In-Town Intramural Program

The intramural program is an in-town program (no travel to other towns) for boys and girls from grades one through six.  Teams are organized by grade and children who are Newton residents or who attend Newton schools are eligible to play.  Games are played on Saturdays and practices vary by age group.  The goal of the intramural program is to develop player skills in a fun and engaging environment.  

The Fall 2018 season is scheduled to start on September 8th, 2018 and will run for 9 total weeks with no game on Columbus Day weekend. 

To maximize the benefits of our program for the the children, we approach age group development in the following manner:



We run an "Academy" style program in first grade which plays every Saturday for 1 hour, typically in the mornings.  Players are assigned a time slot which will remain unchanged each week (they will not be assigned to a team). Each session will be run by a professional coach and will be a split between skill training and small sided games.  The focus of our first grade program is to establish a solid foundation of ball skills for all players which will serve as their building blocks for years to come.

As with 1st grade, 2nd grade teams play every Saturday, usually in the mornings.  Sessions are typically 75 minutes.  The first part of every Saturday session is focused on skill development led by professional coaches who follow a US Soccer developed skill curriculum. The second half of each session is devoted to games coached by their NYS parent volunteer where the children can apply the skills they have just learned in a 4v4 game situation (no goalies) which will encourage many touches on the ball.

Each team will receive one 60-75 minute team practice session per week, lead by their volunteer head coach plus a Saturday game.  In addition, families who sign up for 3rd Grade In Town soccer are invited to drop by one of the TTP sessions at no additional charge.  Plaese look for these on the schedule (see below).  3rd grade games are 7 v 7 with a goalie.  Typically the team practice will be held at the local elementary school. An age appropriate curriculum will be provided to each coach to ensure key skills are being taught across each age group.

TTP:  In addition to this, NYS will offer a Technical Training Program ("TTP") to all 3rd and 4th grade players on a drop in basis. This free session will be run in the week by professional coaches from GPS. We will offer two sessions per week. For more information, please click HERE.




5th / 6th grade:
  Teams play a game every Saturday and have 1 practice during the week.  Games are 9v9 and are 60 minutes long (2 x 30 min halves).  In IM 5/6 we do expect our volunteer coaches to run 1 roughly 75 minute practice per week.  Practices will be run by your team's volunteer coach on a day/time/location decided by said coach.   Typically the practice will be held at the local elementary school.  An age appropriate curriculum will be provided to each coach to ensure key skills are being taught across each age group.
