Newton Girls Soccer offers multiple ways for motivated girls to improve their soccer skills and become better players. The Skills Development Program was created expressly for this purpose. Girls in the SD Program get an extra hour of practice every week and player-focused training by the NGS Professional Coaching Staff. The SD Program is open to all players in K through Grade 8 and as sessions offering grade and age appropriate tactical training and skills development, as well as specialty clinics for players interested in improving specific aspects of their game.

Skills: The curriculum used for the skills training sessions is centered around player development and enjoyment of the game. We as a club aim to develop skilled, confident and creative soccer players in a FUN, positive learning environment teaching them all aspects of the game based on the four pillars of players development (technical, tactical, physical & psychological skills). Sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each individual player in the session and will cover topics such as Ball Mastery, passing & receiving, 1v1 attack & defense, speed, finishing and small sided games.

We strongly encourage all interested players to sign-up ASAP as spaces are limited so register here today and don’t miss out!  If a session is full, you can register for the wait list and will be contacted if a space opens.

**PLEASE NOTE, the schedule is subject to minor changes depending on registration numbers and coach availability.

The details:

  • Sessions will be held weekly and run for 1 hour, starting the week of Sept 11.
  • Session fee $180
  • All players must wear a NGS Skills Development Jersey which can be ordered for new players for $19 through our online store.  To receive the shirt before the program starts, you must place your order by August 31st.  If your daughter has a shirt from a previous skills development session, she can wear the same one.  You only need to purchase a new shirt if you don’t have one or if you want the new style.
