WE INVITE YOU TO BECOME PART OF THE KICKERS FAMILY
The Richmond Kickers Recreational (Rec) Soccer Program provides an opportunity for young people in our community to develop healthy life skills and team skills through active participation in the beautiful game of soccer. Our core values are teamwork, fairness and communication, while nurturing a positive environment to strive for excellence. The Kickers offer two, full soccer seasons in the fall and spring, providing a fun and safe environment for children ages 3-19. The focus is participation, team building, sportsmanship and fun while kids learn the game of soccer in a minimally competitive environment.
Children in our U4 (under 4 years old), U5 and U6 age divisions learn ball handling skills and improve coordination with fun games and activities in a relaxed environment. They learn to love the game of soccer and make lasting friendships on and off the field. As the age divisions get older; U8, U10, U12, U14 U16 and U19, practices become more structured with age appropriate drills focusing on field positioning, ball control, game strategy and scrimmages. Led by our dedicated volunteer coaches, players develop into strong, confident individuals that appreciate teamwork, commitment and pride in being a part of the Kickers family.
The Richmond Kickers provide an unbeatable value with programs conveniently located throughout the Richmond area. We have a program that is perfect for your child.
INTERESTED IN COACHING? We are always looking for dedicated adults looking to make a positive impact in a child's life through soccer. New to soccer? We can teach you everything you need to know. Have some (or a lot) of soccer experience? We would love to have you join our team!
