Registration for RSA Begins April 1

The snow is melting, the birds are chirping and RSA is planning for the fall 2015 season. Registration begins April 1. Be sure to sign up during the registration period to avoid late fees. It’s quick and easy!

RSA is proud to provide non-competitive, rec soccer for 1,300 players each year. From pre-schoolers to seniors in high school, we have a fun soccer program for you! And part of what makes it fun for the kids is being coached by their parents. We need your help to coach and organize our teams. No experience is necessary. It’s all about fun! Please sign up at least one adult when you sign up your kids.

We’ll have more details about the program in the coming weeks but, in the meantime, please mark your calendars for April 1 and hop on Community Pass to register.

Spring Break Soccer Camp Registration

RSA will offer our annual spring break soccer camp, in partnership with the New York Red Bulls Training Program, from March 30 – April 3 at Maple Park.

These camps are lively, fun and engaging for the kids. And since RSA doesn’t play in the spring, it’s a great chance for our players to get out there and sharpen their soccer skills.

Register by February 1 and receive $25 off per child! To register, click here.

RSA’s 37th Season Comes to a Close

Since 1978, RSA has made soccer fun for kids in Ridgewood. As we wrap up our 37th season and begin to prepare for our 38th, we want to thank all the kids and parents who make RSA great.

RSA wouldn’t be the thriving program it is without the enthusiastic support of volunteer coaches. If you volunteered this season, thank you! And if you didn’t, please consider joining us when registration for the fall 2015 season opens on April 1. We need lots of help to make lots of fun!

Coach Celebrates RSA Season in Style

As we walked the field at Somerville School on RSA’s final day of in-town games yesterday, we noticed a gathering of happy players and parents crowded around a table. Tables at soccer fields are rare so we took a closer look. On a bright green tablecloth, volunteer coach Ramon Hache had something special for his Division 6 girls team — an RSA cake from Carlo’s Bakery in Ridgewood.

Hache said he wanted to do something fun to acknowledge the team’s effort. “The girls work so hard during the season that I feel it is important for them to celebrate the season,” Hache said. “Besides, what kid doesn’t love cake?”

The kids, no surprise, were buzzing before the game even started. “I spotted them around the cake just staring at it. They were very excited to finish the game and celebrate,” Hache added. Hache is two for two. This was the second cake he’s bought in two years of volunteering for RSA.

Hache looked back on the season with pride. “It was an amazing experience,” he said. “These are very important, formative years. We are building the foundation for tomorrow’s superstars.”
