Frequently Asked Questions
Our Radnor Soccer League (RSL) is designed to make sure that our youngest players (K-2) get a great introduction to the game in a fun, inspirational and structured environment. The coaching is mainly parent driven, but RSC has hired two enthusiastic and knowledgeable individuals to support parents on the field throughout the season – including game days. RSL for grades 3 and higher, is designed for kids who love the game, enjoy being with friends and want to develop their soccer skills but in a less competitive environment. Our two RSL directors are set to ensure a successful season for all.
Our travel program is designed for the more serious and skillful players. Our Samba teams (RSC A-level teams) will be playing a 3 season schedule. We encourage our players to participate in multiple sports, but we expect those selected for the Samba teams will participate in all 3 seasons. We are allocating our best coaches to work with these teams. The Santos and Rio teams also will receive dedicated and inspirational coaching during the fall season, and playing on those teams will be a great experience in an appropriate competitive environment. If there are enough players from the Santos and Rio teams interested in playing in the winter and / or spring, we will absolutely facilitate and support such teams with dedicated coaches.
Regardless of whether your child plays travel soccer or in the RSL, RSC’s intention is to improve each and every child’s soccer skills, and teach them the fundamentals of the game while having a lot of fun with other kids from Radnor.

Travel Programs (any season): The full amount of fees for travel soccer are due at the time a player accepts an invitation to play on a travel team. Due to the nature of travel programs and the cost incurred for tournament registrations, uniforms, and professional coaches, Radnor Soccer Club is unable to provide any consideration for refunds after a player has accepted an invitation to play for a RSC travel team.
Radnor Soccer Club does offer payment plans and financial assistance for players in need of financial support. Consideration for assistance is handled on an individual basis and through the RSC Scholarship and Financial Aid Committee. All requests for financial assistance should be submitted prior to the start of the RSC program for which assistance is needed. For more information, visit the Scholarships and Financial Aid section of the RSC website.
In Radnor Soccer League, we try to accommodate all team requests. As a community program we understand that the primary goal is for our players to have fun with their friends. This is why our teams are structured around school grades.
For Travel Soccer, all teams are ability based, and it is not possible to accommodate change requests.
We are always looking for parents and community members to volunteer. You can find out more in the Volunteers section on this page.
