NSSA Program Descriptions

SPORT SPECIFIC CLINICS

(Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, Volleyball, Baseball, Softball, Cheer, Dance, Flag Football)

All of NSSA sport-specific clinics focus on age-appropriate skill development, with a strong emphasis on the core fundamentals skills using our three-tiered development model (Steps 1-3). Participants will engage in various skill drills and modified games throughout the 4-days. Each clinic has its specific curriculum tailored for each particular age group lead by a highly qualified coach with high school, college, or club coaching experience in that sport. All of the programs stress the importance of having fun while improving.

COMBO CLINICS

NSSA often runs different sports clinics in the same week. When this happens, athletes can select to participate in both clinics, bouncing back and forth between the other sports. Participants can do this daily (ex. Monday due to Soccer, Tuesday do basketball) or switch in the middle of the day (Soccer in the morning, Basketball after snack break).

ADVANCED  PROGRAM (Step 3)

The proficiency clinics are specialized and focus on advanced training concepts and tactical play. The transition period from grades 7 to 9 is challenging as players need to become more physically, technically, and mentally prepared to compete at MS/JV/HS levels. These half-day programs are sport-specific with advanced skill development with high-intensity training models, advanced tactical concepts, and competitive games.

ALL SPORTS CLINICS

NSSA's Multi-Sports clinics are a staple of NSSA's multi-sport athlete philosophy. These clinics allow young athletes to experience different sports, improve team-building skills through competition, and connect socially with their peers. Sports included: Soccer, Basketball, Floor Hockey. Field Hockey, Lacrosse. Flag Football, Baseball/Softball, Golf, Badminton, Basketball, and Olympic Events.
