Mini soccer is a popular junior boys’ sport offered at Tom Newby School. It plays an important role in the development of soccer and ball skills and prepares young players for senior soccer. Mini soccer is a non-league activity and players are encouraged to develop a love for sport and participation rather than pursuing a ‘win at all costs’ goal.
Mini soccer is offered to boys in Grades 1 and 2.
