ROFC offers recreational soccer programs for boys and girls ages 3 up to 19 years old and will make sure we have a spot for EVERY player that registers by June 30th, 2021 for the Fall soccer season. Each team will have weekly practices and play 10 games between September 11th and October 30th. All registrations are done online via a ROFC online account. You can ask to return to your Spring season team if you register by June 30. The deadline to register for Fall rec programs is July 31, but we cannot guarantee team placement after June 30.
** Our 3 and 4-year-old program, called Little Renegades, has a finite number of spots and will take registrations only until the program is full. Register early, this is a very popular program. ***
