Rainier Soccer Alliance Elite and Select Program

Introduction

Over the years, we have enjoyed many successes with our involvement in youth soccer. We have learned one key ingredient of success is clear consistent communication between club, teams, coaches, players, and parents. This agreement is one way of explaining in detail the expectations of RSA Elite, its staff and members. It will help identify some potential problem areas and at the same time answer questions about the club decision making process. As you have committed to become a member of RSA Elite please take the time to read the following pages carefully.

RSA Elite Objective

RSA Elite is educational and shall embrace the following goals: To teach and develop a "love of the game" of soccer among our members, train and develop players, coaches, referees and administrators for the betterment of the game of soccer and develop through the game of soccer; sportsmanship, physical health, mental alertness and fair competition.

The Club and the Team

Members of RSA Elite agree to put the club ahead of the team. When decisions are made regarding conflicts between the club and a particular team, the club will come first. Club decisions will be made by consulting with the Director of Coaching and a majority vote of the Board of Directors. The decisions of the Board of Directors will be final and without appeal.

The Team and the Individual

Members of RSA Elite agree to put their team ahead of the individual player. If conflicts arise between the team, a player or parent, the team coach under the direction of the Director of Coaching will be responsible to make decisions for the good of the team. These decisions will be made after gathering all relevant information and consultation with those involved. The decision of the team coach will be objective and based on his/her best evaluation of the facts. Once a decision has been made it is final and without appeal. Players and parents must agree to abide with the final decision.

Team Tryouts

Team tryouts will be held annually for players who meet the age requirements for the team in question. Each prospect will be given an opportunity to make the team. The club will announce team tryouts to inform the public of specific tryout dates and times. The team reserves the right to call off annual tryouts if the team coach determines tryouts unnecessary. If the team coach determines it necessary, additional tryouts may be held during the season at any time; qualified players not committed to any team may be added to the team at any time.

Playing "Up"

Teams follow the rules of the leagues they play in. Every player in a lower age is allowed to play “up” at most three times during the fall and three times during the spring seasons (six times per year). It must be for another RSA Elite team and can only be for an older team or one in a higher level.
