Collaboration with Round Rock Parks and Recreation
The Galaxy Soccer Club has begun collaborating with the City of Round Rock's Parks and Recreation Department with the goal of offering affordable youth soccer at every level of competition, from recreation to Select, to the Round Rock community. This collaboration brings together RR PARD's new Developmental Soccer League (U4-U10) and Galaxy Soccer Club's Select program (U11-U19), as well as Galaxy's new Academy program for U9-U10 players, which will kick off in the Fall of 2018.
As part of this collaboration, Galaxy will be providing assistance to the RR PARD Developmental Soccer League, including curriculum support, coaching education, extra training sessions, and referees. In return, Galaxy will become a privileged user of the Old Settlers Park soccer fields, which are managed by RR PARD.
The RR PARD's Developmental Soccer League is poised for a great inaugural season, with almost 200 players registered for the Spring. In support of the league, members of Galaxy's coaching staff, led by our Director of Coaching, Richard Casseus, held a coaching clinic for the RR PARD's volunteer coaches at the Clay Madsen Recreation Center on February 22. More than 20 coaches were in attendance at the clinic, during which the coaches reviewed the curriculum for the U4-U8 age groups. Morale was high at the clinic and everybody is eager to have a successful first season.
