Fall 2019 FAQS

Travel and ITL Programs (Grades 3 – 8)

I’ve heard there are tryouts. Will my child get on a team? There are two player evaluations sessions per age group for the Fall 2019 season. These are run by RUSC using trained, neutral evaluators who don’t have children in the age group they are evaluating. In some cases, our evaluators no longer have children playing for RUSC. This helps us place players on the correct level team, but these are not tryouts. All players who register prior to the evaluation sessions and subsequent team placements will be placed on a team.

My child can’t attend player evaluations. Will they be placed on a team? Yes. Player evaluations are one component of player placement. But they are an important component, so we strongly encourage all players to attend both player evaluation sessions.

Does my player need to attend both sessions, or just one? Evaluations will be two unique field sessions--players should plan on attending both.

I understand that the evaluations are important for my child to attend. When are they being held? The sessions will be held in early June. Specific dates and time for each age group will be announced soon.

Can we sign up our child after player evaluations, and will they be placed on a team? Yes. However, there are maximum roster sizes dictated by the Middlesex Youth Soccer League (MYSL) and sometimes after team placements we have rosters with the maximum number of players assigned. If that is the case and your child registers after team placements they would be placed on a wait list. All players who are registered prior to the player evaluation sessions and team placement meetings will be placed on a team.

Why do you charge a late fee in June? As of June 24, 2019 there will be a $50 late fee assessed on all registrations. The fee is to ensure that players register early because RUSC is required by MYSL to place teams for the Fall season in early Summer. RUSC player evaluations and team placements require advanced sign ups so that we can manage the placement process efficiently and avoid late and change fees from MYSL. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Micro Program (Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 2)

Is this "real" soccer? Yes. The PreK/Kindergarten division is the entry level where the players are introduced to the game. The Grades 1&2 division will focus on continuing to develop skill sets and prepare players for the Grades 3&4 division, where they will be eligible to play travel soccer against other Middlesex League teams.  

Can my child only play for RUSC if they sign up when they are in PreK or Kindergarten? Absolutely not! While that division focuses on introducing players to the sport we welcome children to join at any age.

Can I request players to be together? Unfortunately, no.  This makes it VERY difficult to build teams.  We build balanced teams that include a range of skills and players from across Reading.  The teams are also balanced based on age.

Can I request coaches to be together? Unfortunately, no.  This makes it VERY difficult to build teams.  We appreciate you volunteering and wanting to work with friends/coaches you have worked with previously, but we don't want to leave teams without coaches. Our professional coaching staff will be working with all the coaches to make sure you are all comfortable working with your team and building your knowledge of the game.
