Welcome to the Ridgewood Soccer Association! Formed in 1978, RSA offers exciting and fun recreational soccer programs for children, from pre-school to high school, in Ridgewood, NJ.
Our soccer league is not a club organization and there are no tryouts. Every child who registers during our registration period each spring will be placed on a team in the fall.
We offer in-town divisions, travel teams and a wonderful program for children with special needs. We also offer youth referees an opportunity to officiate rec soccer games. Each year, over 1,200 children participate in RSA. We conduct training and non-competitive games every fall, from early September until mid-November. Players return year after year as they improve their skills, make new friends and enjoy the game of soccer.
Mission Statement: The Ridgewood Soccer Association (RSA) is a recreational soccer league dedicated to promoting the game of soccer in the Village of Ridgewood New Jersey. We believe membership in the RSA is a family affair and the success of our organization is based on the support and volunteer efforts of our member families. Club business is conducted according to our bylaws by a volunteer board that is open to all member families and provides opportunities to actively participate.
The aim of the RSA is to provide the children and young adults of Ridgewood, a quaity soccer experience, learning opportunities, age and skills appropriate training – all while maintaining a fun and enjoyable sporting experience.
