JR. RCL

The Jr. RCL Program at Eastside FC

Eastside FC is the leading club for player development in Washington. The Jr. RCL program is designed to give players and families a sample of the premier soccer environment without a year-long commitment. The Jr. RCL is an introduction to the highest level of play in the state of Washington. In this program, the emphasis is placed on having fun and giving players an education in an environment where they are not afraid to make a mistake or fail.  The league does not keep score and there are no standings. Our professional coaches are educators who improve players skills and game intelligence.  We want kids to enjoy the game, their teammates, and most importantly to learn!‍ We offer three sessions (8-10 weeks long) every year.  The registration cost is $500, and you will need to purchase a simple uniform kit that can be reused repeatedly.

Eastside FC will be hosting placement days for all U7, U8 and U9 players. All interested players will be placed on a team. Team placement will occur based on the observations of the coaches during the first week of training. Players will be placed with players of similar ability to ensure their developmental needs are met
