U8 Vision program


The U8 Vision program is modeled on the US Youth Soccer player development initiatives.  As stated in the USYS age appropriate curriculum, "payers must spend the maximum time possible in contact with the ball and experiment by themselves". The emphasis of all training and games remains on fun, encouragement, and equal participation.

The U8 Vision program utilizes professional coaches for weekly practices and to oversee weekend games. All coaches will follow the provided RPSC U8 curriculum and will evaluate players throughout the season, making recommendations for team selection as players progress to the U9 level. 

Volunteer parent coaches provide a valuable role in team communication and individual game management. Volunteer parent coaches will take charge of groups of 6 players, their only responsibilities are communicating any scheduling changes to parents, monitoring safety of players, and ensuring players get equal playing time.
