Welcome to the 2009/2010 RYSA Soccer Season. Our team is the Richmond Rangers and we will be playing at the U-11 level within the Richmond Youth soccer league.
This year, our focus will be on challenging the boys to learn the finer points of the game of soccer. We will be spending more time on fitness and running with the ball. We will be teaching some more strategy in their play. Working on moving to space and challenging for the ball.
We encourage parental involvement and hope parents will attend games and encourage their children and children’s teammates from the sidelines. The players usually respond very well when their parents are at the games. The only thing that we request: Leave the coaching to the coaches...encouraging words from the sidelines only.
Our intention is to rotate the players during game play, and we try to keep the substitutions and game time equitable. This is a policy that we have invoked over the past few seasons. If you are ever unhappy with our coaching or feel that your son requires something more than we are providing, please come and talk to one of the coaches in private.
Please try to have your athlete at the practices and games on time and dressed appropriately. Remember to bring water and always have your athlete wear their shin guards and cleats. Please make sure you have a timely drop off an pick up arranged for your son. We, coaches have other teams and duties, which makes it impractical for us to be waiting at fields for parents to arrive to retrieve their players.
