Ramona Futbol club offers new recreational soccer league

Ramona Futbol Club (RFC) announces a new recreational soccer league that will coincide with its Arsenal FC competitive player development.

The new program is patterned after soccer in Germany and Brazil, where  most young players do not play on a large soccer field of 11 vs. 11 until age 14, said RFC.

In the new program, players will train and play small sided games that will allow each player more time with the ball and result in better development of fundamental foot skills and strategy, RFC explained.

Players under the ages 5 to 7 will play 3 vs. 3 games, under 8-10 will play 5 vs. 5, and under 11-14 will play 7 vs. 7. High school participants  will also play 7 vs. 7.

“This is a great program for a player who wants to exceed basic recreational soccer and, if their skills develop, they can transition smoothly into the competitive program,” said Dave Parson, Arsenal soccer coach.

The RFC Gunners and Junior Gunner registration fee is $85. The program includes Tuesday Skill Clinics and training with a professional coach, Thursday team practice, and games on Saturdays. Parent coaches are needed to run Thursday practices and game days.

Games will be held on Ramona Unified School District fields and will start Saturday, Aug. 3  and run through Oct. 26.

More information and registration is available at www.RamonaFC.com, or visit RFC registration booths from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 22, during the Ramona Summer Solstice 5K at Olive Peirce Middle School, 1521 Hanson Lane.

Registration will also be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 23 and July 13 in the Big 5 parking lot, 1312 Main St.
