In-Town Fall Soccer
The Rockport Youth Soccer In-Town Program is a team-oriented soccer program for younger players attending 1st through 4th grade. All practices and games are held at Evans Field. This is a fun and recreational season focused on instilling a love of the game and foster a long-term interest in soccer!
Teams are co-ed and broken down into 2 age groups as follows:
- Grades 1 & 2 are G2.
- Grades 3 & 4 are G4.
G2 Teams play 4 V 4 ( no goal keeper)
G4 Teams play 5 v 5 plus a goal keeper
NEW PILOT PROGRAM:
RYS strives to make our In-Town program a fun and educational experience for all players. But in order to accomplish that goal, the RYS Board has decided to implement a PILOT program by creating one G4 team (3rd and 4th graders) that will compete in the Essex County Youth Soccer Association travel league in the G4 Boys division. The idea behind this is to offer some of the more advanced players a change to play in an appropriately competitive travel environment, while at the same time, keeping our In-Town G4 players more engaged in their games where scores and outcomes aren’t dictated by a few players, but rather by their team collectively.
We encourage any player that is interested in this higher level competition to register by June 28th AND also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that your child is interested in playing on the G4 travel team. If there are more players wishing to play than roster space available, evaluations will be held during the summer.
Water bottle – labeled with child’s name.
ABSOLUTELY NO JEWELRY ALLOWED!
