2015/2016 Winter Development and Futsal Program
Updated date: Friday, October 16, 2015 10:03 AM

We are excited to bring back our Winter Development and Futsal Program which will be held at the Randolph Macon Academy Middle School gym. This is a great opportunity to stay active and have fun playing soccer during the winter months. Futsal is normally a 5v5 soccer game played on a basketball court. The hard surface, small goal and low-bounce ball help improve ball control, footwork, passing and shooting, which will show in your outdoor game! The rules are similar to outdoor rules and are easy to learn.

This program is open to all U7-U14 players and will cost $60 per player. The program will consist of 8 sessions (90 minutes) that will be held on the following weekends:

  • January 2/3, 16/17, 23/24
  • February 6/7, 13/14, 20/21, 27/28
  • March 5/6

Space will be limited to 18 kids per session and tends to fill up quick so please register soon. We will publish a schedule shortly after we close registration.

We will schedule the U7-U9 ages to play on Saturday morning, the U10-U14 girls will play on Saturday afternoon and the U10-U14 boys will play on Sunday afternoon. This schedule may change to accommodate the number of registered players in each age gender and age group.

Each session will be split into 2 sections:

1. Technique (20-30 minutes): This section will offer considerably more “touches” on the ball and more direct coaching instructions. We will focus on building a stronger technical foundation during this time.
2. Game play (60-70 minutes): Team competitions naturally elevate the intensity of play and allow the game to be the teacher.

The cost per player and amount of playing time per player is the best available for any winter soccer program in the area.

Offside Rule Explained

Are you a coach or a parent new to the game of soccer?  The Offside rule can be one of the hardest to understand.  Click here for an explanation of the law as well as a short video to help!

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:

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.

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.
