The annual registration period for Ridgewood Soccer Association’s fall season will open April 1, 2014. Each year, 1,300 players from pre-school through high school put on an RSA jersey and take the field for fun, non-competitive play. Once again, we’ll have opportunities for youth referees and volunteer coaches to help keep the program running each week.
We’re also adding an additional group trip to Red Bull Arena this spring, so make sure you take advantage of that exciting event too!
The 2014 MLS season kicks off today with games all around the league. The Red Bulls start the season in Vancouver and return to Red Bull Arena next Saturday, March 15, for their home opener. Be sure to catch all the action on TV or at the stadium.
RSA takes concussion awareness very seriously, so we’re letting our current and future coaches know that Valley Hospital Sports Institute will be hosting a concussion awareness seminar on February 26 at 7:00 pm in the auditorium at 233 N. Van Dien Ave. The two-hour seminar will feature Dr. William C. Fox, neurosurgeon at The Valley Hospital and Steve Kennelly, assistant head athletic trainer for the New York Giants.
They will be discussing a variety of topics including concussion recognition, treatment, and management, second impact syndrome, post concussion syndrome, and return to play guidelines.
