As US Soccer continues to grow and expand its initiatives, Roseville Youth Soccer will embrace the uniform framework that U.S. Soccer has built, to provide consistent messaging and education for our parents, players, coaches and referees.
We teach children how to play and enjoy the game of soccer in a safe, age appropriate environment with the understanding that the development of the player and the enjoyment of the game must always come first. We focus on the intrinsic motivation. After all, every child wants to win. The point is, this does not have to happen at all costs.
The US Soccer Player Development Curriculum is split up into 4 parts:
Styles & Principles of Play
Age Group Organization
Concepts and Guidelines
Planning & Training.
This framework encompasses the 2018 Grass-Roots Coaching initiatives such as the Play-Practice-Play approach (Foundation Phase) and the revised 2018 concussion protocols. (visit the Norcal Premier Concussion Protocol Page to learn more)
Aligning curricula with international standards used by the world’s leading soccer nations so that kids in the United States are developing in an environment similar to those playing in Germany, France, Spain, etc.
The long-term development of a young soccer player will- and must always outweigh a win. More importantly, we focus on enjoyment. Kids won't develop when they don’t enjoy what they are doing. Enjoyment is the prerequisite that enables performance and success!
Children do not learn in the same way as adults, especially when the
learning process involves both intellectual and physical activity”
(US Soccer Curriculum, Part 3, p37)

The Roseville Juniors Foundation Program is a program run by our licensed, professionally trained coaches with the help of volunteer coaches and designed to teach the fundamentals of the game for U6 through U8 boys and girls. It runs in the Spring and Summer, supplemental to the Fall recreational league.
RYSC offers a wide variety of development camps for all age and skill levels throughout the year and are taught by Andrew Ziemer and his highly credentialed staff.
The game can't go on without Referees and we need a lot of them for a club our size. Anyone 13 years and older can become a certified Referee. It's a great way to learn more about the beautiful game, earn money, and give back to the community.
Many players are intimidated by the idea of Competitive soccer. the RYSC Rec2Comp program helps any player willing to work hard and apply themselves to achieve their goals
