Coaching Tips from NSCAA

Volunteer coaches are the backbone of RSA so we always like to provide information that will help our volunteers continue to do a great job for our players. The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) has terrific coaching resources on their site. Whether you’re an experienced coach or are just starting out, you know that it all begins with the fundamentals. Here’s a great link to get you started.

We hope you’ll continue to read the NSCAA site and other coaching sites so that you can be the best rec soccer coach in town! We also have a bunch of links on our Coaches page.

Thanks again for volunteering and supporting 1,300 rec soccer players in Ridgewood.

The U.S. will face Mexico again on September 18. How many goals will they score next? Watch the game on ESPN2 to find out!

RSA Opens the Fall Season

The 37th season of rec soccer in Ridgewood got off to an exciting start all around town yesterday. From pre-school to high school, Ridgewood players proudly wore the RSA crest and showed their skills to thousands of parents, siblings and friends. Like the game itself, RSA is a team effort drawing on the dedication of volunteers who coach and help run RSA. We couldn’t do it without our volunteers! We also have a small army of youth referees who keep our in-town games running.

Here’s a look at some of the action from our opening weekend.

Practices begin this week, led by pro trainers from Sports Domain Academy and the New York Red Bulls training program. Remember to check the Schedules page for your team’s practice time. And don’t forget to check the Alerts page for the most up-to-date information about cancellations due to severe weather.

Thanks again to all of our volunteers for making RSA soccer all about fun!
