2nd Grade Development Academy



Newton Youth Soccer is delighted to bring back the 2nd Grade Development Academy for the Spring 2024 Season

The supplemental program is designed to offer players in 2nd grade an additional opportunity to practice and play in a professionally lead environment. The 7 week program will provide 1 x 75 min evaluation session, 6 x 75min practice sessions with professional coaches, 2 x Sunday jamboree style game days in Newton and entry to the Danvers Invitational Tournament over Memorial Day Weekend.

The role of the program is to offer a local option for those players who want a bit more soccer in their lives, and will provide a more personalized approach to skill and team development whilst maintaining the fundamentals of the NYS vision; enjoyment of the beautiful game. The Development Academy will combine high level coaching with low pressure jamboree game days in order to prepare our players best for 3rd grade travel and beyond.

All players will practice at the same time and same location, but teams of 8-10 will be created to give an even spread of ability. Competitive jamboree games are crucial to this program.

PROGRAM REQUIRES 32 PLAYERS TO RUN.

Friend requests for teams will not be considered.

All games will all be at the same location in the mornings on Sundays. Jamborees will see each team have 2 games. Coaches will referee to allow maximum flow.
