All teams are full for spring 2024 soccer and registration is now closed.

We hope to see you back for fall soccer... please note registration is open from May 15 - June 31.  We GUARANTEE everyone a spot on on a team that registers during that window.

The Royal Oak Football Club (formerly ROYSA) has been serving our community for over 45 years as a non-profit soccer organization.  Royal Oak FC is one of the largest clubs in the state of Michigan, providing a recreational program as well as a premier program.  Royal Oak FC has over 2,000 players participating each season in our programs.   

ROFC offers recreational soccer programs for kids ages 3 up to 18 years old and will make sure we have a spot for EVERY SINGLE PLAYER that registers by February 28, 2024 for the Spring soccer season. 

Each team will have weekly practices and play 10 games between April and early June.  All registrations are done online via a ROFC online account (click registration button on this screen).

If you played with us in the Fall season and loved your team, make sure you register by the 'same team deadline' of January 31st to guarantee a returning spot on that team.

Open registration will continue to remain open to everyone until February 28th, after which time we will begin to put teams together.

** 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. ***

Kindergarten through 8th Grade: Players are placed on teams in age groups that correspond to their school grade. Teams practice once/twice per week and have one/two games per week.  Each of our 150+ teams is led by parent volunteer coaches.  The coach sets their own day, time and location for practice at a Royal Oak park.  There are 10 games played on weekends and week nights.
