About NORTAC Programming

Key points:

This is a volunteer program that depends on parent volunteer coaches
Coaches receive weekly lesson plans & instructional videos and support & training from the NORTAC Staff

Players will normally train twice per week: once a week with their team and once a week with NORTAC Soccer

Generally, one game will be played every Sunday Afternoon. Teams will also play three-midweek games during their normally scheduled NORTAC days

Participating in the Spring Programming will NOT conflict with tryouts or other Sparta Tacoma program events. If your player is old enough and interested in Sparta, we still encourage them to participate in the Spring Academy.


Each team in the program shall have a designated head coach and at least one designated assistant coach. Coaches for the NORTAC Soccer Academy are all strictly volunteers. All coaches who are under 18 years of age must work under the supervision of an adult at all times. All adults who are involved with the team on a regular basis (coach, assistant, team manager) must register through NORTAC Soccer Club and go through a simple risk management clearance process before working with the kids.

Our Coaches come from a variety of backgrounds, and previous soccer knowledge is preferred but not required. The ability to work with children and a willingness to follow the program philosophies and guidelines are more critical to success than soccer know-how, and some of our best and most effective coaches in the past have come from limited soccer backgrounds. The coaching commitment is only about 3 hours per week, and ongoing on-the-job training and support are provided by our Technical Directors and staff coaches.
