The RSC Soccer Journey

The Roswell Soccer Club (RSC) offers:
1. Recreational Programs for kids 2-18 years old
2. Academy and Select Programs for kids 7-18 years old
 
Kiddie Kickers: 2 & 3 years old
 
Kiddie Kickers is the first step in the RSC Soccer Journey. This program is designed to introduce soccer, increase motor development, and stimulate thinking in a fun and exciting way. The program will either be held inside a gym or outside on a grass field and led by a professional coach.
World Cup Soccer: 4 & 5 years old
 
World Cup is the second step in the RSC Soccer Journey.  This program will now start to build on the motor skills and techniques learned in the Kiddie Kickers class through fun activities and games during the training session during the week.  This program also introduces the players to games on Saturdays in a non-competitive environment. 
 
After the first two steps of the RSC journey, the programs begin to break into two categories; Competitive and Non-Competitive.  While you can make choices at later ages as to what category your son/daughter wants to participate in, if they are already living and breathing soccer, the competitive route might best suit that player.
