The cost is $120 if you register prior to the late registration date. $140 after that date, and $150 for the waiting list.
What's the Difference between Recreational and Developmental divisions?
Depending on participation, Alliance will offer 2 different divisions within each age group, recreational and developmental. Each player, coach, and/or team chooses their preferred division they would like to play in during the registration process. Although Alliance would love to provide a great place for every player. Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting elite-level club teams. Please contact us via email if you would like to discuss your team’s skill level.
Recreational: Our recreational division is designated for players and coaches at the beginner up to intermediate level. This division will be made up of newly formed teams and individual players that are looking to have fun and learn the fundamentals of the game.
Developmental: Our developmental division is designated for players and coaches at the intermediate level. This division will be made up of teams that have played together in the past, are entry-level club teams, and for individual players looking for a more competitive atmosphere. Teams and players in this division are typically looking to progress their team and individual skills in order to advance to the next level of the game.
NOTE: If there are not enough Developmental or Recreational registrations to properly form 2 divisions, the league will combine all players into one division. Players will automatically be placed in the the recreational division.

I've registered my child, now what?
First off, thank you. Now, sit back and relax as we compile all of the registrations. Once the majority of the registrations are in, we will then hand over the team rosters and contact information to the assigned coach. Coaches will then contact you directly a couple of weeks before the start of the season with team and practice details.
I did not receive my email confirmation from Alliance.
Hotmail, AOL, Cox, Yahoo! and Google email addresses are very popular and as a result, receive a large amount of spam or junk email. For this reason, they have junk mail filters that in some cases only allow those email addresses that are in your address book to arrive in your inbox. For this reason, it is important that firstname.lastname@example.org is added to your address book so that you receive important emails from us that relate to your registration or the league.
Should I have received a confirmation email after registering?
Yes. In fact, you should receive two emails. One email will come from us confirming your registration and another for the payment through Authorize.net. If you don't receive these emails, please check your spam folder before contacting us. To ensure that these emails get to you please add "email@example.com" and "firstname.lastname@example.org" to your contacts.
If my child has friends, classmates or relatives that want to be on the same team, can they?
Yes, absolutely. We encourage players to invite their friends to join their team. Make sure to express each other's names on the registration form under the "Put me on the same team as" field. Also, players must be within the same age division or they will be placed on separate teams without prior notice.
When is the last day I can switch teams?
First, if you know what team you want to be on, please put the team name, coach's name, or player's name in the field labeled "Put me on the same team as" on the registration form. We post the team change deadline on the home page of our website. Any changes after this point will only be accepted if a coach requests the transfer of the player. There will be a change of team fee of $25 that will be charged due to reordering a new uniform. There are NO team changes after the first game has been played. We will only consider a team change for special situations.
I was placed on the wrong team, can I change teams?
If you did not request a team at the time you registered, then we might be able to transfer your player with a $25 Chang of Team fee. There are no guarantees we can transfer your player. You can do this up to 1 week prior to the first scheduled game. After this date, we will only accept a change team request on a case-by-case basis. Even then, there will be a $25 fee and will be limited to availability. There are NO team changes after the first game has been played.
When does registration open and when is the last day to register?
We will announce the opening of registration on our website, Facebook, and will send an email to everyone in our database. Be aware there are late registration fees that begin approximately one month prior to the season start. Seasons start in March for the Spring, and September for the Fall.

