Nido Adult Soccer Academy: Season 2
After a successful first season filled with friendly games, tournaments and lots of fun, we will be running another season of the Nido Adult Soccer Academy.

Are you a Nido parent, alumni, or staff who loves to play soccer, but doesn't have a way to play? Join us on Monday
and Thursday evenings, starting in August 17th, for the Nido Adult Soccer Academy.

The objective of the Nido Adult Soccer Academy is to provide a professionally organized and structured soccer training environment for Nido parents, alumni, and staff. The coaching sessions and activities the academy offers are aimed at various skill levels with specialized training for goalkeepers, and the main emphasis is for the participants to have fun and get to know their peers.

The academy coaches will ensure that all activities and games are conducted safely and at all times within the spirit of Nido sports and fair play. We want all our players to end every coaching session with a sense of achievement and enjoyment.

In addition to the training sessions, the program will seek opportunities to organize teams to enter local tournaments, which may be limited to certain participants depending on tournament rules (some local tournaments are for fathers only).

Our mission is to provide space for recreation, to have fun through soccer, and to promote values such as responsibility, perseverance, commitment, teamwork, effort, achievement, freedom, joy, leadership, and solidarity.

Try it out! Join a free practice on Thursday, August 17 at 8pm on the Nido Soccer Field. Bring your sports clothes, soccer shoes (cleats), and shinguards.
