Recreational Soccer Program
Toms River FC offers something for every player. The mission of TRFC is to provide our member families and children with a place where they can develop the skill and knowledge to play, as well as respect and enjoy, the world's game of soccer in a safe, fun and challenging environment.
Recreational Soccer Program:
This program is tailored specifically for children in the U7 and U8 age groups and serves to enhance the skills taught in the Clinic program, while introducing these children to the concept of competition.
It also provides a place to play and learn for the older child, in the U9 through U12 age groups, whose skills, experience, or level of interest/willingness to commit might not be sufficiently strong to allow them to succeed in the travel team program.
Toms River FC is a community based, all-volunteer program. In order to keep TRFC soccer thriving, it is important that we have parents and community members volunteer their time to help provide children an affordable place to develop soccer skills within their own community.
Often times we are faced with the problem of having more children register than we have teams with coaches. If we wish to continue and grow this organization, we MUST have volunteers. PLEASE consider volunteering your time to be a coach, assistant coach or co-coach (with another parent or two)
We would be honored to have you join the Toms River FC family. Our mission is to provide an environment where young soccer players from diverse backgrounds are guided and inspired to reach their full potential both on and off the field. We are completely committed to providing our community with a model of quality youth development, education, and inspiration through the sport of soccer.
As a parent, you already know it takes all of us working together to help our children reach their full potential. We encourage all of our parents to get involved and volunteer to help the Toms River FC and their teams.
