COHO Soccer Program
Richmond FC is excited to announce the second season of the Club’s partnership program with the Richmond Food Bank and COHO Commissary for low-income families in Richmond – Coho Soccer Program.
The program is targeted to families who are clients of the Richmond Food Bank but current RFC members who obtain Jumpstart or Kidsport funding to cover soccer registration fees are also welcome to sign-up.
This is a soccer program that helps Richmond families, children and youth access quality coaching, fun games and lunch for all families – free of charge.
Ages U4-U12 (2019-2011) are welcome to join and players will be divided up by age and ability. The Sunday program will be based on a soccer festival format (street soccer). There will be a warm-up component and small-sided games.
The inclusive free soccer program is scheduled as follows:
January 15th to March 5 (Sundays)
Boyd White (Francis Road and #1 Road)
Plus 2 weeks of Richmond FC Spring Break Camps
Included in the free registration is:
• Uniform. (Jersey, Shorts and socks).
• soccer games
• COHO Commissary will provide a free meal at the field for the families and players after the session each Sunday.
Players will need to have their own appropriate footwear – this could be soccer cleats or good tread running shoes.
Although the program is free, it is not a “drop-in” program. Weekly participation is expected.
If you are unsure if your family qualifies for the program, please send an email in confidence to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registering.
