General Overview of the Travel Program

Evaluations for our Travel Season are held in the spring. Players are notified of team status by the middle of May.  Depending on the team - practices start at the end of June/beginning of July.  Most teams practice twice a week in the evening during the summer and cut back to once a week when school starts.  Some teams will participate in tournaments in August to warm-up for the season. 

The league games start the Saturday after Labor Day and run through the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  Girls' teams play on Sunday - it is not uncommon to have games on either day, though; and some times both days on some weekends. 

All teams will participate in a tournament over Columbus Day Weekend.

Some teams continue and play indoors in the winter and will participate in leagues tournaments in the spring - this is up to each team.

Evaluation Expectations

  • Players are expected to attend both evaluation sessions.  Participation in only one session may hinder the ability to accurately assess skill level and impact the placement of a player.  Any player unable to attend evaluations due to extenuating circumstances must still register and contact Dana DeMinico at [email protected] or Jon Consadene at [email protected] prior to the evaluation dates to make alternative arrangements.
  • RTSC will make every effort to field as many teams as we have competitive players and coaches; however we may not be able to place everyone on a team. Players will be notified of their status prior to Memorial Day Weekend.
  • Players need to wear shin guards and bring a soccer ball and water bottle to evaluations.  Players are requested not to wear travel team uniforms or bring player team bags to the Travel Evaluations.

Get prepared for the new season in less than 30 minutes

 

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion.

 

Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.

 

What Will I Learn in this Training?

This course will help you:

 

•Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,

•Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,

•Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and

•Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.
