Affiliated Clubs

if you truly are the company you keep, then Newton Heath is very proud to be partners with the newly formed Evolution Soccer Club in Naperville.  Evolution DOC, Kieran Howarth, and our Technical Director,  Dave Pointon, have known each other for many years  and worked together on a few occasions. They also share two main passions --  Manchester United and possession style soccer. 

The precise nature of the partnership will evolve (pun intended) over time but, in general, we intend to help each other become better teachers and stewards of the game of soccer.  Initially, we will look to hold joint training sessions, clinics and camps.  Registration for our joint summer camp at Nike Park in Naperville is now open.  Please click here to view the camp description and to register.

Some of the benefits of our affiliation with Evolution include:

  • Administrative support
  • The opportunity to whiteboard new ideas.
  • The sharing of teaching materials,  such as coaching curricula and practice plans.
  • The exposure of players to diverse coaching voices -- you never know when a subtle difference in teaching style or point of emphasis will cause a player to have an epiphany. 
  • The scheduling of additional competitive events, such as out-of-season friendlies and quasi-tournaments.
  • The potential to combine rosters for tournaments.
  • The ability to create scale to secure better pricing for events.
  • The expansion of our respective coaching networks.
