“The Mission of Newton Youth Soccer to enhance the soccer experience of players and coaches in Newton. NYS provides programs and opportunities for every child to develop as an athlete and as a person. We aim to create a foundation of sportsmanship, teamwork and a lifelong love of the game”.
Since 1976, Newton Youth Soccer (NYS) has been promoting youth soccer in Newton, Massachusetts.
NYS sponsors two major programs, an intramural program and a BAYS travel program which are available in the fall and spring seasons. There is a separate organization, Newton Girls Soccer, which is for girls only. We are referred to as the "boys" league to distinguish us from Newton Girls Soccer, but NYS welcomes girls to play in its programs. Our programs enroll about 1,300 players annually and we have one of the largest single town participation in the country.
Every volunteer on the NYS board has a job. During the fall and spring seasons we are busy organizing teams, coaches, uniforms, and equipment. In the spring, we organize tryouts for the following fall BAYS travel season. Throughout the year we train referees, run instructional and licensing clinics for coaches, renovate and maintain fields, and organize equipment. We are all volunteers, and there is always room for more. If you would like to volunteer and be a part of Newton Youth Soccer, email the President.
