Welcome to RFC Grassroots/Rep Program!

 Grassroots is the base from which all rep programs in Ontario are built .  Our Grassroots teams develop through year round training and participating in competitions at the District Level. Our Grassroots teams participate in South West Region Soccer  League, run by South West Region Soccer Association.  Our U13 and up Rep teams participate in the South West Region Soccer League or the Regional level soccer league, dependent on team performance and admission criteria.

Rockwood FC fields Grassroots teams U8-12 and  Rockwood FC Rep teams U13-21 based on interest and resources.
