Nova SC Commitment

Nova Premier Soccer Club commitment to our players is to provide them with the best coaching available in a professional, elite player environment. The Nova coaching staff focuses on the 4 pillars of soccer development and is committed to developing each player’s technique (ball mastery), tactical understanding, physical component and the psychological dimension of athletics. All players will be treated fairly, and Nova Premier SC expects that all players will conduct themselves in accordance with the Nova Premier SC Code of Conduct.

Team selection and playing time will be based on commitment, ability, attitude and performance during practices and games. All decisions are made with the team in mind and the Nova coaching staff are committed to doing what is best for the team and the club. Our body of coaching staff is very approachable and open to dialogue with players about areas of improvement and playing time. Our club encourages dialogue between our players and staff and views this dialogue as opportunities for growth and maturation for our players and teams.
