Welcome to Richmond FC soccer registration for Spring 2023 – Advanced Development (competitive), for girls and boys born 2015 to 2005. Programing 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.
Richmond FC is excited to continue to offer off-season spring programming to players who are interested in keeping their skills up and preparing for the main soccer season (September to March).
The Advanced Development Program is Richmond FC’s competitive stream for players born 2015-2005. The program is for experienced soccer players with intermediate to advanced skill. It is not for beginners or players newer to soccer – please see the Club’s Open Development Program. Placement in the Advanced Development Program is by evaluation only. Players not currently (2022-2023 Fall/Winter) in the Advanced Development Program can email firstname.lastname@example.org for evaluation information.
Players in the Advanced Development Program will be placed on teams (within their birth year) and train two times per week with weekend games in the Cascadia Spring Soccer League (involves travel outside of Richmond). Practices are 1 hour to 1 1/4 hours depending on age group. In the Cascadia Spring Soccer League, boys play Saturday and girls play Sunday. Games are April 15-June 11. **Please note that in the Spring (offseason), U11-U18 teams and division placement maybe different from your team in the main soccer season (September to March) as teams are formed based on registration numbers and overall ability of all players.**
NEW THIS YEAR!! Advanced Development registration includes free Friday Night Street Soccer (small-sided games) Program.
