The Soccer Club of Newington provides an opportunity for children to play soccer in a community-based environment that strives to promote personal and athletic development while learning valuable life skills. Using soccer as a vehicle, the club strives to develop each child's self-image, respect, talent, and sportsmanship, while having fun playing the game of soccer.
The Soccer Club of Newington is still in need of volunteer coaches. We are hoping to find people that care about children and can provide a safe and positive environment, which focuses on social-emotional development while using soccer as a vehicle to have fun. The phrase "it takes a village" pertains to our need for coaches so we can continue to provide vast soccer opportunities to the children in the Newington community. 
At this moment, we need one more coach for our Junior Rec Program - U8 Girls.
Connect with your child and your community
The top reason parents volunteer to coach soccer is to connect with their children in a new way. As the backbone of the soccer team, coaches are highly influential mentors and teachers in the lives of their players. Team bonding events can provide an opportunity to become closer to your own child. By showing your child a commitment to volunteering and to their passion for soccer, you will help motivate them to be generous and supportive in their own lives.

In addition, coaching soccer puts you at the forefront of building relationships with other coaches and parents with kids of similar age and gender. As part of your role as a coach, you are in constant contact with many parents throughout the season. Many times, lifetime friendships grow between the families on a team.
Teaching valuable life lessons
Every player’s individual development is our top priority. Yes, development includes the technical, tactical, and physical soccer skills a player learns, but it also includes the psycho-social life lessons that make our player's strong leaders and teammates. From quick and correct decision-making to a hard-working attitude, these attributes will extend from the soccer field into a child’s life. As a coach, you’ll be expected to display these characteristics in your coaching and mentorship as well. The good sportsmanship and respect a coach shows will resonate with each player, helping shape the way they respond to situations in their future.
Find a sense of pride as a coach
As you lead a group of children to success, you will find yourself feeling pride in their growth and accomplishments. As a coach, you will experience players overcome individual development objectives, from specific soccer techniques to psycho-social growth. And yes, you will also have an extra reason to celebrate on the days when your team wins games.
Fun and exercise
It is no secret that running around outside is good for our health. While coaching soccer, you often do not even notice how much exercise you are getting because you will be engaged with the children. This type of exercise refreshing after a long day of work and gives you the opportunity to not only connect with children, but with yourself. On top of everything, coaching soccer is FUN, which is sometimes exactly what we need.

The Soccer Club of Newington will be sponsoring a Top Soccer Program this Fall.

What is a Top Soccer Program?
US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities. The program strives to provide soccer opportunities (the opportunity of soccer) for players to develop at their own pace in a safe, fun, and supportive/inclusive environment.

Why do we need a TOPSoccer Program?
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program.
