Academy Teams

Academy-Final-RGB

The Academy Program is an invitation-only, year-round program (fall, winter & spring) for those girls seeking an additional competitive challenge and a developmental soccer experience beyond their NGS Travel Team. We have two levels of involvement, Academy teams and Development Academy teams.  Both levels are professionally coached, train as a team once a week (in addition to their Travel team practices) and play weekend Futsal games in the winter months.  With our newly formed strategic partnership with New England Futbol Club (NEFC), our Academy teams (not Development teams) will also participate in club games every Sunday (fall & spring) in New England Premiership.
