The RYSA Select Program

The RYSA Select Program (U13-U19) is for players wishing to play at a higher level. The RYSA Select Program provides players with a highly competitive level of play. The RYSA coaching staff evaluates the skills, potential and enthusiasm of each player. A serious commitment is required to participate in the select program. Players are asked to commit to two or three practices per week and one to two games each weekend during the season. Additionally, teams may participate in various tournaments, sometimes traveling out of state. Each Select team at RYSA is coached by a professionally licensed coach.
