Fifty (50) years ago, the first tryouts were held for a Rose Tree Soccer Club team to play in the Delco Soccer League. Today we have soccer programs supporting participation at all levels of play and development including:
· 30+ Youth Travel teams (400+ boys and girls) representing RTSC in 5 different Travel Leagues (tryouts in process now);
· 600+ participants in Youth Intramural Programs in the Fall, Winter and Spring,
· Camps, clinics and developmental programs (including a TOPSoccer program for players with special needs)
· Women’s and Men’s Adult Programs with several hundred adults playing year round with participation at both Intramural and Travel levels.
This year we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary with focus on our roots and our mission; we will be adding a few special events over the course of the year – but much of the focus will be on highlighting, improving and celebrating the Programs that we have today. In addition, we will celebrate some of the upcoming global soccer events such as the Women’s World Cup and the CONCACAF Gold Cup (finals in Philadelphia late July).
Highlights will include RTSC Day with the Philadelphia Union and our 3v3 Live tournament in June, the Heather Mitts Camp in July, our RTSC Summer Camp and a new U9/U10 tournament in August, in addition to a number of special activities in the Fall; and we will have some special memorabilia (scarves, hats, magnets, etc.) which will be available for sale in the near future.
Stay tuned; one of our goals is to improve our communications throughout the Club, both outbound (to you) and inbound (hearing / listening to you). We are available on our website (www.rosetreesoccer.org), Facebook (Rose Tree Soccer Club) or twitter (@RoseTreeSC). Please feel free to give us your ideas and comments now, and throughout the year.
Thank you for participating in Rose Tree Soccer Club. Happy 50th ….
