Juniors: Kindergarten

Season Dates

The 10-week fall season starts on Saturday, September 7 and ends November 9, 2019.  November 16th is our make–up date, if we have a number of weather cancellations. We DO play Columbus day weekend (Saturday, October 12). It is not a problem if your daughter must miss a few sessions this season. The program is designed to be very flexible.

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 10-15 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 A1 – A5 at the Highlands 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 2019 teams will be annouced in late August.

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. Each session ends 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: Players should bring a size 3 soccer ball, water, and appropriate soccer attire (NGS Jersey, shin-guards and cleats).  You can buy all the gear online at http://newtongirlssoccer.org/store/juniors-uniforms/.

Snacks: Each family will be asked to volunteer to bring a nut-free snack for the 7-9 players on their team after one of the games.  At this age, the snack can be what the kids remember most!   Providing a snack is the responsibility of each team and will be organized by the team’s coach.

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.
