The RRSO U8 Academy Program
Powered by Cleveland Force

I don't believe skill was, or ever will be, the result of coaches.  It is a result of a love affair between the child and the ball.
-- Manny Schellscheidt -- famous US youth soccer coach

Rocky River Soccer Organization and Cleveland Force Soccer Club have partnered to provide a professional soccer training program for children ages 5-8 years old living in the Rocky River community.  We have partnered with Cleveland Force to best prepare our young athletes for travel soccer at U9 within the Rocky River Soccer Organization.  C
