Stones River Futbol Club

Content

Stones River Futbol Club is committed to providing the best soccer experience for all of our young people.  Starting with the Fall 2017 season, we will begin offering three divisions of play across our club...

RECREATIONAL
DEVELOPMENTAL ACADEMY
SELECT ACADEMY

A full explanation of our Player Development Model can be found here.. 

The Player Developmental Model is a brief outline of how our programming can guide players from just starting out to competing at the highest levels of youth soccer.
 

Part of our Model is the additional of a third division - The Developmental Academy.  As a club, we have experimented with a number of models for helping players transition from recreational soccer to the "select" or "club" side of the sport.  Through that process, we have concluded that the transition is better served by taking a multi-year approach.  And beyond simply preparing players for select soccer, we also believe it is important to find new ways to challenge players that want or need a little more than a recreational program can offer.  

The result was the creation of our Developmental Academy.  

How will it work?
Players will still be assigned to a recreational team.  They will still play games at the Rotary Park on Saturdays.  They will still have a VOLUNTEER COACH assigned to their team.  They will also have a SELECT COACH assigned to their group.  The SELECT Coach will organize and design practice sessions to make sure players are being challenged to develop and grow in the game.  All Developmental Academy teams will compete against "appropriate" competition on Saturdays.  Appropriate competition may be "on age" or in an "age plus one" environment.  

Who are the SELECT COACHES?  
They come from our staff of nationally licensed coaches in our SELECT ACADEMY division.  

How do I sign up?
The same registration process will allow you to sign your son or daughter up for the Developmental Academy.  Simply select the division of your choice.  


DEVELOPMENTAL ACADEMY

Our Developmental Academy is open to all players eligible for our U6 to U10 age groups.  Our goal is to enhance player development by introducing players to a more challenging training environment.  We aim to do so under the supervision of licensed and experienced club coaches.
