The Premier Soccer Club for Northeast Georgia

About Us

Welcome to Rapids Futbol Club!

We are Northeast Georgia’s Premier Soccer Club. A member of the Georgia State Soccer Association for 16 years, Rapids FC offers soccer for ages 4 thru 18. Our offices are located behind the Ruby Fulbright Aquatic Center in the tower between the four baseball fields.

North Georgia Soccer Association was founded in 1995 to answer the need for a high quality youth recreational soccer program in Habersham County. Located in Northeast Georgia, the program has grown each year of its existence. Currently, NGSA merged with Georgia Mountain Soccer Association (GMSA) based out of White county in the fall of 2014 to become what is now called Rapids Futbol Club. 

The club serves over 1000 children annually from the surrounding counties.  Rapids FC is served by a volunteer board, volunteer coaches and others- a total of more than 100 parents and other friends of youth soccer. The association employs only a part time paid Director of Coaches. Player fees, from concessions, program and venue sponsorships, and gifts and grants from local businesses, individuals and Foundations, provide income for the organization.

The club offers recreation, academy and select team opportunities for children of all skills, ages and genders. The club is incorporated as a Georgia not-for-profit since 1999. The program continues to grow at such a pace that the club has outgrown its original design. The club serves players come from an eight county areas that include:
