referees and Parents in our league. You will find many areas of information on the site; League information includes Board Members, Rules of Competition, League Calendar and more. Club Information includes Club Presidents, and Club Reps, Club Websites, each Club's Teams and Coaches, Fields and Directions and more. League Schedules are available by Club, Team, Flight and Field. Standings are viewable by each flight. In addition, there are pages with helpful information for Coaches, Players and Parents.
NCSA has registered clubs in two states, New Jersey and New York. Our teams play two seasons of competition - fall (U8 to U15) and spring (U8 to U19). Our website provides constant communication with our clubs and their coaches, players and parents and in addition, NCSA Division Commissioners are assigned by age groupings to be the first level of contact with NCSA. Our referees are US Soccer Federation certified and are assigned to games on a weekly basis. The NCSA Board is very active with our clubs by holding Club, New Coach and Referee meetings/training seminars which include administrative and game day responsibilities.
Let me close by saying that on behalf of the entire NCSA Board, I wish all participants a successful and enjoyable Fall 2016 season.
