Our Philosophy

RYSA’s Rec soccer program is designed to teach players soccer skills, teamwork and sportsmanship in an environment where participation and fun are the focus, not competition. The philosophy of the RYSA Recreational Soccer program is to ensure that all Rochester area youth have the opportunity to learn the game of soccer. The program provides a low-cost, safe and structured soccer experience for all area youth in grades 1-12 and can serve as a starting point before moving to more competitive programs.
