Overview of Programs

Newton Youth Soccer offers two primary programs:

In-Town Intramural

The intramural program is a recreational, non-competitive league for boys and girls from grades one through ten. In order of importance, the intramural programs' objectives are fun, sportsmanship, individual technique, and team play.  Winning is not a priority -- there are no won/loss records, no standings, no playoffs.

Teams are organized by grade level and play other Newton teams made up of players in the same grade. Children who are Newton residents or who attend Newton public schools are eligible to play.  We try to organize teams according to public school districts, if there are enough players in a grade to make a full team and enough volunteer coaches for each team in a specific grade from a specific school.   The fall season typically begins on the first Saturday in September after the start of school and ends on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The spring season typically begins on the first Saturday in April and ends in mid-June.


BAYS Travel

For ages 9 thru 18, NYS offers a BAYS (Boston Area Youth Soccer) Travel Program. Some key aspects of the BAYS program are:

  • Teams are organized based on player abilities, rather than by school
  • Tryouts are conducted in late spring to determine teams for the following year
  • Two practices per week and one game on Saturdays
  • Opponents will come from other towns in the western suburbs of Boston
  • 5 home game and 5 "away" games per season. Away games can be up to 30 - 40 minutes away



Coach Volunteers - Foundation of our Program


We always need volunteers to coach.  Coaching is fun and satisfying, and without them we have no program.  Coaching an intramural team typically involves one practice per week (one to two hours), one game each Saturday (one hour) and team administration, e.g. preparing game line-ups and organizing practices (forty-five minutes).  In return for your investment of four or five hours a week you receive a priceless bond with your child and his or her peers. You do NOT need to be an experienced soccer player or coach to volunteer for the intramural program!   NYS offers extensive support for both novice and experienced coaches. We will provide you with enough ideas for practices and games to fill many seasons of coaching. For more information or to volunteer to coach email the appropriate age group coordinator.
