Registration

CLICK HERE to register for the 2017/2018 soccer season starting in September 2017. (You will be re-directed to the Richmond FC online registration. Please note that Richmond FC only accepts CREDIT CARDS for payment. We do not accept cheques, debit cards or Visa debit.)
 
PLAYER REQUESTS:  Requests to be with friends are only taken at U5 (2013), U6 (2012) and U7 (2011). We do not take requests for any other age groups. We will honor one player request, if you make more than one player request it is not guaranteed you will be placed with all. Thank-you in advance for respecting this.
 
Relative Age Effect: Many studies indicate that in sport being born earlier in the year creates for players being chosen to selected teams (Richmond FC creates its first selected teams at U11) and a corresponding disadvantage for those players born later in the year.  This disadvantage/advantage is called "Relative Age Effect".  While we do not pretend to have a complete answer for all of the challenges resulting from Relative Age Effect, we believe a partial solution is to permit players born in the last four months of the year and playing in our Richmond only domestic leagues (U5 to U11 non-Select) to play in the year younger division.  For example, in the 2017-2018 season, a player born in December 2008 rather than play at U10, could if he wished, play at U9.  Players wishing to take this opportunity are required to make this request with the Richmond FC Administrator prior to registering.
 
U5-U11 Team Notification:  You will be contacted in September, after Labour Day, regarding what team your child is on.
 
U12-U18 non-selected Team Notification:  You will be contacted mid to late August regarding what team your child is on.
 
Equipment required:  Cleats and shinguards.  All players will receive one (1) pair of socks to keep.  U8-U11 players will be given uniforms they can keep at the end of the season.  U5-U7 and U12-U18 will be given uniforms that must be returned at the end of the season.
