Our Philosophy

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” – John Wooden

This quote highlights the philosophy of RYSA Competitive Soccer. We focus on age appropriate player development and helping each soccer player become his or her best. If we are successful in accomplishing our primary focus, we believe that team success will follow.

Competitive: Registration

All RYSA fees are due at the time of registration. Fees for the 2015 Summer Competitive Season are $375 and include the following:

  • MYSA/USYSA league fees
  • Referees for league games
  • Park & Rec field usage fees
  • RCTC Dome rental for indoor training
  • Insurance
  • Coaching stipends and fees (Note: Teams will not have to pay any additional team fees for coaching stipends and fees.)
  • Coaching education

  • Administrative expenses relating to the Competitive League

Fees do not include:

  • Uniforms
  • Additional team-specific indoor training time
  • Equipment (shoes, shin guards, ball, water bottle, etc.)

Player releases will only be granted in accordance with MYSA rules. RYSA must receive an MYSA Voluntary Drop form, or in cases where a club transfer is approved, an MYSA Interclub Transfer form, before any refund will be given. Those forms can be found on the MYSA website.
