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 Junior Academy program. Participants must commit to three seasons. The Junior Academy 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 in the winter months (if allowed), and
  • participate on an NGS Travel team.

In addition, 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 New England Premiership (NEP).

Our Partners

Our partner, New England Futbol Club (NEFC), is a premier soccer club which develops youth soccer players, ages 6-21 with training locations throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. NEFC trains over 3000 youth players and competes in competitive, local and national leagues. NEFC also provides tournaments, player and coach education and college-placement resources for players.

The New England Club Soccer League was formed in May 2020 for boys and girls ages U9-U19. The league currently has 40 clubs with over 600 teams. The league is located in New England and has clubs from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. The goal of the NECSL is to provide a transparent and merit-based competitive platform for the clubs of the New England area.
