Excel (XL) Program

River City Excel (XL) In-House Program

Our XL program invites soccer players of all ages and experience levels to reach their full potential through high quality coaching from our River City coaching staff.  Players will increase their comfort level with the ball through a comprehensive training program to develop ball mastery skills, understand when and how to move off the ball, and gain confidence in their overall ability with an emphasis on speed, agility, and fitness.

The goal of the XL Program is to keep players playing.  Not all players can make the premier teams or are able to commit due to other activities.  Our XL Program bridges the gap and allows players to continue to develop so that they can stay active, learn and improve with the goal of playing for their middle school or high school teams.   

The XL Program provides a pathway for players to be selected to premier teams on a game-by-game basis based on individual team needs.

  • 8-week program begins on April 3rd and runs through May 22nd
  • One training session per week at Fields4Kids – River City coaching staff will rotate with each age group offering detailed training in a fun and inviting atmosphere.
  • One competitive game on Saturdays at Fields4kids (pick up style – play with and against different players each week)
  • No weekend travel
