Levels of Play

 

We realize that our children are different sizes, maturity, and athletic ability and that these things change over time. The Roadrunners works hard to place all interested players, at levels of competition where the child can develop, have fun, be given leadership opportunities, and achieve success. Therefore, in each age group there may be as many as three or five different teams, each playing at a different level of competition in our soccer leagues. Over time, players may move across these different levels depending upon their development and effort put into soccer.

Following our annual player evaluation process, players are selected for teams that are established for the soccer season, to include Fall, Winter Indoor and Spring seasons. Any exception to this would be based on individual player and team needs.

The Roadrunners incorporates different levels of teams:

 

Roadrunner University 
Provides: 2 trainings a week fall and spring (1 indoor) and 1 day of interleague games. RR U is a way to start players out early in learning the basic footskills/soccer knowledge along with getting players used to being part of a proper training session. This is offered for our youngest players from U5-U7. (2014-2016)

Goalkeeper trainings 1x per week. This program is offered to all ages. We expect that these teams are young beginners or in older ages will compete at the middle to lower levels in their respective leagues and tournaments so they are allowed to develop at an appropriate pace. Offered at U7-U19.
