Return To Play During Challenging Times


With the disruption of regular social interaction, in-person school, and normal routines, many families are experiencing unprecedented challenges trying to raise happy, healthy, successful children. Under these stressful circumstances, youth soccer offers an opportunity to safely engage in healthy fun and provide a sense of community for kids and families. Kids need fun, physical activity in their lives.

 

Good News: Children Learn Through Play


Our fun fall soccer program helps your child develop traits for success while learning soccer skills from our professional coaching staff. Youth soccer is a healthy, social activity where kids get to play, have fun, and make friends. Your child can improve physical abilities and soccer skills while building confidence, accountability, perseverance, and more. 

Step 1: Enroll Your Child in Fall Soccer


You’ll add a valuable element to your child’s development: A fun, physical, and social activity to enjoy as an alternative to screen time. For young children, youth soccer provides an introduction to team sports, fun physical activity, and an opportunity to develop balance, coordination, and fine motor skills important in any athletic activity. 

 

Step 2: Meet Your New Team In August


It's easier to socialize and meet new people when you share a common interest...soccer!  The U5-U8 teams will be trained by members of San Ramon FC’s Junior Academy professional coaching staff.  This valuable training will help your child learn proper techniques at an early age, providing both confidence and a foundation for success. Geography and schools are two factors used to form teams. You will be notified in early August about your team placement and schedule for the season.

Step 3: Make Practice A Priority On Your Schedule


To get the most out of youth soccer, attending practices is important. It is the best time to learn, build teamwork, and provide consistent physical activity. At practice, all players have a ball and get plenty of touches with it. Our coaching staff’s curriculum will offer fun opportunities to learn through play. Coaches will provide positive encouragement as new soccer skills and techniques are taught during the season.

Step 4: Enjoy The Games Responsibly


Encourage effort, applaud perseverance, and act with integrity during youth games. Kids should have fun, try their best, and work as a team. The fall season has 8-10 games on the weekends. A volunteer parent coach will act as head coach for weekend games. Players learn that they can always control their effort and their attitude, even if the game doesn't go as expected. 

Step 5: Attend Club And Team Events


Attending social events with teammates promotes inclusiveness and enhances teamwork. From club-organized events like Club Day and Earthquakes Soccer Nights to self-organized team activities like pizza parties and ice cream meetups, your child has an opportunity to socialize with teammates during the season. These shared experiences help build friendship and community with other families in the club.

Step 6: Use Our Online Content To Benefit Your Child


Your family will have access to quality content and expertise on topics like Soccer Parenting, Pillars of Character, and College Services (for academic-only and student-athletes alike). The goal is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to help your child succeed both on and off the field. Many of these content resources are available to you immediately.

Success: You'll See Smiles And A Desire To Play


To measure success, look beyond the win/loss column. Kids having fun, developing new skills, learning to be a good teammate, and striving to improve are good indicators of success and a positive soccer experience.  

Don't Miss Out On The Fun

 

It's more fun on the field. Your child won't benefit physically, emotionally, or socially if they don't play. Youth soccer can help busy parents reinforce the benefits of healthy physical activity, the importance of learning, and always trying your best. Our club's efforts to integrate eleven pillars of character into our programs will help your child learn the value of these positive traits while having fun playing soccer.
