Dear RRDSC Members,
Things are underway for the Fall 2022 season! What a fun way to jump start the season with the Rio Rapids Durango Soccer Club (RRDSC) Day at the Fort Lewis College Soccer Alumni games. The kids got to experience the new outdoor 4v4 turf arena while supporting the FLC soccer programs. The atmosphere was energized! We are grateful for our partnership with FLC soccer. Our collaboration with FLC continues to open up avenues for our club players!
We made a strong effort to get our Soccer, Service & Socks program up and running again. Partnering with Bronson Family McDonalds the program's goal is to support Durango School District 9R prepare school grounds for the year by spreading cedar chips, pulling weeds, picking up trash, and other various projects. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate and we were rained out. Serving the community is an important aspect of our club culture and we will continue to look for service opportunities.
One way we are supporting our community is by working with Big Brothers & Big Sisters of the Southwest and their Sports Buddies Program. This program is designed to match young people with a positive role model, and engage in fun, easy soccer clinics. RRDSC and FLC student-athletes will organize and run the soccer clinics. Along with this, RRDSC is making a strong push for our teams to do service projects again. As part of our Go Out And Lead (GOAL) program, each team is asked to due one service project a season. Stay tuned, as we will highlight some of the creative ways our teams choose to give back to our community.
We are excited for teams to kick off league this upcoming Saturday with both Four Corners and Duke City League play. As we move further into the Fall season keep an eye out for Goalkeeper training and extra opportunities for your player to have touches on the ball. We are proud that RRDSC was honored again and chosen to be the host site for the Colorado Soccer Association Cup (October 22-23). This local tournament is a great way to play games at home and bring people to our town.
RRDSC is looking forward to great Fall Season.
See you out on the fields!
Rio Rapids Durango SC
