The Rage 05 ECNL side finished atop a very competitive NorCal Premier league (Region 3/4/5) following a 1-0 win over Santa Rosa United ECNL. Rage got out to an early lead, beating the SRU back line followed by a beautiful finish within the opening minutes. Axel Thibodeau’s team staunch defending kept SRU off the board for the remaining 65+ minutes. The 05s finished 6-0-2 with an astonishing 31-2 goal differential and are off to compete in the always exciting State Cup season. Good luck girls!

The RAGE Recreational Youth Academy provides a unique learning environment for recreational players to develop fundamental soccer skills. The goal of this Academy is to foster a passion for soccer and a greater understanding of the game while building a solid foundation of basic skills and technique. This training will add in elements to prepare young players for competitive tryouts for the 2018 season. Players are welcome to attend whether or not they are planning on trying out for a competitive team.
The Recreational Youth Academy is open to all RECREATIONAL children playing in the Fall 2017 U6, U7, U8, U9 and U10 age groups (birth years 2012 – 2008). This is a great way for players to continue improving throughout the winter months.
