Staff is second to none!

First of all, THANK YOU so very much for all you’ve done for my girls’ team from Alaska. They had a ball and, of course, came away with better skills and a better understanding of what it takes to be an elite athlete!

Love NSC!

I grew up on the Northwest Soccer Camp fields. I not only learned about soccer, but was encouraged to pursue my dreams and deal with life. Uncle Nubs and the veteran NSC staff helped me to reach my potential as a soccer player, and pushed me to be the best person I can be.

Outstanding coaches!

The coaches for Elite week were truly outstanding! My son was challenged and left with a stronger level of confidence and determination. I really like that the report cards are honest and not written to make parents "feel good." The only way for these kids to improve is to have positive adults articulate their weaknesses - but also provide solutions
