Spring Training Schedule

Spring GK Sessions:
Goalkeeper Training Sessions

‘Plan B’ is a modified schedule utilized for movement of training when the grass fields are closed due to inclement weather.  With access to turf field and by reducing the area and time frame for training,  ALL teams are now able to train regardless of inclement weather.   We feel this is the best collective solution for our players at the club.   Please be cautious with the higher volume of traffic at the complexes.  Spring 2018 PLAN B SCHEDULE

Communication Protocol

It is the Club's hope that a clear communication protocol will provide the Club's members a standardized mechanism for voicing their questions and concerns. The Carolina Rapids Board and Executive Director believe that to effectively operate an organization that is growing like the Rapids, it is important that the Club establish communication protocols that best support the efficiency of the organization while retaining the personal touch that our members deserve.

Any parent who has a specific concern should first make an attempt to solve it through the following paths (boys' & girls' paths below):
