Since 1993, Newton Kindergarten Soccer has been introducing children to soccer in a fun and non-competitive environment where girls and boys develop friendships, learn teamwork, and gain confidence. This program is a unique opportunity for children and families to become acquainted with others who are entering kindergarten in their neighborhood. In response to the community’s request, we have recently expanded our program with additional fields and capacity for more players.
Each hour-long session includes a half hour of soccer games and exercises and then a half-hour scrimmage, run by our volunteer parent coaches. Kindergarten Soccer is held on Saturday mornings, at Oak Hill Field, located at 130 Wheeler Street in Newton Center. Our program, held in the fall and spring, is open to all children enrolled in kindergarten in Newton, Massachusetts. Our spring season has an additional time slot for those children who will enter kindergarten the following fall.
This program provides an introduction to soccer, as well as an opportunity for children and parents to meet other kindergarten families in their school district. Please note that this is not a drop-off program. Parents or other caregivers must remain at the field where their child is playing. The fee is $80 per child, and each child must wear shin guards and bring a size 3 soccer ball. We offer a $10 sibling discount for multiple kids registered during the season. Refunds (minus a $10 administration fee) will be provided until the first game. If space is available after the deadline, there is a $25 late fee for registration.
Kindergarten Soccer is run by parent volunteers, and we are always looking for parents to coach their child’s team. No experience is required to be a kindergarten soccer coach. We will provide you with all the training you need, so please consider participating in this non-competitive and fun program.
Kindergarten Soccer has ben run by the Zervas Elementary PTO since 1993. Children who will attend Burr, Franklin, Lincoln-Eliot and Horace Mann tend to enroll in Garden City Soccer and Memorial Spaulding has its own program.
