Rapids Juniors Development Program – Spring 2020
Dates: 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/22, 5/29
Location: Gainey Athletic Complex, East Paris Ave.
Cost: $60 per player or $15 drop in fee. (Players who signed up for Fall 2019 are free!)
Rapids Juniors is in its sixth year and focuses on introducing young players, ages 3-8, 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!
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. The Juniors program runs right beside our club’s Academy training, so the little ones get to see the big kids practicing right beside them!
All players in the program will receive a soccer ball, water bottle, and t-shirt (no t-shirt for drop in players). While we try to stick to the assigned dates, sometimes field conditions or bad weather leads to cancellations. We have a make-up week built in to the program in case of a cancellation.
