Application Process and Timeline (U10 – U15 Players)

September – April

Get to Know the Program!

Explore our website and talk to our Academy staff to confirm that the program is a good fit for your daughter. Come watch a practice or a game. Check out our Instagram page. Players should commit to improving their game.

NOTE – A player CANNOT concurrently play for both a private club team and a Newton Academy or Development Academy team. This is a conflict of interest and not allowed by any league.


Declare your Interest!

We will post details about next year’s academy, including fees and schedules. Then, we will email all NGS travel players a survey link to declare interest in being considered for the Academy program. Participating in the assessments is not a substitute for this step. Only players who complete this survey will be considered for a spot on an academy and/or development team. Returning players MUST also declare their interest for the following year.

Late April

Register for the NGS TRAVEL Program!

All Newton Academy players are REQUIRED to play on an NGS Travel team. Register for the fall 2023 – spring 2024 travel program BEFORE your daughter’s Travel Assessment date. Registration opens on April 14.

Early May

Attend the NGS TRAVEL Assessment

Attend the Travel Assessment session for the grade your daughter will enter in fall 2023 (not her current grade). There are not separate assessments for Academy candidates. Our spring assessments are used along with coach evaluations for BOTH Travel team placement and Academy player selection. See schedule.

Mid-May / Early June

Watch your Inbox!

Invitations for the Academy Teams will first be emailed to the top-ranked players in each age group who have expressed interest in being considered for the Academy. Players will have 48 hours to accept or decline the invitation. We will continue to send invitations until the Academy Team rosters are full. Next, invitations will be emailed to players selected for the Development Academy Teams using the same process. Finally, notice will be sent to players who are on the waitlist. Please be patient. This process can take several weeks.
