WHAT WE OFFER
==> Outdoor soccer: During the
spring and fall seasons, we play against
teams from Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito,
San Pablo, Oakland, and beyond.
==> Futsal: We work closely with
other organizations and the City of
Richmond to provide futsal during the
winter season. This year, we helped the
City of Richmond organize a league of
over 70 teams.

this component is critical. We organize
trips to various colleges and
conferences. This past year, our U19
girls attended a national conference for
Hispanic Engineers in Anaheim, CA. We
will also be offering low cost tutoring

The Richmond United Soccer Club (RUSC) was founded in 1995 by
members of the community
interested in providing youth with an opportunity to play soccer.
Since then, the club has seen many members come and go but
recently has seen a tremendous upward trend in participation. This
is due to the quality of the program, which promotes fun,
development, and education. Moreover, it is due to its volunteers
that have worked diligently to implement strong values and a
vision that encourages our community to reach for higher goals.
We are part of the Alameda Contra Costa Youth Soccer League
(ACCYSL), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting youth
soccer. RUSC is currently composed of 21 teams (14 Boys Teams
and 7 Girls Teams) and a U-6 "pee-wee" program. The 21 teams
range from U-8 to U-19 teams. The U-6 program is available for
boys and girls ages 4 to 6. RUSC welcomes boys and girls (ages 4 to
18) to participate, regardless of experience or
RUSC has grown tremendously over the past four years. We believe
that this growth is attributed to our increased focus on education and
discipline along with the quality of the program. Our mission has
resonated with the community and has led to the increase in growth.
Growth statistics are as follows:

We expect to continue growing with parents and players that share
our vision. There are many more youth that have yet to play team
sports (we estimate that there are thousands of youth in Richmond
who do not play a sport); we plan to reach out and encourage them
to play and engage in a positive activity.
The current leadership within our club is composed of individuals
who are passionate about changing their communities. For more
