(3) LEAGUE OVERVIEW

The Real SC Academy League is a league for U4-U9 teams in the District 3 in Idaho offered by the Real Soccer Club. There are two conferences, one in Boise (Real Boise CF and one in Middleton (Real Middleton CF), with some crossover league games and a final joint Jamboree each season, Fall and Spring. Additional conferences will be created as the need in other areas grows.

Its goal is to provide an affordable place for teams to play under the latest player developmental guidelines. The RSC Academy League strives to adhere to the mandates of USSF in regards the new player registration by birth year and the player development initiatives via small sided games features. We were one of the first leagues in the state adopting the new USYSA mandates (in Fall 2015). In addition, this league allows teams from other clubs to register their teams, upon acceptance in it, under their affiliate of choice (US Club Soccer, IYSA etc).

(5) ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

FLEXIBILITY: Teams are welcome to participate in any other league they want and still participate in the RSC Academy league too. However, players should not play more than 2 games in one day.

HOME FIELDS: Teams provide their home field and therefore the schedule for their home games. This gives teams lots of flexibility. Teams without a home field, will be accommodated in other clubs’ fields.

REFEREES: The philosophy is that coaches are on the field just to help when it is really needed, for example to call fouls or when the direction of a restart is not clear and players maybe confused. We want players to try to manage the game/rules like in street soccer. This will  empower players and make them more creative and independent.

AFFILIATION: The league is open to all clubs, and independent teams irregardless of affiliation (USYSA or US Club).
