Next Steps

3rd Grade Player Development Program

The Rockville Centre Soccer Club is offering Next Steps as a supplemental program for 3rd graders participating in Intramurals. The program provides our players with professional coaching to increase their technical and tactical knowledge and abilities. Two aspects of Next Steps are training sessions and match conditions. There is also participation in a Columbus Day Weekend tournamet in the fall.  The program has separate registration fees in the fall and spring so players may participate in the fall only, the spring only or the fall and spring.  Refunds will not be provided for cancellations due to weather.

  • Training Sessions - Training sessions will be conducted on a weekday with possible supplemental sessions on Saturdays. 
  • Games - Match conditions against teams from other NDP clubs that have partnered with the RVC Soccer Club. Match conditions will be played on Saturday or Sunday depending on field availability for the home team.

PLAYER RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Attend Next Step training sessions and scheduled match conditions.
  • Attend Intramural team training sessions and games.
  • Be prepared to have fun and learn while participating in a cooperative manner.

PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Ensure the appropriate behavior of your child
  • Ensure player’s attendance at all scheduled program and Intramural activities
  • Support all aspects of the program and the coaching staff
  • Consider volunteering as a team parent at training sessions and contact person for communications - a parental volunteer is needed at each training session and scrimmage
  • Follow appropriate sideline behavior during scrimmages. There is a zero tolerance policy for yelling at referees. Breech of this policy will result in forfeiture of remaining scrimmages

CLUB RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Provide professional coaching for all training sessions and scrimmages
  • Evenly distribute participation in scrimmages between eligible players

Registration is done online using the same system used for Intramural registration. Next Steps is found under the Development Program. Participants in Next Steps must also be registered for our Intramural program.

Your child will be assigned to a weekly 75 minutes training session. We will send you an email to confirm the training session details. We must have your email address in order to communicate with you. Player groupings and movement between groups for training sessions and games is at the discretion of the trainer.

While the program is open to all players, there is an expected level of commitment and focus on behalf of the players involved. The program is geared toward players seeking to advance their level of play. Attendance at Next Steps training sessions is critical for players to improve. Players must attend Next Steps training sessions, intramural training sessions, and intramural games in order to participate in Next Steps match conditions. The Club will try to accommodate all registrations but inclusion in the program cannot be guaranteed.

The Rockville Centre Soccer Club has been dedicated to providing quality training and instruction to the children of our community throughout our history. Please contact us at mail@rvcsoccer.net with any questions regarding this program.
