Juniors: Kindergarten

In spring 2019, NGS Juniors Kindergarten (JK) program meets on Saturdays from 11:30-12:30 at Highlands Field (A1-A5). The program begins on Saturday, April 6 and runs through Saturday, June 15.  Sessions are scheduled for both Saturdays of the Newton Public School spring vacation week (April 13 & 20). We will not meet on Saturday, May 25 (Memorial Day weekend).  It is not a problem if your daughter must miss a few sessions this season. The program is designed to be very flexible.

The 60-minute program emphasizes fun, touches on the ball and positive encouragement. Each Saturday, players will break into groups for soccer learning activities led by the NGS Professional Coaching Staff for the first 30 minutes.  In the 2nd half of the session, girls play small-sided (4v4) scrimmages.  There are no goal keepers or scores in the JK program.  Each session ends with a shared snack time.

JK players are assigned to flexible teams.   Instructions will be given on the field each week by our professional coaches.  Match schedules and jersey colors are listed below.  

Key reminders:

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your session time starts so that training can start on time! Late arrivals are hard on everyone, including the child.
  • Teams will be using A1 – A5 at the Highlands Field.  Meet your professional coach on the field a few minutes before your session begins.
  • Players should bring a size 3 soccer ball, water, and appropriate soccer attire (NGS Jersey, shin-guards and cleats or sneakers).
  • Please do not coach, direct or shout instructions to the girls from the sidelines.
  • For safety, NGS has a strict NO JEWELRY policy.  This means no earrings, no taped earrings, bracelets, necklaces or rings.  Players may not wear beads, barrettes or other hard/sharp items.  Players may not participate with casts or splints of any kind.  Remember to remove all jewelry at home so that it does not get lost on the field.  Please do not ask for special permission and make it difficult for the coaches.
  • For rainouts, check the NGS website. Field status is updated by 7am on Saturdays, but be sure to check just before your session time as conditions sometimes change.  You can also sign up for tweets regarding field status by following @newtonfields.
