Welcome to Richmond FC’s soccer registration for Spring 2023 Open Development (Recreational), for girls and boys born 2019 to 2005. Programming runs April 3 to June 24, 2023. As a Canada Soccer designated Quality Soccer Provider, all programming is in accordance with Canada Soccer Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) guidelines. This program is two times per week.
Players born 2019 to 2011 (U4-U12) will be placed on balanced teams by age and participate in the 2023 Spring Soccer League (games are in Richmond only). This program consists of 1 practice a week and Saturday games (against other teams in your age group). Teams are co-ed, but where numbers permit may be separate girls and boys. All players receive a Richmond FC uniform (jersey, shorts and socks). Teams are coached by parent volunteers with RFC staff coaches providing supplemental support. RFC provides LTPD Certified coaches for all programming. Scott Guy, RFC’s LTPD Specialist, oversees all U4-U12 programs.
Players born 2010 to 2005 (U13-U18) will be placed on teams and participate in the Cascadia Spring Soccer League (involves travel outside of Richmond). There is one practice a week and weekend games.
