NFSC Kicks off TITANS "Pitch In, Play On" Summer Training Sessions!

By Christina Stranges 07/21/2020, 2:15pm EDT

Welcome Back!!

We are excited to announce that NFSC will be launching our 2020 TITANS "Pitch In, Play On" Summer Training Sessions in hopes of getting all our TITANS players, boys and girls, ages 8 to 17, back out on the field and having the opportunity to continue to train despite the fact that the 2020 season was cancelled.

With these sessions, we will be following the Canada Soccer and Ontario Soccer "Return to Play Guidelines" in order to maintain all our members and players safety as our Community and Province slowly return to our new normal during this COVID-19 Pandemic.

We will be running various age divisions once a week which will begin on Monday, July 27th at the E.E. Mitchelson Turf, and will continue until the week of August 24th.  See age specific times/days below.

These sessions will be run by Coach Paul O'Rourke and Coach Vince Stranges of the NFSC Technical Team.  They will run quality drills and skill sessions while maintaining the social distancing guidelines.

Registration will be required as all NFSC players must be registered with Ontario Soccer, waivers will have to be signed, and will be available online only as our Office building is still closed.  See fees below.

We ask that you register your child no later than Saturday, July 25th as we are only permitted so many players on the field during each session.   By knowing the numbers, we will be able to make adjustments to accomodate and prepare.

We look forward to getting everyone back out on the fields safely and to everyone having fun playing some soccer again!

Cost to register;

U8 to U10s - $25.00

U11 and Up - $35.00

Age Specific Days and Times

TITANS Rep/Festival Travel Status Update - June 19th, 2020

By Christina Stranges 06/19/2020, 1:45pm EDT

Attention all Rep/Festival TITANS Travel Teams; 

As today is the day that Niagara moves into Phase 2 and all Athletic Fields are now open, the NFSC Executive Board would like to make clear the importance of our Teams NOT going out for "soccer related gatherings"/training or practicing on any fields. 

Until we have completed the Canada Soccer Risk Assessment form  included with the Ontario Soccer Return to Play Plan/Guide, and have been approved by our Governing bodies to go ahead, the NFSC Board does not condone any "side soccer gatherings", training, or practices on any fields with any of our TITANS teams/players.  Breaching this will result in disciplinary action.

The Niagara Falls Soccer Club Executive Board, Technical Staff and Staff want to ensure that we move into this Phase 1 of Soccer in a safe and responsible manner following all Canada Soccer/Ontario Soccer guidlines and protocols. 

 Our members/staff/Coaches/players and their families are our greatest concern and with that in mind we are diligently working on a Safe Return to Play.    Once the Canada Soccer Return to Play Risk Assessment form is approved and we are confident that we are able to have everything in place, we will let all TITANS Coaches know and go from there!

Stay tuned and Stay safe!

The Niagara Falls Soccer Club Executive Board
