Spring Soccer, 2015

Northern Junior Athletic Association is happy to announce the opening of registration for our spring soccer season, providing a fun and safe environment for children ages 4-18.

The NJAA Soccer program provides an opportunity for young people in our community to develop healthy life and team skills through participation in a variety of sport activities, including soccer, basketball and cheerleading. Our core values are teamwork, fairness and communication, and we work hard to nurture a positive environment for our participants.

Our youngest players (U4s and U6s) learn ball handling skills and improve coordination with fun games and activities in a relaxed environment. As the age divisions get older (U8, U10, U12, U14 and U18) practices become more structured with age appropriate drills focusing on field positioning, ball control, game strategy and scrimmages. The focus is participation, team building, sportsmanship and fun while kids learn the game of soccer in a cooperative environment. For those who remain a kid at heart, NJAA also sponsors an adult soccer league for anyone 25 years or older.

Games and practices are local and are designed to fit into family schedules – practices are typically on week day evenings, and games are on Saturdays.

NJAA provides an unbeatable value. Led by our dedicated volunteer coaches, players develop into strong, confident individuals that appreciate teamwork, commitment and pride in being a part of the NJAA family. If either you or your child is interested in participating this fall, please click the Online Registration menu item above.

Cheerleading Event and Basketball Exhibition Game

Congratulations to our NJAA Cheerleaders!  They performed at the Duke vs. Miami game this Sunday, January 18 and were fantastic.  This is the second year for NJAA to be invited to perform, and it was even bigger and better this year. Our cheerleaders performed on the sidelines during the game, and then put on a full court show at the half.

Additionally, two of our 11-12 Boys teams competed on the court at Cameron.  The Heat (Coach Greene) and The Spurs (Coach Jones) played a short exhibition game after the cheerleaders performed.  

NJAA was able to sell over 200 tickets to the game, which in addition to being a lot of fun, is an annual fund-raiser for the organization.  

Thanks to everyone involved - Chris Hawkes (Treasurer) and Kelly Bidwell (Secretary and Cheer sponsor) worked very hard to put this event together.  Coach Greene and Coach Jones did a great job getting their teams fired up and ready to play.  And our kids did a wonderful job performing and competing.  As always, they help us put our best foot forward and make all of us proud.  

We look forward to doing this again next year.
