From the Club’s website About Page – The Rolla Knights Soccer Club is a member of the Missouri Youth Soccer Association and is the only competitive youth soccer club in the Rolla Area. We currently have eigth boys teams and three girls teams.
The Rolla Knights Soccer Club was formed in January 2006 to promote competitive youth soccer in the Rolla area. There have been many compettative soccer teams prior to this, quite a few of then named “Rolla Knights” or “Lady Knights,” but they were formed by individual coaches and not governed by a club formed specifically to promote competitive soccer. The Rolla Area Youth Soccer League (RAYSL) acted as the parent club for these teams during the 90’s and many of the Knights coaches and managers were also active in the RAYSL organization.
Recreational soccer has always being the focus of RAYSL even though competitive teams were registered under it. Therefore it was felt that a competitive soccer club is needed to bring together the various “Knights” teams under one umbrella and to facilitate the growth of comeptitive soccer and provide resources for player development.
