Winter Soccer Training for Kids

If your kids want to train during the winter, it can be challenging to find them indoor soccer options. Here’s what I’ve found in the Newton area.


Soccer on the Mat

Soccer on the Mat is a unique and innovative soccer and yoga program designed to empower young girls (ages 11-15) while improving their soccer fitness and technique and decreasing soccer specific injuries. The curriculum created by Coach Alison Foley focuses on building and celebrating the physical and emotional growth through a variety of drills, poses and conversation. Each class will strengthen both the body and mind of the soccer athlete while also providing opportunities to build confidence and body awareness through teamwork and mindfulness focused activities

Coach Foley supervises and trains each Soccer on the Mat teacher who is uniquely skilled in both yoga and soccer instruction.
