Progams

RRSO offers soccer programs for 7-15 year old players.  Scroll down or create an account for registration options.

For our youngest players, age 7 and 8, RRSO offers the RRSO Academy.  The RRSO Academy is a player development program that introduces these players to soccer.  The Academy includes a weekly training session and "Play Days" including opportunities to compete with players from other communities.  In addition, the Academy includes options for league and tournament play.  Players learn basic skills of the game through fun yet challenging activities under the guidance of professional coaching.  The RRSO Academy is a player-centered program based upon US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer's best practice guidelines.  The goal of the RRSO Academy is to expose players to "soccer problems" and introduce tools for the players to solve those problems.  Players who can solve soccer problems on their own will be the most successful soccer players at the older ages.  The Academy is for boys and girls who intend to play competitive soccer.  Players must be able to follow instructions and stay engaged in activities will receive a refund, and will be invited to try again next season.  Registration for 7 and 8 year olds to join the RRSO Academy is open through May!

For 9-15 year old players not yet in high school, RRSO offers competitive travel soccer.  After a try-out and evaluation process, players are placed on age-appropriate/ability-based teams to participate in the Ohio Travel Soccer League.  As a parent-volunteer based program, RRSO teams are coached by parent-volunteer coaches who complete minimum coach education, First Aid training, and concussion protocol instruction.  RRSO travel teams compete in two seasons of competitive travel soccer consisting of 8 games in the Fall and 8 games in the Spring.  RRSO teams practice two times each week with games on Sundays during the season.  Players who are not placed on a team following tryouts and evaluations will receive a refund, and will be invited to try-out again next season.  Registration for competitive travel soccer is open but players who register after tryouts are conducted are placed on a waitlist.  RRSO makes an effort to place waitlisted players on teams whenever possible unless there are no roster spots available.  There is no fee charged until a waitlisted player is placed on a team.

RRSO offers Winter Training for all of its competitive soccer team players.  In the off-season between the Fall and Spring travel soccer seasons, RRSO's winter training program is designed to provide additional training and technical skill development.  Winter training is offered to all currently registered competitive travel soccer players.

RRSO teams with the Rocky River High School soccer program and offers Summer Soccer Camps at no additional cost to our players.  The RR Varsity coaches organize and conduct the summer camps for girls and boys. 

Parental Guidelines

The RRSO wishes to create a family atmosphere for players, parents, and coaches. RRSO should become a place where everyone feels a part of the direction of the club and a sense of belonging and attachment to its mission.

In order to foster a positive learning environment, the following parental guidelines should be observed by our parents:

1. Be a positive role model! Show good sportsmanship and attitude towards the referee, the opposing team and their parents, the coach, and your fellow team parents, players and coach.

2. Support your child by giving encouragement and positive reinforcement. This support should not be dependent on winning or losing.

3. Your child is playing soccer. They must have their own goals and reasons for playing. You should help them establish and achieve goals but be careful not to impose your own standards and goals. Remember they are the ones playing.

4. Make every attempt to foster your child’s self-image. This will encourage quicker learning and increase their enjoyment. It will be natural for a player to have fear of failure and question their abilities or position in regard to their peers. As long as children give their best, they must be made to feel like winners, no matter the outcome of the game.

5. Mistakes are part of the game - part of learning. Help your child to understand and accept them both in their own personal play and that of others on their team.

6. Let the referee ref!! Players tend to mirror your actions, feelings, and reactions. They have enough trouble with learning the game under pressure, making decisions, selecting the right place to run, pass, etc. They do not need to worry about whether or not the ref is doing well or “against” their team.
