RVSC is a member of the American Youth Soccer Organization. We are a nonprofit organization, dedicated to providing world class soccer programs to the youth of Osceola, and surrounding communities. Registration is now open!

We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship. All players will develop their soccer skills and knowledge of the game, both individually and as members of a team.

Our Core Program is open to all school-aged children 5 years old and up. New this year, we are offering Playground Soccer. This program is for kids 3 and 4 years old. Playground uses group activities, soccer themes and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports. 

The regular season runs for 10 weeks, from late April to early June. Children ages 3-6 play on Monday evenings, and ages 7 and up, play Saturday mornings and afternoons. The cost per child is $85 (includes a jersey, and socks). Register by December 31, and pay the early-bird rate, $75. Parents are responsible for providing black shorts, shin guards, and soccer cleats. We believe that all children should be able to play, regardless of their ability to pay. If you are experiencing financial hardship, and would like to request assistance, or if you have any other question, email us at rvscinfo@gmail.com.
