The spring season has arrived, with a bit of a slow start due to how Randolph’s spring break fell this year. Thanks to all those affected by the return date uncertainty of some members of RSC’s training staff for your patience and flexibility as we moved from plan A, to plan B, and even to plan C as we sorted out staff coverage with the situation changing weekly for a while there.
As usual, the club conducted an anonymous on-line survey toward the end of the fall season. We continued to have a solid response rate this year. Club leadership spent time over the winter reviewing responses and the specific comments shared. Again, the general overall feedback was positive. Team specific feedback has been shared with the respective team leaders; so any issues can be addressed. As usual, you should receive your team’s spring training plan before April is done.

RSC’s Memorial Day Tournament preparations are in full swing. Thanks to everyone in advance for your support for this event, the club’s primary fundraiser. If it hasn’t already happened, you will be hearing through your respective teams soon about volunteer needs. Please help out in any way you can to make the tournament a success, as the funds raised are used to help defray club operating costs which are otherwise covered by the club fee we all pay.
Club leadership has spent a great deal of time working through all of the changes coming out of US Soccer’s Player Development Initiative over the past several months. If you have any questions, please check out the article on the club website (scroll down to see it). There is a lot of information available for anyone interested. Remember that, for 2016-17, teams will be formed based on birth year. Club leadership has posted a FAQ article to try to address questions, particularly with regard to changes for tryouts this time around.
Finally, a big “thank you” goes out to all RSC parent coaches and managers who volunteer so much of their time and talent! RSC teams wouldn’t exist without their efforts.
As always, please feel free to contact any RSC Board members with feedback. Anyone interested in getting involved in Randolph Soccer Club leadership is welcome to contact a Board member to learn more.
We look forward to seeing everyone on fields this spring!
On behalf of the entire RSC Board,
Randolph Soccer Club
