Registration ending dates and the start of soccer season have been extended due to not being at Phase 3 as of yet. Registration will now end September 20th. The new expected season start date will be October 10th. We will be playing games throughout the week under the lights at NELSA's Vantage Field complex as well as on Saturday mornings and afternoons. This will enable all teams ample opportunities to fit all scheduled games in before November 15th.
Congratulations to the following players who made a NELSA FC competitive team. Your coaches will be in touch with you shortly regarding all requirements for registering, uniforms, practice sessions, etc.
