Recreation Soccer General Information
The recreational program is considered a learning program. The philosophy is for players to develop a love for the game of soccer while learning new skills and having fun with new friends.
The recreational program is for all players, new or experienced, from ages 4-18.
Registration for the recreational level is open to all boys and girls to play. No tryouts are held in recreational soccer. The recreational teams are coached by volunteers, usually a parent of one of the team players.
 
Seasons
There are two seasons for recreation outdoor soccer each year,.
The Fall season which goes from September - November. Registration opens in at the end of May.
The Spring season which runs from March - May. Registration opens the end of December.
Each season has approximately 8-10 games.
U12 and older teams may be required to travel outside of RYSA to play games. If there are not enough RYSA teams in a season, the RYSA teams will be interleague scheduled to play against other neighboring Ga Soccer Clubs which would require the teams to travel for half of their games and the other half of their games would be played at RYSA.
We also offer Winter Indoor Recreation Soccer. This season goes from December - March. It consists of games only, no practices.
 
Team Formation
The teams are formed by a computer-generated blind draft based on the number of seasons played. All Under 10 (U10) and older teams will stay together for the Fall and Spring season, and in the Spring season, new players will be added to teams to fill in for players who do not return from the Fall. Under 6 (U6) and Under 8 (U8) teams are redrafted each season.
 
Practices/Games
Practices usually start one week before the first game. Under 6 (U6) and Under 8 (U8) teams practice once a week and Under 10 (U10) and older teams practice twice a week. The coach of the team decides the day(s) and time of practices.
Most games are scheduled on Saturdays starting as early as 8:00am and as late as 5:00pm. There may be a few games on Friday evenings after 6:00pm and some Sunday afternoon games starting after 1:00pm.
Recreation players should be ready to commit to attending the practice sessions during the week and also the games on the weekends for the entire season.
 
Mission
The objective of the programs at RYSA shall be to implant firmly in the youth of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and reverence so that they may be finer, stronger, and healthier youths and will grow into good, clean, and healthy adults. The objective shall be achieved by providing supervised competitive soccer matches subject to the rules of the US Soccer (USSF), United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA), the Georgia State Soccer Association (GSSA), and the Georgia Youth Soccer Association (GYSA). It is one of the foremost objectives that the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or winning the match is secondary and the molding of future adults is the true purpose of the program.
