The RFC Way

With the 2017 soccer season drawing to a close  Rockwood FC is continuing to implement exciting new changes to our programming.

Due to the overwhelming success of the RFC Elite program, The RFC Rep Division will be adopting identical training methods, techniques and ideology to that of Elite with the view of maximizing the development of all players involved. Soccer is a team sport and the “RockwoodFC Way” will develop all players individual ability and talent to allow them to flourish in a team environment. The “RockwoodFC Way” will be immediately recognizable to all who see our players and teams play.  Every Rep/Elite Coach at RFC will be part of one coaching unit, working  together towards the same goals. As Technical Director, I will be heavily involved on the field with each Rep team to work with our Coaching staff in implementing this new system.

RFC has lofty ambitions.  Those ambitions are for your player and you. We believe that we must do more to provide opportunities in this game. Soccer for life is the minimum requirement we set ourselves, it is a baseline that runs through all that we do but the real objective is to further young players careers to the heights they dream of. The “Rockwood Way” will not only seek to develop strong soccer players and young leaders of the future, we are committed to developing opportunities with professional clubs and schools so that the dream of playing soccer at the highest level can be achieved. We also are dedicated to furthering players education so they can be prepared for a career outside of soccer. The odds of becoming a professional or gaining a scholarship to a US or Canadian university are, in reality, slim. However those odds improve if we provide the correct learning and development, they improve if we build relationships with schools and they improve if we give players the guidance they need to excel and thrive in this game.

We must aim for these heights and to do this we need to work together. Our Township has facilitated our growth by announcing new soccer pitches  and with RFC’s donation to date of $30,000 towards the new fields we will be ready to provide quality surfaces for our players to play on day or night.

It’s an exciting time at RFC and with a committed Executive, talented Coaching staff and unflinching dedication to each and every player at our soccer club we hope you will join us to achieve all that we can for your players.
