Soccer In Austin
Introduced by Lion Bill Martin
Lee Nichols, Co-President of North Austin Soccer Alliance (NASA), will discuss the organization's successes in providing recreational sports opportunities to children in Austin. He will explain the difference between recreational and "select" sports clubs; the structure of the organization; the challenges to maintaining a strictly recreational, all-volunteer model; and NASA's goal to put more kids on the field regardless the families' ability to pay.
About our speaker:
Lee Nichols reluctantly volunteered to coach his daughters in soccer in 2005, despite very little knowledge of soccer. Thirteen years later, despite his daughters having moved on from soccer, he has joined NASA's board of directors. He also started playing soccer himself, and just joined the over-50 team of the Celtic Cowboys Sports Club. Professionally, he works as the Communications Director for TexProtects, a nonprofit that advocates for the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
