WHY RICHMOND UNITED?
Our Focus: Richmond United isn't just
about soccer. We believe that it is a tool
with which we can encourage our youth
to persevere and pursue a brighter
future. While we wish our teams success
on the field, the true measure of success
are developing responsible youth who
succeed in life.
Affordability: We believe playing youth
soccer should be accessible to everyone.
Whether you play competitive soccer or
recreational soccer, our registration fees
are some of the most affordable in the
area. Our fees are all inclusive, meaning
that you're uniform, field fees, and
referee fees are all included. We work
hard to strech your fees and even try to
include a soccer ball, trophy, and
summer camp during the year.
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.
Competitive Soccer: For U-10 through
U-19 teams, we offer a competitive
program through CCSL, from Bronze to
Premier. You can play against some of
the best competition throughout the Bay
Futsal: We work closely with other
organizations and the City of Richmond
to provide futsal during the winter
Educational Activities: For us, this
component is critical. We organize trips
to various colleges and conferences. In
the past, our U19 girls attended a
national conference for Hispanic
Engineers in Anaheim, CA.
With the help of the sport of soccer, to develop
our children into responsible citizens who will
become the future leaders of our community.
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 25 teams (18 Boys
Teams and 6 Girls Teams) and a U-6 "pee-wee"
program. The 25 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

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 information, click here.
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
