Registrar Report
Registrar Report
 With the creation of NSD Soccer Club, the role of the
registrar is evolving.

 We have started a comprehensive online registration


process and database which greatly reduces the number of
volunteer hours, and administration hours needed by the
club.

 With the new regulations by the City of Calgary with


regards to the number of signs and areas where signs can
be posted, we have had to come up with other creative
means of advertising, in the form of mail out advertising to
those residents in our main catchment area. Though our
main and preferred form of communication is and will
continue to be email notification of registration dates and
other events.

 With these changes and the availability of the


administrative staff at NSD the role of the registrar is
evolving into more of a Member Services Role.
iii) Director of House League

NSD FOUNDING PRINCIPALS
Access to year round high level sport
specific coaching and instruction.

Whether it is on the Soccer pitch, a Hockey rink, a


Basketball court,
or a Football field, in order to reach their full potential,
athletes must have access to the highest level of coaching
available.

NSD has over 20 fulltime sport specific coaches and


technical specialists providing our athletes with access to
some of the best coaching instruction available today.
NSD FOUNDING PRINCIPALS
Access to year round customized
strength and conditioning programs.
Athletes must be able to incorporate a specifically
customized year round strength and conditioning program
into their overall development regime.

NSD has over 15 high performance and personal training


staff. We offer the best in class sport specific strength and
conditioning specialists to exceed our athlete’s
requirements.
NSD FOUNDING PRINCIPALS
Access to year round high performance
facilities.

Athletes must have access to facilities that are geared


towards training and developing athletes.

Many of today’s facilities are designed to meet the needs of


the general public and are therefore not athletic
development friendly.
By successfully being able to offer these
three vitally linked components, NSD has
become recognized by many Canadian
and global sports associations as one of
the leaders in amateur athletic
development.
