Soccer Club of Newington

Recreational Soccer Program

Important Note: Jewelry: It is the policy of FIFA, CJSA, USYSA and the Soccer Club of Newington, that no jewelry shall be worn, while participating in any of the programs of the Soccer Club of Newington. Pierced ear earrings seem to be the area of greatest misunderstanding. Covering the earrings with tape does not make them safe. Please be advised that your child will not be allowed to participate in practices or games unless jewelry is removed. Please plan accordingly when deciding to have your child’s ears pierced, so that the earrings may be removed by the start of the season. Medical Alert Bracelets may be worn but must be taped to the skin.

Also, The Recreation Divisions Do not keep scores or standings. The games are played for the children's enjoyment.

Dinomites is an interactive new educational soccer program for 3 & 4 year old children. A dinosaur is the most recognizable animal to a child under the age of 5 (hence the success of Barney). Experts in child development and education have designed a curriculum to introduce young players to soccer with an emphasis on learning basic motor skills.
This 5 week program is supported by an age appropriate, story based curriculum which takes players on a different adventure every week with Dino and Deana (the male and female soccer balls). The Dinomites soccer ball has touch points to help children learn how to control and move the ball.
Online support materials such as activity videos, certificates, picture frames and more, help to engage your child and your family in this interactive program.
At this age, experts stress the important role of the parent in early childhood development, so this program has been designed to support active parent participation. This approach fosters a memorable experience for the whole family and encourages support for the volunteer coach. Professional coaches from Soccer XS will train and support the volunteer coaches and involve parents by facilitating the Dinomites program with the activity curriculum and structure.
Register today for this exciting new Pre-K program and have your child join Dino and Deana on a memorable adventure that provides a positive and memorable first soccer experience for your whole family.
