Rotterdam’s travel program is one of the best in the Capital District. We strive to field competitive teams in safe environments where children and young adults can enjoy and grow through the game of soccer.
Rotterdam is one of the larger clubs in the Capital District and fields multiple boy/girl/co-ed teams at U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U14, U15 and U18 levels.
Travel Soccer is for those players who interested in playing at a higher level than rec soccer. The purpose of travel soccer is to further develop individual skill as well as teamwork through games against other area clubs. Player’s should possess a basic understanding of the game’s principles in which the coach’s prime objective is to develop them into a better soccer player.
Coach’s will require a greater level of practice time and sessions from their players in order to accomplish the above objective. Coach’s and parents will decide if a team will enter any indoor/outdoor tournaments. Some teams may travel out of state for a tournament, but most stay within the Capital District.
Travel soccer is generally considered to be an 8-10 month (Nov-June) commitment for the child and parent.
If your child has the skill and desire to learn, we want him or her. We at RUSC think our program is the best – but don’t take our word for it, try it for yourself!
