Our Recreational Program


Braden River Soccer Club (BRSC) offers recreational boys & girls soccer programs for aspiring athletes that are passionate about the game. We believe in providing all local community soccer players an opportunity to participate in the game of soccer at a level that meets their developmental needs (i.e., physical, mental, and emotional status).

This developmental program offers an instructional and participation program in the Fall and Spring. Our boys, girls, and coed programs are available for ages 4 through 18. With approximately 500 players per season, this program provides a diverse player pool and fun competition. Recreational soccer is available to all of our youth regardless of their playing ability.


10 practices (beginning September 9th or 11th). Practices are once per week on either Monday or Wednesday evening.

8 games (beginning September 21st). ALL games will be held on Saturday mornings/afternoons.

From September 9, 2024 to November 9, 2024

** ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Registration will close on August 9, 2024 and age groups will close prior if they fill up before that date.

US Youth Soccer Code of Conduct

1. Please sit at least 4 feet behind the sideline.
2. Please do not sit on the corner flag, please provide at least 4 feet of space to allow our players to take a corner kick without any interference.
3. Please do not sit behind the goal as it is distracting to our players and can be unsafe.
4. Please do not yell at referees, opposing players, or even your own child during a game! Referees do the best they can, keep in mind they are someone’s child, some referees are as young as 12 or 13 years old. Please do not disrespect them.
5. Yelling instructions to your child… It will most likely be contradictory to what his/her coach may be trying to teach them. Please let the coach do his/her job, you provide positive cheer, encouragement, and snacks after the game. Let’s have fun and enjoy the game!

EVERYONE'S GAME: Opportunities to play through TOPSoccer

US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a recreational sports program for children and adults with intellectual, emotional, or physical disabilities offered only through local US Youth Soccer-affiliated soccer clubs.

TOPSoccer provides people with special needs an opportunity to play soccer in a structured environment that is safe, fun, supportive, and inclusive.

Typical diagnoses of TOPSoccer players include autism spectrum disorders (ASD), Down syndrome, ADHD, cerebral palsy (CP), as well as other physical and behavioral conditions. TOPSoccer allows for participation in a community-based sports program without the uneasiness about a perception of lack of ability.

Unique to TOPSoccer is the pairing up of each player with a volunteer ‘Buddy’ who stays with that player every day, throughout the season, and who supports them and makes sure they are safe and having fun!
