Regional Future Elite Programs
For Boys & Girls ages 4 to 9

The main goal of Boston Bolts is developing youth players. Experts agree that the most impactful soccer development begins before the age of 10. Many kids under 10 don’t receive proper instruction from qualified coaches. For this reason, our Future Elite Programming is dedicated to properly educating and developing very young players.
An age-appropriate learning environment is key in developing our next generation of Bolts athletes. Our professional staff ensures that players learn the proper fundamentals using fun games, drills and activities to ignite a passion for this great game!
All players are welcome and will train in small groups broken up by age and ability so they may learn at their own pace. 
These clinics are offered at several locations throughout the area at $75 per session.

Chris Payne
NE Soccer Journal D2 Men's Coach of the Year

Congratulations to our own Boston Bolts ECNL U19 and USL2 Coach, Chris Payne. Chris is in his 2nd season as Head Coach at Assumption and we want to congratulate him on his record-breaking year and wish him continued success!!

(from Jonathan Sigal and Kyle McCarthy at NESJ)
Assumption entered the Northeast-10 postseason tournament with modest aspirations. The fifth-seeded Greyhounds had never navigated their way through this postseason gauntlet and they were not favored to do so this time, either. Instead of believing the brackets, Assumption embarked on the most magical fortnight in program history. Payne and his players defeated LeMoyne, American International and Saint Rose to lift the NE10 tournament title for the first time. This group compounded that historic victory by securing the Greyhounds’ first NCAA win with a double-overtime result over West Chester (Pa.) in the opening round. Payne led Assumption to a 13-8-0 mark on the campaign, but his role in steering Assumption to unprecedented postseason success made this a season to remember in Worcester.

With over $7700 raised so far, the fundraising is off to a great start. Bolts 2007 ECNL team is still at the top of the Leader Board! Who can catch up with them?
