Richmond United Soccer Club is extremely excited and proud to announce our new program, ADAPTED KICKS.

In 2020, our grassroots, non-profit association was renamed the Richmond United Soccer Club, and our Constitution was amended to be accepting and inclusive of all youth and adults, and of all genders and identities. Inclusion is the most recent addition to RUSC’s pillars:

“We believe in creating opportunities for all players of diverse identities, backgrounds and abilities to be included in our programs."

To better meet the needs of all youth and families in our community, the Adapted Kicks program caters specifically to the abilities of individuals with cognitive or physical diversities/limitations.  By accommodating recreation activities to the goals of the individual, these youth are able to successfully participate in soccer programming, promoting self-confidence and self-worth, while also providing them an opportunity to lead healthy and active lifestyles.

Program Details:
  • 45-minute sessions
  • Monday evenings, once a week
  • Open to any youth facing physical or cognitive diversities/limitations
  • 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm - U6-U9 (2014-2017)
  • 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm - U10-U14 (2009-2013)
  • Hugh Boyd Park (field TBA)
