Rahway Youth Soccer

Posted Apr 21, 2021

Rahway Youth Soccer is proud to announce we have signed a joint venture with Junior Football Club. . Rahway is a diverse town that has been building its culture around the residents and the youth community.   We have multiple athletic complexes and a large pool of players for both recreational and travel soccer.  This joint venture will provide JFC and RYS with a consistent place for training and host games throughout the whole year.   In addition, it will provide a larger player pool to identify players that are right for the next level (Elite) in soccer.  JFC will work to teach both rec and travel level players the proper way to play soccer.   This will help the community in giving the young players an activity to help them grow as individuals plus stay physically fit.   With this arrangement, JFC and RYS  have more weight in working with multiple soccer leagues/tournaments for placement and events.  Rahway Youth Soccer is very happy with this new venture and looking forward to the bright future ahead of us.

IMPORTANT-Sports Concussion Injury Prevention and Management

Governor Christie passed a Law on Sports Concussion Injury Prevention and Management back in December 2010 (see attached). If you have coached (or are coaching or know of someone currently coaching) HS Soccer you may have been informed about this and your Board Of Education (BOE) may have required you to take either the National Federation of High Schools Sports Concussion On-Line Training Program OR the Centers for Disease Control On-Line Training Program (see below).

Regardless, this law will also begin to impact all Youth Soccer Programs run through NJYS that apply to rent out/use HS or Public Parks and Recreation Fields -- besides turning in a Certificate of Insurance, School/Parks and Recs will require at some point start to require proof that all coaches using these complexes show proof of training in Sports Concussions.

Bottom line YOU MUST take the On Line Course -- NJYS will require coaches submit proof of having taken this course.

Get prepared now-- if you want to coach!

Here are the links to obtain said training--its simple and FREE!
