Rose Tree Rockets: Welcome

2009 Shoot for cure
Friday, March 22

Rose Tree Rockets

A competitive U15 soccer team focused on competing at the appropriate level to allow for proper development of technical and tactical soccer skill sets.   This environment allows players to develop at different rates, without sacrificing development for the sake of winning.   We have had players that have developed quickly and moved onto to FC DELCO and PENN FUSION, but for the majority of the players which come from 6 different middle schools, this is the perfect situation to allow them in our year round program to learn how to play the game of soccer maximizing their soccer potential and confidence to play in High School and beyond.   

“I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.” Mia Hamm
