ROCKLIN, CA -  The Rocklin Parks, Recreation, and Arts Commission Meeting, Placer Valley Tourism recently presented Rocklin Youth Soccer with a check for $20,000 to help fund a complete renovation of two full size soccer fields in Rocklin.
 
The renovation of these soccer fields to Hybrid Bermuda grass will help Rocklin Youth Soccer Club attract more out of town teams, host additional tournaments, and stay at a competitive level. 

"The Rocklin Youth Soccer Club (RYSC) is a non-profit, volunteer based soccer club that supports over 3000 players in the City of Rocklin", says Stephen Makis, Field Coordinator for the RYSC.  Makis continues to say that  "the purpose of the Rocklin Youth Soccer Club is to provide the youth of Rocklin an opportunity to play at the Recreational or Competitive level and to further develop their appreciation and skills of the game.  It has been said that our competitive program is by far the best value for kids who want to play Competitive Soccer in the area. Our Competitive teams now compete in the NorCal Premier Leagues, US Club events, as well as CalNorth events.  We have also joined forces with Vision Soccer Training to provide our teams at all levels, with top level trainers." 

Rocklin Youth Soccer is continuing to grow and improve, and ensuring the renovation of these fields helps propel that growth.  Placer Valley Tourism is very excited to help the Club with its field renovations and help out in furthering the program.

 "Rocklin Youth Soccer is an amazing organization and works very well with our youth and athletics in the City of Rocklin.  This assistance from PVT will really help advance the program and open up new possibilities" says Mayor of the City of Rocklin Scott Yuill.
