Newton Youth Soccer has a few options to give you additional support to coach your team.
Have a Professional Coach Train Your Team
In addition to the practice plans above, NYS coaches can have a professional coach lead your team through a practice. This is a great way for the NYS coach to observe and learn how a professional would run a practice session. You can use the session to focus on anything you want, perhaps something you see the team needs to improve on, but are struggling to communicate and show how. This is not a drop off session, coaches should participate like a normal practice.
Each BAYS team is allowed to sign up for two 75 minute training sessions with a MPS coach. These sessions will take place at Highlands Field B
and will run from 4:00 to 7:45pm. If you want the MPS coach to work on something in particular, please include it in the "What to work on" section. We have allocated capacity for 2 sessions per season per team. Once we have the initial requests, there is the possibility that you can sign up for more.
To see available times and sign your team up use the online form that can be found here.
