RCA Rowayton Youth Soccer Starts
September 19, 2017
One event on January 1, 1970 at 12:00am
The 2017 Rowayton Soccer season expects over 300 players improving their skills and enjoying friendly competition. Rowayton Youth Soccer is a recreational community soccer program run by volunteers for children from 4-18 years old and is running for 10 weeks from September 9th through mid-November. We have five age groups: 4-5 year olds; 6-7 year olds; 8-10 year olds; boys and girls middle school teams, and a high school team(s).
While games are certainly competitive, recreation is our priority and all play occurs locally in Rowayton (except for middle and high-schoolers).
Rowayton Youth Soccer is excited to announce that fall 2017 will mark our second season with practices run by a premier professional training organization. This year we have partnered with SoccerViza. SoccerViza is run by Joe Funicello and Chris Laughton, both Norwalk natives and great influences on the Norwalk soccer scene. Partnering with SoccerViza fulfills a key program aim of continually improving Rowayton Youth Soccer. While we maintain our recreational program status, we are committed to offering Rowayton families an excellent development option with strong community ties.
See the registration site for practice and game schedule detail by age. Please note that registrations received after August 15 will be subject to a $25 fee.
Note: last year we saw benefit to practices divided by girls and boys. We will seek to continue this in 2017. Depending on the number of girls and boys registered, we will also review dividing into girl’s and boy’s teams for the Saturday games. More to come as registration progresses.
Don’t miss Dick Packer’s summer soccer camp. Dick is a local soccer legend, having played for the US National team in the 1956 Olympic games. This is the 39th year Dick is running his Packer Summer Camps program. This year marks the first year they will offer a Premier program for kids age 12-14. So, the program now has options for kids from 3-14 years old. More information can be found on the Packer Soccer Camps website.
Thank you and here’s to a great Fall 2017 soccer season!

About the Rowayton Youth Soccer program
Rowayton Youth Soccer is a recreational community soccer program for children 4-18 years old. The program attracts more than 400 players each year and runs for 10 weeks from early September through early November. We have five age groups: 4-5 year olds, 6-7 year olds, 8-11 year olds, middle-school and high school. While games are certainly competitive, teaching soccer basics and sportsmanship are our priorities. The time commitment is limited to two days and a couple of hours per week; all play occurs locally in Rowayton (except for middle-school and high school divisions); practices are run as clinics by a professional trainer; and referees, scoring and team standings are limited to the four older age groups. Also, as a volunteer-based organization, we are always looking for parents willing to coach. Online registration will open on June 1. Registrations received after August 15 will incur a late-fee of $25 and will be accepted on a space-available basis only.
