About Opening Day - September 8, 2018

September 8, 2018 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Memorial Field, Rutland

Rutland Youth Soccer is holding our first ever RYS Opening Day festivities, and we encourage you and your families to come out and be a part of the fun. We have a fun filled day planned, that includes soccer, pictures, activities for the kids, food trucks, RYS merchandise and more. And best of all, other than purchasing food and RYS fan wear, the day is FREE, thanks to our Opening Day sponsor, Firesafe Chimney Services, Inc.!!! 

The day will start with our Pre-K and Kindergarten soccer sessions, followed by a U8 (1st/2nd grade) mini tournament. The afternoon will host at least 3 U10 (3rd/4th grade) travel level games. And around it all, there will be plenty to keep your family entertained. RYS is also pleased to bring back picture day, where pictures will be taken of full teams and individual children.

A lot of planning has already gone into this day, and in order to make this a successful and enjoyable day for everyone, we are asking RYS families to consider volunteering a little bit of their time. Please check out our Signup Genius to register for open slots.
