Who runs the Roseville Youth Soccer Club?
RYSC is a non-profit volunteer organization. We are not affiliated with any school districts or the City of Roseville. There is a Board of Directors that meet monthly to make the tough decisions and several volunteers who are needed to keep things running smoothly each season. Please consider volunteering to help the club. If you are interested , please contact the Club President.
What is the age requirement?
RYSC is great fun for children who will be 5 yrs old on or before December 31, 2016 (AND enrolled in Kindergarten for Fall) through 19 yrs old on or after 12/31/96. If a player is younger than 5 or older than 19 on these dates, they cannot play this season. RYSC follows the guidelines set forth by the State of CA Dept of Education for the minimum age for admittance to kindergarten.
When does the soccer season begin and end?
The season officially begins in the fall and practices begin in mid-August. Games will begin in September and end in November. Games are played on Saturday’s starting September 10, 2016 and practices are held 1-3 times during the week. (As set by the coach with input from the parents.)
What about uniforms?
RYSC sanctioned uniforms are mandatory to play. If you are a returning player you can purchase a new uniform or wear your uniform from last year unless you are moving up from U8 to be a U9 player. At U10 the uniform changes and you must purchase the age appropriate uniform. If you are a NEW player you must purchase the RYSC approved uniform. Please check this website for information on uniforms by clicking here.
Why do I have to give you a new picture every season?
The photos are used to make “player cards”, which the referees check before each game to verify that the player belongs on the team. We need current pictures of each player.
I don’t have an official copy of my child’s birth certificate; can I use the one the hospital gave me?
No. When a child is born the hospital gives the parents an “unofficial” birth certificate.
When will I be notified about my child’s team and coach?
Team assignments are finalized in July and the team lists will be given to the coaches at their first meeting at the end of July. Most coaches will begin calling their team members within a few weeks from that date. Practices cannot begin until the City releases the fields, usually in the 2nd week of August.
What is the difference between Recreation and Competitive level soccer?
Most soccer players in RYSC play at the Recreation level. For those players in age groups U9-U19 who are looking for more of a challenge and possess the skills necessary to compete at that level can tryout for Competitive teams. Those interested MUST attend Competitive level tryouts to be eligible to play. Tryouts are held in the spring of each year.
