  • Ranger's Academy!
    The Rangers Girls Academy and Boys Academy Programs for U9 and U10 players is currently accepting registrations for the upcoming fall season.  

    The River City Rangers' Academy program is designed for U9 and U10 recreational players, boys and girls, who have an exceptional desire to improve their skills and their understanding of the game. Since its inception in 2004, the Academy program has been a cooperative venture of the River City Rangers and the North Austin Soccer Alliance (NASA). The program is accredited as a recreational program, and all U9/U10 recreational players are eligible to join. If at all possible, every applicant is placed on a team – there are no tryouts – and all teams and players are registered through NASA. But all coaches in the Academy program are experienced, dedicated professionals – members of the River City Rangers coaching staff – rather than parent volunteers. The expectation is that players who join the Academy program will look forward to trying out for a team in a select club when they reach U11, and the program prepares committed recreational players to advance to a select level of play.

Soccer Stuff

  • Kickin' it.
    Kick Off: Taken to start a game, to restart play after a goal has been scored or to start the second half or a new quarter. 
    Penalty Kick or PK: Awarded when a defender commits a penal or major foul within the penalty area. T
    Direct Free Kick: The ball may be kicked directly into the goal for a score by the player taking the kick. 
    Indirect Free Kick: A goal can be scored only if the ball is touched by one or more players from either team, after it is kicked into play and before it enters the goal. 
    Goal Kick:  When the attacking team last touches the ball before it crosses over the goal line, the defending team is awarded a goal kick. 
    Corner Kick: If a ball goes over the goal line and is last touched by the defending team, the attacking teams is awarded a corner kick.

  • How's your luck?
    The term unlucky is used whenever a player makes an incorrect decision with the ball. A pass back instead of a turn-and-go or a shot on goal when a cross was the better choice. It's the idea of pushing your luck instead of using your head...with negative results.  In soccer, there are so many decisions that have to be made rapidly. It's better to call a decision unlucky than to say 'you suck'.  The emphasis in development is to make the player think, not to beat him down. Save that mentality for sports where the coaches anger is redirected by the player to physically punish an opponent.   Lucky enough to be good. Good enough to be lucky. Good and lucky. (txsoccer)

  • You are sooooo good looking!
    The Beautiful Game is a nickname for association football, first said by the Brazilian footballer Pelé, although football commentator Stuart Hall is the only individual to have claimed to have coined "The Beautiful Game". In his youth, Hall admired Peter Doherty when he went to see Manchester City play at Maine Road and used the term "The Beautiful Game" to describe Doherty's style when playing. Consequently, he used the term "The Beautiful Game" in his commentary career later on in life which popularised the phrase. (Wikipedia)
