ABOUT THE RiVER ISLANDS RECREATIONAL PROGRAM

Our grassroots approach to the River Islands Recreational Program is to have kids 5-12 years of age fall in love with the game of soccer.

We are dedicated to bringing a quality youth soccer recreational program to our community by creating a fun and rewarding experience with balanced teams, everyone plays philosophy, good sportsmanship, and player/coach/referee development programs. We hope to give our volunteer coaches all the resources available to assist them in providing an educational and fun practice and game environment. River Islands FC will also give back to our community by supporting a number of local organizations.

River Islands FC (RIFC) is a 501(c) 3 Non-Profit Organization.
