In celebrating our 20 years of quality, local youth soccer - we will randomly select 10 online registrants to get a free future season! If you haven't already registered your child online, do so soon. We will be selecting the 10 lucky players on April 15th.
This will be an extra special season. On 9 game nights, one of our sponsors or community partners will be handing out items to all of our players. One of the game nights, we will have a used soccer equipment drive. We will be collecting gently used soccer cleats, shin guards, and balls, which will be donated to students in need in the RPS 205 school district.
We hope you and your family will join us this season!
As part of our 20th Anniversary Celebratory year, we randomly picked 10 players from our online registration to receive a free future session with us. Congrats to the following players:
We will be in touch with the lucky families.
Get registered now for the 2016 Fall Outdoor League. For ages 4-10 (grades PK through 5th). Register online for your convenience.

Online registration available soon.
We are now accepting registrations for the 2016 Raptor Tots season. There are 4 sessions to choose from:
Wed May 4th
Thurs May 5th
Saturday May 7th
The Spring Weekday Session of Tots will run from April 6 - June 16 .
There will be no classes April 27-28, due to a trade show the ISC is hosting.
The Spring Saturday Session of Tots will run from April 16 - June 25.
We decided to delay the start of the Saturday Tots classes by one week, due to the ISC hosting the Puma Cup the weekend of April 9th. There will be over 550 teams competing outside, and parking will be scarce. So rather than have our Tots families be in the mix of all that - we will be starting a week later.
There will be no classes April 30th due to a trade show the ISC is hosting.
More info on the Raptor Tots page.
