Opportunities for Youth

High School-Age Coaching Program

Newton Girls Soccer is always looking for high school girls interested in becoming an assistant coach for our City teams in grades 2-6. The league is also looking for a limited number of girls to help as assistant coaches with the younger age groups in our BAYS Travel Program. If you are a 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grader, you are eligible to volunteer as a coach or assistant coach with NGS.

The job is a rewarding one: It will allow you to work with the soccer skills you have learned and now use so effectively as a player, and will give you a chance to instruct our younger players, providing them and you with an outstanding soccer experience. As a coach, you will also serve as a role model for these younger players.

Juniors K/1 Assistant Coach Program

Newton Girls Soccer is also looking for 9th through 12th grade girls interested in helping with coaching our kindergarten and 1st grade teams. The K/1 curriculum focuses heavily on teaching skills and technique. As an assistant coach, you would work with the NGS Pro Trainers, highlight all the things the players are doing well, and help create a FUN learning environment. Their are two 1st Grade 75 min sessions at 8.30am and 10.00am, and one Kindergarten 60 min session at 11.30am on Saturday mornings . You would be assigned to two or three sessions each Saturday, and you would be expected to be available for about 75% of the sessions.

To volunteer, please contact Director of Coaching Shaun McBrien by Mid August for the fall season and Mid March for the spring season. NGS will provide a small coaching stipend to high school aged coaches.
