Spectrum of Play

Choose an Appropriate Program for your Child

NGS has more than 1200 players and 250 coaches participating in our programs. Within such a large program, one finds a wide range of interest and ability. For some participants, soccer as their primary activity; they are highly motivated to play as much as possible. Other players are committed to multiple extracurriculars; soccer is enjoyable, but not their passion. Avoid frustration by selecting the program that best matches your child’s current level of enthusiasm, skill set, and availability.
