What is my player's age group?
US Youth soccer has mandated changes to player age groups for the 2016-17 seasonal year and beyond

Beginning Fall 2016, RYSA  Pre-Academy, Academy and Select teams will be organized by Calendar Year where players born between January 1 to December 31, as opposed to the School Year where age groups are based on the August 1-July 31 dates, will be placed into one age group. With the change, players will still be allowed to "play up" and play in an older age group, based on an individual player's physical, emotional and skills development. The club will continue to place players on teams based on age appropriate level of play and ability.

For the 2016-17 seasonal year, our age groups will align with the following Calendar Year guidelines.

The RYSA Academy Program

The RYSA Academy Program operates as a member of Georgia Youth Soccer Association’s developmental soccer program for U9-U12 boys and girls. The idea behind Academy is to give young players advanced coaching and a higher level of competition, alongside other players and parents who want to see their child develop his/her potential in a fun soccer environment. Academy philosophy is playing to learn while minimizing the pressure of playing to win.

The Academy program is an intermediate step to full sided select soccer which starts at the U13 year. All RYSA Academy coaches are licensed and experienced in preparing players of this age for the next step of select soccer. Training activities are devised to help each player improve technically (skills), tactically (as a member of a team), physically (coordination & fitness) and psychologically (mental development).  The Academy focuses on the complete development of each player and education of the parent on the philosophies of developmental soccer. 

If you have any questions, please email our Academy Director, Keion Yearwood at keionyearwood@gmail.com
