Welcome to RAYSA soccer!

Welcome to Ringgold Youth Soccer

General Registration Information

"In house" soccer means you only play other RAYSA teams. Currently, we offer "In house" for U6, U8 and u10 age groups. "Travel" soccer is when you play teams other than RAYSA so you are traveling to other areas. Currently, we have this for U10 and up.

FALL 2019-SPRING 2020 Soccer Season age groups go by birth year. If you were born in the following years, this is what age group you will play for:
U6 - 2014, 2015
U8 - 2012, 2013
U10 - 2010, 2011
U11 - 2009
U12 - 2008
U13 - 2007
U14 - 2006
U15 - 2005
U18- 2002

Please refer to http://www.pawest-soccer.org/ for more information on the youth soccer age grouping.

RAYSA makes every effort to keep in house players together from season to season (fall to spring). Unfortunately, we cannot always do this.  Teams are rostered based on the number of signups and the number of available coaches. Once rosters are released to coaches, they are finalized and changes will not be made. No refunds will be issued.

Please read more about travel rosters in the player evaluation section of our website. Once rosters are released to coaches, they are finalized and changes will not be made. No refunds will be issued.

*In house uniforms: If you are in need of an in house uniform shirt, you will see the link for Sparkles By Shell in your email confirmation after you have registered. It is YOUR responsibility to pick up the uniform shirt from her shop on Main Street in Monongahela. The uniform order will be placed after registration closes. You will receive a phone call/email from Sparkles By Shell letting you know that you order is ready for pick up. There is also a shipping option available.

*Travel Uniforms: New RAYSA travel uniforms were issued Fall 2019. All travel players (except U13-U18 as long as they decide to wear the RAYSA in house jersey or their school uniform) will have to purchase a new uniform kit if they do not already have one. The kit includes 1 home and 1 away jersey (with number on the back. No number requests as they will be assigned.), 1 pair of shorts and 1 pair of socks. The uniforms are up to par, if not better, than what our opponents are wearing. The cost of the total uniform is $60. If you just need separate items, this is now an option. RAYSA will distribute uniforms to coaches to hand out. *RAYSA is not responsible for inaccurate ordering of sizes of the uniforms.*

*A payment plan is available for everyone who registers during regular registration. Those who register during the waitlist period do not have a payment plan option. All registration fees must be paid PRIOR to the first game of the season in order for your child to be allowed to participate in the games. If payment is not paid for any reason, including a payment error on this site, Blue Sombrero, your child will only be allowed to practice until payment is completed. You will be sent an email, told by your coach or a board member will contact you if you have not completed payments alerting you to this and the consequences.

*Please make note that BLUE SOMBRERO will be the biller on your credit card statement. If a payment is cancelled/disputed through your credit card company, you will be responsible for a cancellation fee ($35) to RAYSA. A check can be sent to our PO box should this happen and it is resolved on your end.

*Ghost checks must be turned in PRIOR to the first game of the season or your child(ren) will not be permitted to play in a game until check is turned in. Child(ren) may only practice. Ghost checks should be made out to RAYSA with your child's name in the memo. You can give them to your coach at your first practice all the way until the first game. You will be sent an email if you have not turned in your ghost check prior to the first game alerting you to this and the consequences. At the end of the season, if we still have your ghost check and payment is stopped or your check bounces, you will be responsible for the returned check fee and a balance will be add to your registration next season. Applicable for U6-U12.

*RAYSA will contact parents/guardians in regard to moving players up to play at the next age level. This could be due to increased player skill level from the evaluations, not having enough players at the older age group and needing to move players up to form this team or a myriad of various other reasons. 

*RAYSA is forming all girl teams at the U8 and above levels when numbers permit. If you would like your girl to play on an all girl team, please be sure to select this when registering. The all girl teams will still play against the other RAYSA in house teams. They will not be traveling to play against other all girl teams. Practice location may be determined upon coach/most area sign ups. This will be determined once registration closes.
