This NSL monthly newsletter summarizes the month's news and notes from various league constituents. In this edition:
As I transition into the role of Executive Director of the Northeast Soccer League (NSL), I am both excited and confident about the next phase in our journey. I am excited because the league is poised to be stronger than ever and I am confident about providing our membership with the best possible soccer experience.
I would personally like to thank Tom Goodman for all of his hard work and contributions on the transition from MAPLE to the NSL. Tom is enjoying a well-deserved break to spend time with his family and will return to coach young players and educate coaches in the near future.
As we enter the next phase in the development of the league, I am very excited about where the league is headed and the new opportunities that will be available to our membership. My hope is to move forward as quickly possible with the help and assistance of Nick Dunbar, the NSL Technical Director.
One of our main tasks moving forward will be to engage with the current membership, listen to their needs, and to develop an action plan designed to provide the best opportunities for all our clubs, teams, and players. Our focus will be to align the needs of the membership with the league's three main objectives:
I am encouraged by the direction and development of the NSL and I invite all our members to engage with us. Get in touch by emailing me at ExecutiveDirector@nslsoccer.
Happy new year to all our member clubs! I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some very important events coming up over the next few months, regarding coach and club development.
