Registration is now open for the Fall 2013/Spring 2014 - Challenger League

The player and team registration deadline for the new season is quickly approaching.  If you are interested in coaching a Youth Competition Soccer team this year, please read the appropriate information below carefully and completely.
General Information
Coaching Requirements
All coaches and assistant coaches coaching in the Competition programs are required to have a coaching license. All coaches and assistant coaches on Challenger League, State Competition & X-League teams are required to hold an E license.

All coaches and assistant coaches on State competition teams that coach multiple teams in the State competition program are required to hold a D license. License waivers are available for coaches who do not currently have a coaching license. Waivers are good for one season, and may only be granted to an individual once in a lifetime.

Once the waiver is expired, the coach will no longer be allowed to coach until they receive their coaching license. D waivers may only be granted to coaches who already hold an E license. Coaches who coach more than one team, must have a licensed assistant coach for each team.

There is an E license course schedule for June 17, 18, 20 & 22nd. The cost is $125, NUU will reimburse 50% upon completion of the course.

Referees for all competition games are to be paid in CASH on the field. A comprehensive breakdown of referee fees you will need to collect and the cost per game will be included in registration information that will be sent to you.


Field Approval
You must get field approval for use of all fields. Your team registration will not be accepted without the appropriate field approval signatures.

We suggest that all coaches work with their teams to make sure that we are respectful regarding the use of these fields to help us ensure that we may continue to keep these fees as low as possible. Please make sure that your team picks up all trash before leaving the fields, and be cautious not to play on overly wet fields, or encourage any activities which may result in damage to the playing fields.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Far can players play-up in age?
Players U9 / U10 can only play up 1 year. U11 - U14 can play up 2 years, and players U15 and older are unlimited. Play up is determined by the player’s actual age and the age of the oldest player in the division they will be playing in. (ie: a U11 player can play up to a U13 team, unless the U13 team is playing in a U14 division). U13 & U14 players cannot play up into a High School division.

What forms of payment can we use to pay our online fees?
We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover cards, and e-checks, which allow you to take funds directly from your bank account. All team and field usage fees must be paid by check or cash directly to the league registrar during team registration. If you have any additional questions regarding payment options, please contact Terri Baker at 753-8202.

When will the online registration be open so I can start registering players?
Online registration is open. You can start having your players register as soon as you receive your team assignment codes.
