All fields are open
The MHSA and the Rattlers Soccer Program have formalized their relationship by creating the Rattlers Academy Soccer Club (RASC). There will be no new fees as a consequence of this relationship; however there will be a new look, new uniforms and the same unparalleled commitment from the Rattlers Soccer Program to the success of MHSA’s Club Teams.
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.
