Thank you to Pete Ragone – President Emeritus
The NRSC thanks President Emeritus Pete Ragone for his years of service as Club President. Pete was instrumental in upgrading the travel program through the addition of a Director of Coaching, paid travel coaches, and emphasizing NRSC travel attendance at tournaments. He also focused on upgrading the skill level of all NRSC players by scheduling full season footskills and linking the NRSC with the CVSA premier program. Those are Pete’s major accomplishments, space does not permit a full list. In short, the NRSC is a top tier community-based soccer program from the recreation level to premier thanks to his guidance. Pete will continue to serve on the Board as President Emeritus. Thank you, Pete!
Thank you and a request from the NRSC Fundraising Committee
Dear NRSC Parents & Coaches—-on behalf of the NRSC Fundraising Committee, thank you for the tremendous turnout at the first ever NRSC End of the Fall Season Social at 3-Spot on Sunday! Not only did we raise money for the Club but it was a great time to meet other NRSC families and to see the kids have fun as well. We want to do more of this but NEED YOUR HELP! The Club needs volunteers to help with social activities/fundraising events and to generate new ideas as our support is very limited right now. Your involvement will make a difference on many fronts. As an example, the funds we raise helps offset Club expenses to keep our fees affordable. Moreover, the social interaction alone with planned activities enables our Club to become an even stronger community partner. Simply put, YOUR INVOLVEMENT HELPS US GROW!
Not sure if you are aware but we are a 501c3 Charitable Organization so your involvement can be tax favorable. The point is that YOU WIN on all fronts when you support the Club in any way possible. Volunteerism at NRSC will not be extra work….it will be fun & rewarding….I promise! All of this is pointed toward helping our kids get the best experience possible and to help the NRSC Board achieve its many goals to this end. Please sign-up now as a NRSC Volunteer at this Sign-Up Genius Link.
Thank you very much for your support!
New header policy for all NRSC players
As part of a concussion litigation settlement agreement with US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer, new header guidelines have been formulated at the national level and have been pushed down to local levels. On March 28, Ohio Youth Soccer North communicated their policy with the notification that it would go into effect immediately. At the NRSC Board meeting on April 12, the NRSC Board used the guidelines of these larger organizations to create an NRSC header policy. The following NRSC club rules for heading the ball are now in effect (as of April 12, 2016);
All recreation players in age groups U14 and younger are not permitted to intentionally head the ball during practices, games, or any other NRSC activity. Coaches are expected to enforce this rule at all times. In game situations, intentional heading will result in an indirect free kick awarded to the opponent at the spot of the infraction – or from the top of the goal area for infractions inside the goal area.
All travel players in age groups U11 and younger are not permitted to intentionally head the ball during practices, games, or any other NRSC activity. Coaches are expected to enforce this rule at all times. Travel players at the U12, U13, and U14 age levels will receive guidance from their coaches on the header policy for those age groups.
Posted club rules at Heasley have been updated.
