FRSA Soccer Showcase

Saturday, May 30

Soccer Showcase game schedules are posted!

Teams in U10, U12, U14, and SRC participate in fun, tournament style games based on standings.

FRSA teams in U6, U7, and U8 will each play two minigames!

U6 - Two eight minute halves, five minute halftime.

U7&U8 - Two ten minute halves, five minute halftime.

Additional activities will be planned, including an inflatable bounce house! We are hoping to have a fire truck stop by a couple of times to help players stay cool in between games.  The players love playing in the spray from the fire hose!

We will also be drawing for our Soccer Showcase raffle in the afternoon.  All envelopes with raffle tickets and money must be turned in by 1:00! The drawing will take place in the afternoon.  Winners do not need to be present to win!

Food will be available to purchase from the Concession Stand, as well as from Fox's Pizza!

Don't forget to stop by the registration table to register for the Fall 2015 season! This is your chance to register before the start of busy summer schedules! Remember, ALL requests must be made during registration. 

The popular British Soccer Camp is returning August 10-August 14!  A representative will be at the Soccer Showcase for registration.

FRSA ROX Travel Soccer Tryout Information
Updated date: Wednesday, May 27, 2015 3:04 PM



FRSA ROX TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS - 2015-2016 SEASON

FRSA holds tryouts each spring for girls and boys travel teams, U9 and older.  The purpose of the tryout is to thoroughly evaluate each player in order to form teams for the following season. Player development is the focus of our program. Individual player development is maximized when the player is with a team that meets her/his level of competition and training.

Updated Jewelry Policy
After much discussion and research, the FRSA board has decided that FRSA will now follow the FIFA Law on jewelry, which states that all items of jewelry are strictly forbidden and must be removed.  Using tape to cover jewelry is not acceptable.  Please be aware of this when registering your children for soccer and time new piercings at least 6 weeks prior to the beginning of the season.

Are you a parent new to the game of soccer?  The following guide is a great resource to introduce you to the world's most popular sport!

Soccer - A Sideline Guide For Parents





Each letter in ROOTS stands for an important part of soccer that we must respect. The R stands for Rules. The first O is for Opponents. The next O is for Officials. T is for Teammates, and the S is for Self.

R is for Rules - The rules of soccer are what allow us to keep the game fair. Respect for the rules is important, even when it’s possible to break them without getting caught.  Breaking the rules dishonors the game, even if it means that we win.

O is for Opponents -  Without opponents, we could have no game. A good opponent makes us do our best. Sometimes your opponents are friends of yours.  Respect your opponents, and remember they are out there to have fun just like you.  

O is for Officials -  It is very important to respect officials. Often, this can be the most difficult part of Honoring the Game, so we need to remember to keep it as a focus when we play. Officials have been selected and trained to enforce rules, and they have a very hard job. Without the officials the game would be unsafe and unfair. Officials are not perfect (just like coaches, athletes and parents!) and sometimes make mistakes. However,there is no excuse for treating officials with disrespect when they make errors.  Show respect for officials, even when you disagree with the call. 

T is for Teammates - A big part of soccer is the team. Being with your teammates should be fun. Later in life you will often be part of a team, and it is important to learn to work together. I hope you feel a commitment to each other as teammates and that you will agree to always play as hard as you can in practice and games. Please encourage and support each other on and off the playing field.

S is for Self -  Some people only Honor the Game when their opponents do, but it is important to Honor the Game no matter what the other team or its fans do.  Be the kind of player that Honors the Game even when others aren't because we set our own internal standards. And we live up to them no matter what. We have so much respect for ourselves that we would never do anything to dishonor the game.
Heads Up - Concussion Training Video

Front Royal Soccer Association is committed to the prevention, identification, evaluation, and management of concussions.  Concussions, also known as traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a disturbance in brain function caused by a direct or indirect traumatic blow to the head.  An athlete who has sustained a concussion may present with a variety of non-specific symptoms that may or may not be obvious to the athlete, coaches, or medical staff. 


All coaches and parents should watch the following video on symptoms of a concussion:
