From Coach McCarthy, Girls Varsity soccer coach
Hi, and welcome to the Girls’ Soccer program at Newton South High School. Moving from middle school to high school can be an exciting time. We hope that the Girls’ Soccer program will help make the transition a smooth one, as well as providing a platform to advance your soccer abilities and your love of the game……as well as building long-term relationships with teammates.
We offer 3 Girls’ Soccer teams within the program; Varsity, and two Sub-Varsity teams. Incoming 9th graders are eligible to make any of our three teams. We will have a spot for all incoming 9th-grade players who attend pre-season. During pre-season, we’ll determine where each player may best continue to develop their skills and knowledge of the game.
Please contact Head Coach, Doug McCarthy firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be sent a Player Profile Sheet to fill out and return. Further information and details will then be sent to incoming 9th-grade players and parents.
Here are some important dates: (Please note that dates are tentative at this point)
August 17-21, 5:00-7:30 PM: Alison Foley Pre-season clinic at NSHS. Former Boston College Women’s Soccer Coach will conduct the clinic for returning NSHS team members and incoming 9th-grade players.
August 23rd: Official start to pre-season for Girls’ Soccer. Tryouts and practices will begin on Monday, August 23rd. and continue up to the start of school. A detailed Pre-season Schedule will be available by the end of the school year.
September 9th: First day of school at Newton South
