The Grassroots Initiative

The Grassroots Initiative

Our Goal: Make the game of soccer more accessible to the youth of Grand Rapids.

How: River City FC is partnering with local parks, schools, churches, and organizations to offer soccer programming for Grand Rapids youth at little to no cost. We are on target to serve over 1,000 kids in our 4th year of programming! Check out our 3 Initiatives below for more info.

1. Summer Clinics

River City FC is offering 3 nights of FREE soccer for AGES 4 AND UP this summer, right in your neighbor-hood! Check it out:

  • Tuesdays at Lincoln
  • Wednesdays at MLK
  • Thursdays at Garfield

These run June 27 - August 17. Come out and join the fun for Summer 2017!

2. After School Clinics

The staff at River City FC didn't want to stop when summer ends, so we created an avenue for us to continue influencing your kids. We will be coming to schools, churches, or social clubs in your area to run FREE after school soccer programs that teach Character, Capability, and Community. We will have the schedule up before the school year!

3. In-School Programming

River City has recently started partnering with local schools to teach kids about the sport of soccer! Our amazing coaching staff will come into schools to teach soccer to kids in gym classes or at recess--how cool! We will also host field trips to our facilities and give them a taste of just how fun soccer can be!
