North Kitsap Soccer Club

NK Select (Competitive)

The North Kitsap Soccer Club Select program was formed in 1998 with 2 select teams.  We are a member club of both US Club Soccer (USCS) and Washington Youth Soccer (WYS) both nationally recognized youth soccer organizations.

Since our beginnings we have grown to nearly 300 participants including players, coaches and staff.  Our teams play in local through highly competitive state and regional leagues. We produce state and regional champions and some compete nationally.

NKSC Select provides comprehensive training for boys and girls 10-18 years old who have the desire, dedication, commitment and will to achieve individual and team success.

Our Philosophy

NKSC strives to be a high quality, educational-athletic organization that provides a positive environment for the selection, coaching, and development of student athletes who possess the desire to be the best they can be.  

Put simply, our goal is to teach our athletes to play "
for the love of the game” by creating and maintaining this positive environment while emphasizing player development, sportsmanship and learning life skills. 

To help achieve this goal NKSC is dedicated to:

  • Coaching using the principles of Positive Coaching
  • Teaching players what it takes to be a good team and good teammate
  • Emphasizing technical (ball control) skills, especially at younger ages as the critical basis to future success in the sport.
  • Teaching advanced soccer skills, tactics and strategies to improve both individual and team performance.
  • Teaching life lessons and skills that have value beyond the playing field.
  • Emphasizing that after team formation each player has an important role to play in order for the team to maximize team success.
  • Providing advanced training and competition at affordable cost.
  • Recognizing, reducing and combating soccer burnout so players will make soccer their life sport.
  • Allowing teams to seek their own competitive level of play based on their performance.
  • Encouraging players to maintain a healthy balance between family, school and soccer.
  • Teaching that dedication, commitment and teamwork allows its participants to accomplish more then the sum of the individuals.
  • Acknowledging that parents, along with players and staff, all play critical roles in providing a positive environment which ultimately ensures team and program success.

We believe this positive environment, one in which parents, players, coaches and staff all work together, is the best way to achieve our goal of ensuring our NKSC athletes play "for the love of the game".
