ACADEMY TRAINING ONLY & ALL U6
Red Raider Soccer Academy sessions will be every Monday per dates listed above. Sessions will be held at the state-of-the-art, John Walker Soccer Complex located on the campus of Texas Tech University.
The Red Raider Academy staff will run all sessions. Sessions will last for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Throughout the 8-week process, players will work on all technical aspects of their game. By the end of the 8 weeks, our goal is that every player will have improved in passing, receiving, shooting, and dribbling. In addition, academy players will learn vital tactical knowledge that will improve their 1v1, 2v1, and 2v2 attacking and defending.
Academy Training & League: U7, U8, U9 & U10
For a young athlete, success is measured by the ability to take what was learned from the practice field and apply it in a game situation. By competing in an academy league the Red Raider Soccer Academy will achieve this process. Matches will be held over 4 Sundays at the John B. Walker Soccer Complex. Academy members will compete against other members of the Red Raider Academy League from Amarillo and Midland.
We will be falling in line with our governing youth body US Youth soccer and will be following their guidelines for players on field and field size for U6-U8. Our U9 and U10 groups will play 7v7. Please follow the link to find field sizes and player requirements.

It must be understood that the Red Raider Soccer Academy Program is competitive. It is important that our coaches as well as the parent(s) understand the continuous support each player requires. For the soccer players, we pledge to provide the necessary environment to improve their game.
Teams or players that drop out of league play without 30 days notice will forfeit the league fee ($50). RRSA reserves the right to select academy coaches that share similar developmental philosophies, and will not tolerate parent, player, or referee abuse. All participants that register for RRSA will also register for US Club soccer for league play liability and insurance. RRSA is not responsible for US Club soccer access outside of the RRSA league, as our RRSA league membership and trainings are separate.
