Northern Soccer is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization

SOCCER @ 7000ft

 for SPRING 2022
Development & Select

Scholarship may be available for some programs. Please contact the office for details. 



This is the Development League that plays (mostly) at The Downs at Santa Fe on Saturdays. All games will be at The Downs at Santa Fe U-9/10 and U-11/12 teams may have one out-of-town game at either Los Alamos, Taos or Las Vegas.

The first practices will be held the week of March 14th. The first game will be March 19th. There will be a nine week season with eight-game days.  There will be no games Easter weekend.

Our program is 100% volunteer-led.  Our coaches are all volunteers and we cannot run our program without them.  

We are looking for coaches who can run a one-hour practice session during the week and attend a one-hour game.  Soccer experience is not necessary.  The club will provide equipment, practice curriculum and coach education.  


All coaches must pass a background check and complete concussion and SAFESport training online.

Please consider volunteering to coach.  At one time most of us played organized sports when we were young and our coaches were also volunteers.  Give back and volunteer.  Volunteering has never been more fun.
You may sign up to coach under the volunteer section of the registration.

We reserve the right to change age groups by combing two age groups, changing gender-specific divisions to coed or make any other change that Rio Rapids Northern Soccer Club sees as appropriate to ensure everyone gets an opportunity to play.  There is a $5 non-volunteer fee.  This helps us secure services from private contractors for things like field paint etc.

Anyone who needs to use previous credits or would like to donate previous credit to the club may email Marco.Ortiz@NorthernSC.org.  We will provide a unique one-time use coupon code via email.



SELECT Program

This is our Select program that plays all games in Bernalillo.  Practices will be held at Salvador Perez or Alto Park until daylight savings on 3/13 then we will hold practices at The Downs at Santa Fe.

All players will be required to order new uniforms. The new uniform kits for the 2021-2022 season will be good for two playing years.  The old uniform kits are not compatible with the new uniform kits.  The uniform kit costs about $100-$200 depending on the options you select.  Please order uniforms early if selected.

Official workouts begin in 2/14. Duke City (DCSL) play usually begins in March 5th. 

Teams may elect to participate in tournaments in and out of the state.  Tournament fees are not included in the Select registration fees of $435 for the Spring season, this fee has been reduced due to a late start and no indoor training.

Scholarship is available to families who make less than $50,000 a year that will be verified via 2020 tax return.
