Chair of the NIRSA championship Series Soccer Work Team and Assistant Director of Competitive Sports at the University of Alabama, Laura Thomas says, “Regional NIRSA Soccer tournaments are the only opportunity, for many, to compete at a collegiate-level tournament in the sport of soccer. I’m proud to say we are supporting the vision of The Series by providing a premiere opportunity such as these across the United States. Our Regional Coordinators work hard each year to keep us pushing the needle forward.”

Laura adds, “the professionals and students that support NIRSA by hosting and planning these tournaments have great impact on many colleagues across the field. It’s a great way to get involved, get your foot in the door, and gain experience within The Series.”

We are looking forward to having the NIRSA National Soccer Championships  back in Foley, Alabama at the Foley Sports Tourism Complex this year! The national tournament will take place from November 29 to December 1, 2018! Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of a NIRSA soccer event!