Who Runs Nevada Alliance?
We are a non-profit, recreational and developmental, co-ed youth soccer league. We are run by a very small, part-time staff. Coaches are volunteers and an extension of the League. Coaches set their own practice times, dates, and location. It is their team and they will conduct the team as they see fit within a respectful manner. Coaches are not employed by the league and volunteer their time to the team and your player. Referees are hired by the league to officiate games and closely follow US Youth Soccer rules and regulations.
When will season schedules be distributed?
The latest's season schedule will be available under game details (HERE
) one-two weeks prior to the season start date.
Can I change my child's team if we are unable to attend practices or if we do not like the coach?
Yes, you may change teams as long as there is an open spot available. There will also be a $25 change of Chang of Team fee after the "Change Team Deadline".
Will the league provide uniforms?
Yes, your child will receive a full uniform including jersey, shorts, and socks from Alliance. Your coach or team manager will distribute the uniforms prior to season start. If you register late or change teams after the first order is sent to the manufacture, your uniform may come later than the rest of your team's. Registering early does not guarantee a uniform will be ordered with the first order. If you are waiting for a uniform to come in, please see an Alliance represenative prior to that week's game time. Come about 30 mins early to check.
What happens if I order the wrong size uniform?
Please Make sure you use the size chart provided on the registration page before picking your uniform size. You can also see a size chart on the registration page. If you order the wrong size, the league charges $25 to order a new one. Each season we order new uniforms and don't keep any in stock. So, if we have to order a new uniform, it costs the league $25 to get a new one.
How many games are there and how long is the season?
We plan for 8-10 games over a 10 to 14 week season, however, due to various circumstances seen and unforeseen, we may not be able to provide 8 games (for example; poor weather, park permits or health emergencies). With the possibility of extra playoff games or game cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances.
Where are games played?
We currently have two regions open for registration, so depending on what side of town you live on you can register to play at the New Silver Bowl Park on Boulder Highway and Russell (Henderson Alliance) or the North Side Basin at Desert Breeze Park on Durango and Spring Mtn - . (Southwest Alliance).
What are possible reasons for game cancellations?
Although we never want to cancel games, sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that do not allow for safe and quality game play. Please note, games may be canceled due to the following reasons...
- Lightning within the Las Vegas Valley
- High winds over 25 mph
- Heavy rains
- County Park Closures
What days are practices?
Practice times and dates vary and are dictated by each individual coach. Alliance holds park permits for Monday-Friday from 5:00 - 8:30 pm for practices (with potential CCPR exception days/dates) and Saturdays from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm for games. Practices at other parks or occur outside of permit days/times are at the team's own risk and may not be covered by player insurance.
Where do practices take place?
The league encourages all teams to practice at the permitted fields. A Coach can elect to hold practices at a different location up to a 3-mile radius of the permitted fields. Any team that practices further than the 3-mile radius, needs a unanimous decision/vote from parents to do so. If the league receives communication that practices have moved without a unanimous vote, the coach will be instructed to move the practices to the permitted fields. Failure to comply could cause the team to forfeit their games.
Do I need to purchase any equipment?
Yes, players will need... Cleats, Shinguards, a Ball, Practice Socks, and a Water Bottle.
Does Alliance play with 11 players on the field?
No, depending on your child's age, the player's numbers will vary. The youngest age will play 3 vs. 3 or 4 vs. 4 (no goalie) and the oldest kids will play 8 vs. 8 (with goalie).
Does Alliance play on full-size fields?
No, we believe at this level of play it is better for kids to play on smaller fields with a smaller amount of players. This way, players are able to receive the ball a lot more, allowing them to develop their skills sooner.
Is Alliance a co-ed league?
Yes, Alliance is a co-ed league, however, coaches are allowed to form an all-girls or all-boys team. They just need to know that they will be playing against the opposite gender.
Is Alliance a competitive league?
No, Alliance is a recreational and developmental league. However, we do keep scores as well as records of wins, draws, and losses (except for the U6 division). At this time, our skill levels are beginner to intermediate. Coaches are allowed to register an entire team. These players may have been playing together for a few seasons. Alliance is not a club organization.
I want to know about how Photo Day works?
Photo day is usually about halfway through the season. Packets and photo day information are sent to coaches around the second week of games. You don't have to use the league-provided photographer. The league only schedules photo days and does not manage the process of photo production or distribution. It is free to take your photo and is available for purchase through the photography company, Shutterbug Photography.
Q: When will my son or daughter get their picture taken?
A: Pictures will be available on the final day of the season and distributed to each team's coach or team manager. The league will not store or distribute photographs. If you don't receive your photos by the end of the season or there is a problem with your order, please call Shutterbug Photography directly at 702-798-0513.
Q: What packages do they offer?
A: Packages will be distributed to you by your coach. Also, we will send you an email with a copy of the order form. Order forms will be made available on the next game day.
Q: When will we receive our photos?
A: It will take about 2 - 3 weeks to get the pictures back. Photos will be distributed to each team's coach or team manager. The league will not store or distribute photographs.

or click on contact in the menu. All complaints must be made via email. Please be Short and Concise. Any complaints without details will not be answered.
What is the parent's accountability for injuries?
Parent Accountability: I understand that NASL (Alliance) does not provide any medical assistance during practice times and/or during game days. Any injury suffered by a player or spectator need to be assessed by the parent/guardian of that individual. Any decision to seek medical attention is the sole responsibility of the parent/guardian.
