What is RFC Elite?

Welcome to RFC Elite Program!

The Rockwood Elite Program will consist of teams  trained by former professional Aaron (Azza) Kerr and is designed to encompass all aspects of Rep soccer. Players are expected to have a high level of commitment and the Elite Program provides the highest level of training required to maximize individual player and team development.  Due to the Covid Pandemic soccer has a different look.  The site is undergoing updates-please stay tuned!
