What if my child has never played competitive soccer before?
One of the great things about competitive soccer in Florida is that there are different leagues and levels based on players' skill levels and abilities. There are three main levels; Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Gold level teams play against other Gold level teams, etc. So if we have a team made up of players that may not be as competitive as a team who has been playing together for 5 years, we're not going to play against that team. We will play against teams of similar ability.

That said, we will have tryouts, and not every child will make the team. We will select the players who we feel are ready to play at a competitive level, will benefit the team, exemplify good sportsmanship, and will bring a good work ethic and positive energy to practices and games.

How many teams will Rise FC have?
We will start with 4 to 6 teams for the 2019-2020 season. We want to provide the absolutely best experience possible for all of our players and parents. Being that this is our very first season, it is not our goal to see how many teams we can field, or how many players we can sign up. Our focus is exclusively on quality and providing your kids the BEST soccer experience possible. Because of that, we are going to have to say "no" to many players at some of the age groups in order to build our club the right way. This will ensure that starting next year and beyond, we can welcome more players and more age groups, and be sure that ALL of our players have an awesome consistent experience each and every year.

What age groups will you have?
This all depends on the number of players of each age group who attend our tryouts and who we feel are a great fit for Rise FC. We are confident we will have boys teams consisting of boys with birth years of 2010, 2009, and 2008, and girls teams consisting of girls born in 2005 and 2006. It is also a strong possibility we have a boys and/or girls team consisting of girls born in 2007. As we continue to build our club, we will continue adding age groups and teams into the future.

When are Tryouts?
Tryouts will be May 28-31, 2019. Girls Tryouts will be Tuesday and Thursday May 28 and 30. Boys will be Wednesday and Friday May 29 and 31. Tryout location and time schedule will be posted on the website shortly. Be sure to register for tryouts to get emails and updates as we get closer.

When will our games be?
Rise FC will primarily be a tournament club. This way, we won't have to go to Naples or Tampa or far away for a single game on a Saturday. We will play in one to two tournaments per month, most of which will be within an hour of Jupiter. We will also participate in 2 to 3 out of town tournaments throughout the season where we will stay overnight a night or two at a hotel in the area.

This way, we won't have games every single weekend for the whole year, allowing families more family time and off time to do things other than just soccer every weekend.

We will also have some games against other clubs in the area to get game experience and continue to develop and have fun.

-
When will practices be?
Practices will be 3 nights per week, with an optional 4th day where we will hold fun all-club fitness and conditioning workouts. Depending on the age level of the players, practices will be 1 hour and 15 minutes and will be 6-7:15pm for younger players, and 7:15 to 8:30pm for older players.

How much does it cost?
Thanks to the belief In our program by so many companies and families in the community who have made generous donations to our program, we are able to keep the all-in cost for the 2019-2020 season to just $1,150 all-in. This covers everything, including club fees, coaching fees, ref fees, tournament fees, uniforms, everything.

We never want money to be the reason any player doesn't play competitive soccer. Thanks to our powerful No Kid Left Behind scholarship program, financial aid programs, and payment plans, we ensure that all players who make the team and want to play will get to play soccer at Rise FC.
