ABOUT THE RANGERS ACADEMY

Why Choose the Rangers Academy?

The River City Rangers' Academy program is designed for U6,  U7, U8, U9 and U10  Recreational players, boys and girls, who have an exceptional desire to improve their skills and their understanding of the game.

The Rangers Academy program is a STYSA- accredited Youth Academy, maintains a designation as a Recreational program, and as such all U6-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 with CAYSA/STYSA through the Rangers. All coaches in the Academy program are licensed, experienced and dedicated professionals – members of the River City Rangers coaching staff – rather than parent volunteers.

Our hope and  expectation is that players who participate in the Rangers  Academy program will look forward to trying out for a Select team when they reach U11, and the program prepares committed recreational players to advance to a Select level of play.


Mission

RCR’s Youth Academy Program is designed for U6, U7, U8, U9 and U10 players as a bridge between Recreational soccer and Select (competitive) soccer.  It is ideal for the young player who is taking particular interest in the sport of soccer and appears to be ready for a higher level of training as well as increased expectations and commitment. The  Rangers Academy Program's primary focus is individual player development; emphasis on team results (winning) is secondary.  The Rangers Academy serves as the foundation for and introduction to the Rangers’ philosophy of long-term, progressive development of the individual player.
