The RASC has the following Vision for every member of its Club:
Outstanding Citizens, Student-Athletes and Soccer Players
Our priority will be to help boys and girls learn about being a productive citizen in their Team, School and Community. We value respect of self & others, honesty, integrity, hard work, commitment and discipline. We will expect this from all members of the Club.
Academically, our priority will be to help boys & girls to recognize that without a focus on achieving THEIR personal best in the classroom as students that their opportunities are limited. We will emphasize that in order to progress as a soccer player it will be crucial to ensure that their grades remain high and their behaviour while at school is at a standard of an outstanding citizen.
Athletically, our priority will be to focus on the Long-Term Athlete Development model with the understanding that some RASC participants will move on to excel in other sports. We will ensure that boys & girls develop a comprehensive athletic base that will enable them to value sport, healthy lifestyles, balance in training, rest & recovery and to be Active For Life.
Our priority will be to help boys & girls to develop the technical, tactical, physical and mental skills necessary to compete at the highest level they desire. We will focus on implementing the Canadian Soccer Association's Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model from the FUNdamentals Stage (U8 players) to the Active for Life Stage (18+ age i.e. playing, refereeing & coaching). By the time boys & girls graduate from the RASC Youth Program, they will be capable of competing at the College and/or University Soccer levels should that be THEIR desire.
