28th Annual Leidos KICKS Invitational: October 16th-18th
We are just 2-weeks away from the kick-off of our 28th Annual Leidos KICKS Invitational tournament. We are excited to host over 100 teams for this year's event. Your North Alabama SC team is working hard to finish preparations to make sure this year's tournament is our best yet.  

We appreciate everyone's support as this is our Club's largest annual fundraiser. Look for more information in the coming days on how you can get involved in this year's tournament.

Thank you to our tournament sponsors and partners: Leidos, Capelli Sport, TOC Sports, HH Sports Center, Dick's Sporting Goods, Gatorade, Team Travel Source, and Simax Sports.

Uniforms
Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as our new apparel partner Capelli Sport battled some supply chain and distribution delays due to COVID. Everyone should have received their uniforms and any backordered items. If you are still waiting on an item to be delivered, please contact Capelli Sport customer service directly regarding your order. If you need additional assistance after contacting Capelli Sport, please reach out to our Uniform Coordinator at uniforms@northalabamasc.org.

We love seeing all the game-day action pics on social media. The players and new uniforms looks awesome! Be sure to tag us @northalabamasc on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so we don't miss out.

Alabama State League & State Cup
It's hard to believe that there are only 3-weeks left in the Alabama State League (ASL) regular season for our Division 1 15U-19U and Division 2 14U-19U teams. We look forward to seeing our teams finish strong and prepare for State Cup. First Round weekend is October 30th-31st. Followed by the State Cup Final Four in Foley on November 6th-8th. We'll keep you posted on all the post season details as they are finalized.

Soccer doesn't end after State Cup. Our Division 1 13U-14U and Division 2 12U-13U teams will still be competing in the ASL through December 16th.

Recreational, Jr. Academy, and Pre-Academy
Our Recreational, Jr. Academy, and Pre-Academy programs in Huntsville, Madison, and Owens Cross Roads kicked-off their seasons a few weeks ago. We are thrilled to see all the returning and new players competing on the field and enjoying the game of soccer. We look forward to bringing back our Toddler Time and Little Kickerz programs for the spring season.

Create a Positive Game Day Environment
Soccer is meant to be a positive experience for everyone involved. Please remember to create a positive and safe game day experience for everyone: players, coaches, referees, parents, and spectators. Make sure your feedback to the players from the sideline is encouraging and positive and never negative. Focus on comments like great hustle, good effort, great idea, and way to work. Avoid comments like run faster, you should've been there, or that was your fault. Never make negative comments about your player, other players, your team, or the opposing team.

Let the coaches handle the coaching and feedback to the players during the game. Be there to cheer on, lift up, and support your player and your team. 

When you are attending a game - please remember:

  • The players are KIDS.
  • The referees and coaches are HUMAN.
  • It's just a GAME.
  • NO college scholarships are being handed out today.
  • Be RESPECTFUL.


Thank you to everyone in our soccer community for your continued support and assistance to ensure we have a successful season. Let's FINISH STRONG!
