NGS Spring 2014 Skills Development Program

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 Pre-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 Skills Training Sessions will focus on fundamental ball handling skills in the younger age groups and will increasingly incorporate tactical play in the upper age groups.

Goalkeeper: The Goalkeeper Training Sessions are structured to provide an understanding of the goalie position as well as develop the skills and strategy needed to play the position confidently.


**NEW** Rick Sewall Soccer Tech Strikers Clinic:

There is nothing better and more exciting in a soccer game than scoring a goal. The Rick Sewall Soccer Tech Strikers Clinic is specifically designed to improve players’ overall technical ability and confidence to finish chances on goal. Using the ‘Vogelsinger Soccer Philosophy’ players will focus on teaching the necessary technical skills of properly striking, slotting, volleying and creatively putting the ball in the back of the net. In addition, professional coaches Rick and Alex Sewall will utilize unique attack-oriented activities to simulate game situations, including: crossing and finishing, receiving & turning, 1 v 1’s and a variety of combination play. Players will gain an increased understanding of attacking play in and around the goal while building a strong self-confidence in creating and scoring goals. The program is open to our most motivated and dedicated players that want to improve.


**NEW** Pre-Kindergarten Soccer (3.5-5 Years Old) The Pre-K soccer program is an incredible introduction to the movement and coordination skills learned through soccer. Girls will be introduced to the world’s most popular sport while focusing on having FUN, in a exciting and creative environment.
