About Sponsoring & Donating to Rutland Youth Soccer

Rutland Youth Soccer (RYS) is a 100% volunteer run organization that continues to strive to expand our programs and offerings to our local community. We hope that you share this vision and consider marketing your business by sponsoring our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and supporting our kids. Our objective is to provide the youth of Rutland, MA an organization that promotes participation in the game of soccer, and teaches the principles of soccer excellence, sportsmanship, athletic skills, team spirit, character and social interaction. The fall will be here before we know it with the 2019 season starting on August 24. This year our goal is $10,000, and we hope that you will be able to make a contribution.

Why Should I Sponsor Rutland Youth Soccer or Donate to their Raffle? What is My Return on Investment?

RYS strives to deliver a quality fall recreational soccer program at a very reasonable cost. We rely on generous contributions of our sponsors to keep the program affordable for all players and their families in Rutland. Rutland Youth Soccer is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible.

Without the assistance of community-minded individuals like you, we wouldn't be able to meet our objective and provide a competitive and educational youth soccer program to our children, while keeping the program affordable for all players and their families in Rutland.

  • 391 children from Rutland played in the fall 2018 season
  • 56 games were played in town at the travel level (U10 & above) meaning families from other communities came to town providing opportunity for them to spend money with our local businesses
  • 136 children at the Pre-K (83) and U6 Kindergarten (53) level started to learn to play soccer on Saturday’s with their parents & grandparents cheering them on
  • 74 children at the U8 level continued in-town skill development Monday through Thursday’s with their families on the sidelines, plus games on Friday's
  • 67 boys & girls played at the U10 level, 54 at U12, 26 at U14 and 37 registered at the high school level

    What Does RYS do with the Sponsorship Money and Money Raised During the Raffle?

    Many things!  A portion of the money goes to keeping our program one of the most affordable in the area.  By using sponsor dollars to offset some of the general costs of the program (insurance for our players and coaches, league fees, etc.) we are able to keep our registration fees down for our players and their families.  In addition, a portion of the sponsorship money will be targeted at equipment upgrades, field maintenance & improvements, coach training and skills clinics to assist with the development of our young players. In 2018, money raised through sponsors and donors was used to level and re-seed CTMC Lower field.
