ARTICLES SUPPORTING NUSA'S STRUCTURE

If you join the Nashville United Soccer Academy (NUSA), you will find that we are taking a new direction with Competitive Youth Soccer.  Our plan is to Train More and Play Less, just like they do in the most successful Clubs in the world.  US Youth Soccer, FC Barcelona, and so many others agree ... we are just not doing it the right way in America.  We need to change the culture of youth soccer (and other youth sports).  NUSA is here to start that change for Middle Tennessee.  Below are some good videos clips and articles which support NUSA's Academy Structure, coaching methodologies and philosophies:

First is an AWESOME production by 60 Minutes about FC Barcelona and how they have used their philosophy to place more "home grown" talent on their Championship Team than ever before:
