For NGS U11 and U12 Travel Families:

Our “Freestyle Fridays” free winter drop-in program is drawing to a close, but Travel and Academy players who are interested in attending one more session still have a chance.

As reminder, the idea is for each NGS Travel and NGS Academy age group to have an evening of fun, low-pressure soccer activities and on Friday evenings from 6 to 7:30 PM. Feedback on these sessions has been great, and the facility is fantastic, with brand new indoor turf that plays a lot like real grass.

We have two sessions left:

  1. Players in the U11 age group are invited to participate this Friday, March 1.
  2. Players in the U12 age group are invited to participate next Friday, March 8.

The location is the new Valeo Sports Center at 125 Wells Avenue in the Wells Avenue office park, which is located off of Nahanton Street. Valeo’s upgraded turf means players can now wear cleats to the sessions. Players should also bring a ball and a water bottle and leave jewelry at home.

The program is free, but limited to the first 24 players who RSVP.

E-mail RSVPs should be sent to Ralph Ranalli at ralphranalli (at) Please state which session your daughter is planning to attend.
