Atlanta - May 28, 2018 — NASA Tophat (NTH) Soccer Club today formally announced a strategic alliance with Lanier Soccer Association. Starting in the fall of 2018, NTH and Lanier will collaborate on the development of boys and girls players which will enhance both programs at every level.
NTH will provide a pathway for Lanier players to get exposure to US Soccer’s Development Academy (DA), Elite Club National League (ECNL) and Southern Clubs Champions League (SCCL) levels of play for both boys and girls. In addition, NTH will share curriculum and training philosophy with Lanier. Lanier will also share their experience with the NTH staff and give NTH access to their futsal curriculum and expertise. The clubs will share many resources and participate in coaching education programs together as well.
We are very excited to formally announce the NTH/Lanier Alliance and look forward to working closely with Jonathan Cueva and his staff,
said Dave Smith, Executive Director at NTH.
The Lanier community loves its soccer and participates at every level, from recreation through the most competitive teams. Jonathan and his coaching staff do a great job with developing their players and providing them an opportunity to reach their full potential.
Jonathan Cueva, LSA Executive Director added
Lanier Soccer Association is extremely proud to announce our Alliance with NASA Tophat. This alliance will benefit the whole club, and in particular our girls program. When you consider the leadership, vision, experience, and player development success at NTH, this alliance will allow our girls program to grow alongside the gold standard in Georgia Soccer. We are looking forward to working with Dave Smith and his staff at NTH.
