Juniors Program Information

Rapids Juniors Development Program focuses on introducing young players to the game of soccer and teaching basic skills.  This is a great way to introduce young athletes to Rapids FC as they develop a love for the game and prepare for future club teams at Rapids. If you know of a player that may be interested, please pass along the info to another up and coming soccer star! Many of our former Juniors players are now in teams at Rapids, including some of our High School players!

We will run five sessions and each session will be run by Rapids FC coaches and assisted by current players from our Rapids older teams.  The focus of this program is to build a solid foundation of skills for these young players and to ignite a love for the game.  Players are split up by age in small groups to promote maximum touches on the ball and a fun atmosphere with plenty of attention from their coach.


  • If you or your player has any Covid-19 symptoms, please do not attend practices.
  • Winter indoor session – Please wear suitable athletic clothing for playing indoors on a gym floor. Sneakers only.
  • Spring outdoor session – Please wear suitable athletic clothing for playing soccer outdoors on grass.  Cleats are the best option but sneakers work as well
  • We apologize, but no refunds will be given due to weather-based cancellations.
  • We know that some of our youngest players can be a little shy! Feel free to help us out if they are struggling 🙂
  • Rapids FC staff and coaches will be on hand to chat with if you have any questions.
