Frequently Asked Questions
Radnor Soccer League (RSL) intraclub programs are designed to introduce our youngest players (PreK-2nd-grade) to the game in a fun, inspirational and structured environment. The coaching is mainly parent driven, and run by our professional RSL Director of Coaching who supports parents on the field throughout the season – including game days. For grades 3 and higher, RSL is designed for young athletes who love the game, want to improve their skills, and play in a competitive environment without the expected commitment level of travel soccer.
Our travel program is designed for the more serious player with three levels of travel teams; Premier, Black and Red. Our Premier teams commit to playing a 3 season schedule and while encourage players to participate in multiple sports, we expect those selected for our Premier teams to participate in all 3 seasons. Each travel team is led by a professional coach that's dedicated to providing a great experience in a highly competitive environment.
Regardless of whether your child plays RSC travel or RSL intraclub, Radnor Soccer Club is dedicated to improving every player's skills, and teaching the fundamentals of the game while having a lot of fun doing it.
