Player Development Model

Player Development Model

At RVSC, we provide a player development pathway to assist players in every step of their youth soccer journey. As a club, we provide the tools and resources to move players from where they are to where they need to be. Using our age-appropriate training curriculum, our licensed training staff is able to deliver high-quality instruction to ensure players are learning and developing at the right pace.

Recreation: At the grassroots level, players are introduced at the Rec level. Beginning at Pre-K (age 4), our players begin to form their soccer foundational knowledge. For our younger ages, training sessions are developed around the main focus of fun as we want the players to learn to associate the game of soccer with having fun. We are pleased to announce that our recreation programs are offered year-round so parents can make the decision that is right for them and their children (U4-U13).

Aspiring Competitive: The program strives to prepare the recreational player who aspires to grow and join our competitive program. It combines group and individualized instruction from our professional trainers and coaches, maximizing the learning, all in a fun-filled learning environment (U7-U9).

Competitive: Players with experience in recreational, club,  town or school soccer programs look for the "next step" in their soccer experience by taking part in our competitive programs.  These programs offer: greater level of skill development, certified coaches, use of trainers, licensed referees, outstanding playing facilities, and broader availability of programs.  In addition, these programs provide the ability to participate in local & regional tournaments, advanced skill development programs, and premier leagues (U8-U18).

Elite: RVSC is committed to the development of its players. To meet the needs of the highest quality talent in our club, players who qualify will have the opportunity to play for an RVSC Elite team in their respective age group. These teams will compete against the best local and regional talent. These players are the best of the best in the area (U8-U18).

U23 - For players under the age of 23 and are looking to continue playing competitively, RVSC offers the U23 league. This league runs in the summer and is the ideal option for college players who are home on summer break.

Adult – To continue to move players along their soccer journey, RVSC offers adult players the opportunity to continue playing “the beautiful game.” Our adult teams will compete in local leagues including the NJSL, GSSL, Cosmopolitan leagues.

RVSC strives to provide excellent programs for any player regardless of where they might be in their soccer journey. At RVSC, there’s something for everyone. To express interest in any of our programs, please contact
