Looking for a competitive and family-friendly Grand Rapids youth soccer club program that won’t break your budget? Well look no further than Rapids FC!

For 19 years, Rapids FC has offered hundreds of families in Cascade, Ada, Forest Hills, East Grand Rapids and Kentwood a top-level developmental youth soccer training program for boys and girls ages 4 through 18. Focused on age-specific player development — both on and off the field — the Rapids FC year-round program stresses fundamental skills training from experienced and qualified coaches.

In addition to ongoing instruction, all of our teams participate in competitive fall and spring seasons and tournament play throughout West Michigan. Many teams also take part in optional indoor soccer and futsal sessions in the off-season to continue their development. With multiple teams at every grade level, Rapids FC always welcomes new players looking to improve their skills, play at a high level and of course, have fun. Our family friendly atmosphere fosters soccer-specific athletic development, teamwork and mental preparation in a positive and enjoyable environment.


Created in 1999, Rapids FC aims to provide area youth soccer players with a competitive and family friendly environment in Grand Rapids.

Our year-round program offers youth players the opportunity to develop their soccer skills in a encouraging environment.

While soccer is a high skilled sport, we avoid creating an obsessive environment that can lead to player burn out — especially for our younger players. Instead, Rapids FC uses a measured approach to high-level select soccer, developing competitive teams led by passionate coaches.


Interested in joining the Rapids FC family? Our Select and Premier program welcome boys and girls ages 6-18. Players are invited to contact us to express interest in attending one of our tryout sessions held in June every year.

Each age group has multiple teams based on skill level, so that your child can be placed with players possessing similar skill levels and developmental maturity.
