Academy

What can you expect from Newton Girls Academy?

Academy Program Overview

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.

For our 2nd Grade players, we offer a professionally coached, training-only U9 Development Academy team. Participants must commit to three seasons. The U9 program will focus on developing fundamental technical skills in preparation for 3rd grade NGS Travel and Academy soccer. 

We have two levels of involvement for players in Grades 3 – 8, Academy teams and Development Academy teams.  Players at both levels:

  • are professionally coached,
  • train as a team once a week (in addition to their Travel team practices),
  • scrimmage regularly,
  • receive free access to the Techne Futbol App,
  • play futsal and/or indoor soccer in the winter months, and
  • participate on an NGS Travel team.

With our newly formed strategic partnership with New England Futbol Club (NEFC), our Academy teams (not Development teams) also participate in club games every Sunday (fall & spring) in the New England Club Soccer League (NECSL).
