Spring 2021 Jr. Academy

The 2021 Spring Jr. Academy is a seven-week program focused on players born in 2011 and 2012 who wish to evolve their technical skills further AND prepare themselves to compete at the next soccer level. Over 7 training sessions, The RVT professional staff lead by local coaching legend Dave Potter will lead the group through exercises and activities focused on the technical foundations and small group tactics necessary to succeed at the competitive level. Particular focus will be placed on dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting and 1v1 defending.

At the end of the 7 weeks, the group will be broken into teams to compete in the Rogue Memorial Challenge Memorial Day Soccer Tournament here in Medford.

This program serves as a supplement to our recreational soccer program. Players are encouraged to do both. If your recreational soccer practice conflicts with Jr. Academy practices, you are excused from your recreational practice.

Players born in 2011 who are currently in our competitive academy are not eligible for this program.

This program requires a commitment to get better and a focus. To be clear, the program is for players mature enough to focus and commit to working hard. We will push the players outside of their comfort zone and help them become more proficient in the skills needed to succeed at a higher level of soccer.

The fee for this program is $175.00 and includes:
7 training sessions lead by professional RVT Coaching Staff
Training time on the turf at US Cellular Community Sports Park
2 - Shirts (will serve as jerseys for the tournament)

Recreational Soccer - Fall 2020

Welcome to the fall 2020 season. We are incredibly excited to be able to deliver youth soccer to our community after having to cancel in the spring.

In order to comply with state and local mandates regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have to restrict the number of spectators at a field, enforce face coverings for players and spectators, and enforce social distancing requirements. Please understand that we must follow these policies to be able to continue to operate and bring soccer to our community. To that end, we ask that everyone plays their role and complies.

You can see our modified recreational rules and our COVID-19 policies for recreational soccer by clicking here.

FALL 2020 RECREATIONAL SCHEDULES

 
GAME ON!!!

Hello Rogue Valley Timbers Family,

I am happy to announce that as of now, all Rogue Valley Timbers recreational soccer games are on for tomorrow, Saturday 9/19/2020.

As we all know, weather in the valley can change rapidly. Please check www.rvsoccer.com and/or our Facebook page before your game to see if any changes have been made. There are many air quality websites and applications out there. We use the Oregon DEQ site at http://oregon.envi-das.com/home/map and have a threshold of 100.

By now, it is apparent that 2020 has brought about less than ideal circumstance for all of us. As such, let's know that tomorrow may not be the "perfect start" to the season. Many teams have been unable to meet or practice at all. We still have some members displaced. We may have teams show up with low numbers. Regardless off the circumstances, let's pull together as a community and make tomorrow AWESOME for our kids. It's been a long time coming, bit we couldn't be more excited to get our kids back on the field!!!

If you have questions about recreational soccer, please contact Tori Smalley at tori.smalley@rvsoccer.com or 541-840-6708.

Covid-19 Policies

As most of you know, in order to run our programs, we have to work within restrictions set by state and local authorities as related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Please understand that we have to abide by these restrictions to allow our programs to move forward. Your cooperation is appreciated whether you agree with the policies or not. Please understand, that we will stop or cancel games if these policies are not followed!!!

These policies include but are not limited to (please see http://www.rvsoccer.com/home.php?layout=14873985 for a full list of recreational policies and http://www.rvsoccer.com/Covid for our full club and competitive Covid-19 operations plan.

  1. All players, spectators, coaches and referees must wear a mask/face covering during games and training sessions
  2. Spectators are limited to 1 per player (we know this will be difficult, but we have limits on gatherings that we must adhere to. Even if we allowed 2 spectators per player, we will quickly exceed that limit and risk being shut down. Please help us by respecting this policy. If needed, we will stop games if teams are not in compliance)
  3. At the recreational level, no team benches. It is recommended that all players bring their own chair so they can sit spaced out on the sideline
  4. No high fives, fist bumps, snacks, or rally tunnels


Thank you all again for your patience and understanding. We are working hard behind the scenes to provide soccer for the youth in our valley and we're determined to make that happen this fall. Thank you to all of our staff and volunteers for their unwavering commitment to our programs. We couldn't do it without you. And thank you to all of our members for choosing to be part of the Rogue Valley Timbers!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Kevin Primerano
Executive Director

High School Premier Tryouts

The tryout results are below. We will begin training the week of 9/14. We are just finalizing field space and training schedules. Coaches will be reaching out throughout next week to get the year started. Please contact RVT Director of Coaching David Horst with questions at 757-630-4743 or david.horst@rvsoccer.com.

Boy's Results Girl's Results

These team placements will form the foundation of our traditional winter soccer teams. We will make adjustments based on player performance and commitment over the next 2 months as we head into our winter season.

Teams will play in the Southern Oregon Classic League for the fall competing against other high school age teams from other communities. There will be no overnight travel for the fall season. We are not clear as to what the traditional spring/winter season will look like, but we suspect it will run from early January to the middle of February and then will take a break, so players are able to compete with their high school teams. We will be examining the possibilities of doing college showcase tournaments beginning in December of 2020. However, that decision will ultimately be determined by what is available and safe at the time.

The fee for the fall high school season is $360.00 payable in 3 payments and will include: Oregon Youth Soccer registration, fall league fee, professional coaching, field space at US Cellular Park, and 2 t-shirts (which will serve as uniforms for the fall) and a reversible RVT training bib (as we are currently prohibited from sharing training bibs). We will not be asking players to buy the new adidas uniforms until the spring season. However, if they are new players, they will need to purchase the official training kit from the Soccer Post for $51.00. These kits are the same kit as the last 2 years and will be good for another 2 years.

***This fee is for fall only. There will be an additional fee for the Winter/Spring season which will be determined once we have more clarity as to what that will look like.

 
RVT Hires 11 Year Major League Soccer Veteran David Horst
Posted Dec 16, 2019

Rogue Valley Timbers Hire MLS Veteran David Horst

Medford, Ore. (Dec.16, 2019) — The Rogue Valley Timbers announced today the hiring of 11-year Major League Soccer veteran David Horst as the club’s new Director of Coaching.

Horst will be charged with overseeing player and coaching development throughout all of the RV Timbers’ offerings. Current RV Timbers Director of Coaching and Executive Director Kevin Primerano will take on the full-time role of Executive Director and will oversee the organization's strategic vision and the day-to-day business operations of the 1500-player soccer club.

“We are incredibly fortunate to be able to bring someone with David’s experience to the Timbers family,” said Primerano. “His perspective and knowledge as a professional athlete will be a tremendous asset to our players and coaches.”

Since retiring from Major League Soccer earlier this year, Horst has served as the Assistant Technical Director for the Real Salt Lake youth academy, one of the premier youth development systems in the United States.

“David understands and embraces a player-centered approach to youth development, and his philosophy is congruent with how we approach our players’ development here at the Rogue Valley Timbers,” said Primerano.

David Wright, President of the Rogue Valley Timbers, said, “It isn’t every day you get the opportunity to hire someone who has professional experience as a player, coaching experience, and a desire to help youth athletes grow as players and people. We are excited to bring David’s expertise to Southern Oregon.”

"I am very excited for the opportunity to bring my experience to the Rogue Valley Timbers and the growing soccer community in Southern Oregon,” said Horst “To be able to give back to the same community that supported me so much as a player for the Timbers was a chance that I could not turn down. I will bring the same passion for the game to the Rogue Valley Timbers as I did when I was a player. " 

Horst is expected to arrive in Medford in the second week in January.
