Newton Kindergarten Soccer registration now open

Registration is now open for Newton Kindergarten Soccer. The fall program is for those children currently in kindergarten in 2017-2018. The games will be at Oak Hill Middle School beginning in September. To be eligible, children must live or attend school in Newton, including private schools. To find out more or to register, please visit http://kindergartensoccer.org/.

Newton Kindergarten Soccer, run by the Zervas PTO, is an introduction to soccer with a focus on making friends, learning teamwork, and developing confidence. Each spring, over 250 incoming kindergarteners and 200 current kindergarteners throughout Newton play in the league.

Players are grouped with other children who either live in the same neighborhood or who attend the same school for kindergarten, so that incoming kindergartners can meet future classmates.

Note that Lincoln-Eliot and Burr families generally participate in Garden City Soccer, and that Memorial Spaulding usually has its own program.
