ACADEMY & RDS
The Academy program is a transitional program that helps players foster development while moving from a recreational program to a competitive program. These teams are formed based on participation at either a Spring or Summer Academy session and typically play up an age group within the recreational leagues to offer the players a bit more competition.
The Regional Development School (RDS) program is a partnership with the San Jose Earthquakes for us to collect all the very best players together at each age from within the surrounding area to create additional opportunities for players. Players will remain with their existing teams, but will just have additional training and some play dates or a tournament to compete against other SJ Earthquakes RDS teams from other Northern California areas.
Within the Folsom Lake Soccer League, both the Folsom Soccer Club and Rancho Cordova Soccer Club offer basic soccer programs for players anywhere from age 4 to age 19. The focus on this program is kids having fun playing soccer with their friends. Our programs try to keep the teams intact as much as possible over the years.
Folsom Soccer Club also runs a TOPSoccer program. TOPSoccer is a community-based play, training and team placement program for young athletes with special needs (abilities). The program targets those kids ages 4 and up who would like to play soccer, but are challenged by the traditional soccer environment, including those kids with physical supports and wheelchairs.
