    Curriculum

    We are currently in the process of updating pieces of our Curriculum.

     
    N.E.S.T. Program

    The N.E.S.T Program is a great start for the youth in our community. By following the four pillars of the program - Nurture, Engage, Sensory, Teach - the enjoyment of soccer will last through the years!

    The goals of N.E.S.T. are to make training sessions consistent for all players, simplify scheduling, and provide a safe environment for practice and games. N.E.S.T. provides coaching education for those who volunteer to lead sessions and builds confidence so you can continue coaching in other CBSC program.

    ADDED FOR SPRING 2018

    Tuesday Training!

    Our N.E.S.T. Director will be leading training Tuesday nights for all N.E.S.T participants. This training session will focus on building foot skills to improve their coordination. The training will conclude with a Scramble Scrimmage. This will be held at Riversedge Park from 5:30-6:15PM (U4/5s) and 6:30-7:15PM (U6s)

    Tuesdays are dates that are lead by Gretchen, Staff and N.E.S.T. Coaches are asked to participate. Upon arrival, kids will be asked to go to a field and start playing. They will then be taught skills and learn the difference between changing the angle and change of direction. Lastly, we will have kids play small sided games.

She helped propel the Rams to three state tournament berths, including two state semi-final appearances and was a three-time all-conference performer. Gretchen also played for the Omaha Football Club for seven years and competed in the Midwest Regional League with her Omaha FC team.

    After high school, Gretchen went on to play for Minnesota State University, a Division II school located in Mankato, MN. During her three seasons with the Mavericks, Gretchen helped her team to three regular season conference championships, two conference tournament championships, an NCAA Elite 8 appearance, and two NCAA Sweet 16 appearances. Her team was 56-5-7 during her three seasons at MSU and she earned all-conference academic honors each year. She graduated from MSU with a master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology.

    During her time in college, Gretchen had various coaching opportunities. She was a volunteer coach for Mankato United Soccer Club, where she helped train age groups ranging from u5-u17. As an MSU player, she also had the opportunity to coach for 'Maverick Soccer Academy, a program that provided a fun and challenging opportunity for younger (u5-u10) players to develop new skills and foster their passion for the game. Gretchen also volunteered with TOP Soccer, a program designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any child who has a mental or physical disability.
