About:

The Native American Soccer Coaches Membership Group serves Native American communities throughout the United States by providing positive youth development, using soccer as a means to promote health and wellness, youth leadership and life skills. We partner with the NSCAA to provide a soccer curriculum that is designed to promote physical wellness (improve muscular and cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, agility and strength), mental health (positive outlook, cognitive thinking, problem solving, leadership skills and prevention) and teach soccer skills, techniques and tactics.

Our goal is to use soccer as a vehicle to promote character, integrity, leadership, respect and teamwork. We believe that by expanding coaching education to reservations and pueblos throughout the U.S. we will be able to move in a concerted effort to increase the level of coaching we provide and serve as positive role models for the children we serve.

NSCAA’s Assistant Director of Coaching Education, Dr. Doug Williamson, has provided leadership and support to the programs that we offer. The support of Dr. Williamson and the NSCAA has been instrumental in growing NASCAG as well as soccer in Indian Country.

2015 NSCAA Convention

The Native American Soccer Coaches Membership Group would like to thank the NSCAA for providing our membership group a forum to discuss how we can continue to grow soccer in Native American communities. We want to thank all of the participants who came to our presentation, "Bridging the Gap: Connecting the NSCAA with Native American Communities".  We are very appreciative of the feedback we received as well as the very generous support that was offered.  It was incredible to get the input of Native coaches as well as Non-Native coaches who are interested in supporting the growth of soccer in Native American communities. We are very fortunate to have this support through NSCAA, state associations, clubs, and individuals. Your expertise and generosity will allow us to serve Native Coaches and youth throughout the country. LEARN, PARTICIPATE, BELONG.
