Inclement Weather Policy

We play soccer in the rain, we play soccer when it’s cold, and we play soccer when the fields are open. If it is raining and the fields are open, players need to go to their games. River Soccer Club only closes the fields if there is a chance the fields will be damaged (standing water, new grass). Should there be a cancellation there will be 1) A post to the River Soccer Club Facebook Page. 2) An all call to the participants in the program. 3) An email blast to all participants in the program.

Refund Policy

There will be no refunds issued once a player registers for recreational soccer.
