Juniors: Kindergarten

Season Dates

The 2022 spring season starts on Saturday, April 9 and ends Saturday, June 11, 2022.  Sessions are scheduled for the Saturdays around NPS Spring Vacation Week (April 16 & April 23) and Memorial Day Weekend (May 28).

Session Time

The NGS Juniors Kindergarten (JK) program meets on Saturdays from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM. See below for weekly match schedule.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your session time starts so that training can start on time! Late arrivals are hard on everyone, including the child.

Location

Teams will be using fields 1 – 7 at Hamilton / Lower Falls Field.  Meet your professional coach on the field a few minutes before your session begins.

Teams

JK players are assigned to flexible teams.   Instructions will be given on the field each week by our professional coaches. 

To find out your player’s assignment and view the team’s roster please visit http://try.thepositivecoachingapp.com/ngs to access your Positive Coaching Account (TPCA). Fall teams are announced in late August. Spring teams are announced in late March.

What to Expect

Structure: 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. Unfortunately, this season, we will not be able to end our sessions with a shared snack time.

Coaching: NGS Coaching Guidelines K thru Grade 2

Key reminder: Please do not coach, direct or shout instructions to the girls from the sidelines.

What to bring / wear:

  • Soccer ball (size 3)
  • Water bottle
  • Hand sanitizer
  • NGS Jersey
  • Shin-guards
  • Cleats

You can buy all the gear online at https://newtongirlssoccer.org/store/juniors-uniforms/.

Snacks: Due to COVID-19 precautions, there will be no shared snacks at practices, game half-times, or after games.

NGS Safety Policy: 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.

Weather Cancellations & Field Closures

For rainouts, check the NGS home page or fields page.  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 texts or tweets regarding field status by following @newtonfields.
