Lil' Rams Soccer

Lil' Rams Soccer

A positive experience with sports at the youngest ages can have a lasting impact on a child's life.

The Lil Rams program offered by RAYSA is a developmentally appropriate program introducing preschool age children to fundamental soccer principles with and without a ball, such as using their feet, dribbling, and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games, positive reinforcement, and qualified coaching, children will experience the joy of playing soccer and being active from an early age.  Based on best practices from other successful similar national programs, RAYSA is proud to offer this Lil Rams opportunity to our local families.

The traditional RAYSA recreational soccer program begins at the U-6 (Under 6) age group for our 4 and 5 year olds within the Ringgold school district communities. In 2019 RAYSA kick-started this Lil Rams program based on parent feedback, recognizing a lack of quality soccer programs for children under age 4 in the Mon-Valley, and a need to introduce the game to children before they begin playing on a traditional RAYSA U-6 age group team.  Older children also new to soccer are always welcome to begin playing at any age on one of our traditional (U-6 to U-14) youth soccer age group teams.

Eligibility for the Lil Rams program is based only on birth year one soccer season to the next, so please check RAYSA registration information each season for that update. Generally children around age 3 are eligible to participate. Children outside the Ringgold school district communities are welcome and encouraged to also play in this Lil Rams program. There is no commitment to stay on a RAYSA team after the child is no longer eligible for Lil Rams.

The Lil Rams program usually practices once a week each regular Spring and Fall season. There are no formal games between opposing teams in this program. Every child will receive a free t-shirt.
