Rapids Juniors Development Program

Rapids Juniors is in its fifth 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.

Thank you for your interest in Rapids Juniors – if you know of a player that may be interested, please pass along the info to another up and coming soccer star!

Rapids Juniors Development Program Staff

We are delighted to announce Brittany Mayer and Kevin Newell as our dedicated Rapids Juniors coaches moving forward. These two specialist coaches excel at developing our youngest players and relish the different challenges faced when coaching our juniors.

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.  Below are the details for the Spring program:

April 17 | April 24 | May 1 | May 8 | May 15
6 – 7pm | Gainey Athletic Complex
$60 per player ($15 drop in fee)

Please note, Juniors will take place on the South Baseball field at Gainey Athletic Complex, not the soccer fields.

All players in the program will receive a soccer ball, water bottle, and t-shirt (no t-shirt for drop in players).

Quick and easy registration is now available by submitting the contact form to the left (desktop view).

Registration fees of $60/player should be mailed to the address below, or brought to the first session.
