MRFC is committed to a holistic fun and enjoyable learning player first approach. We pride ourselves in developing excellence in the individual and team performances through a consistent and comprehensive training methodology program.
We strive to provide our players with professional level training, to offer the best possible playing environments, and to develop and nurture the skills and confidence necessary to play at the sport’s highest levels. We pride ourselves on the ability to get a player to the next level, collegiately or professionally.
Teams participate in two to three training sessions per week, league play, and tournaments throughout the year. Our teams compete in the Elite Academy (Boys), Development Player League (Girls) and the Washington Premier League (Boys & Girls). League games take place on weekends, with occasional double-headers, and may be local, statewide, regional or national, depending on the team’s division and age.
Mt. Rainier Futbol Club participates in the Washington Premier League (WPL) and is committed to developing competitive soccer in the Northwest and making it accessible to everyone with a passion for the game. The WPL is a state and region-wide NPL league sanctioned by US Club Soccer.
The Elite Academy (EA) League is composed of member clubs that represent elite competition clubs in their market. EA is a national platform that gives clubs the ability to a full development model and pathway with top competition and exposure. EA competition consists of both conference and regional/national events. Conference competition typically takes place outside of the high school season, allowing players to participate. The EA consists of seven (7) conferences across the country with MRFC competing in the Northwest Pacific Conference.
The Develop Player League’s (DPL) mission is to develop the player and empower the person in a purposeful and memorable environment. The DPL competition consists of both conference and regional/national events. Conference competition typically takes place outside of the high school season, allowing players to participate. The DPL consists of nine (9) conferences across the country with MRFC competing in the Northwest Conference.
Playing premier soccer is more expensive than recreational or club select programs. MRFC’s fees are broken down by player age groups and are very competitive with our neighboring clubs. MRFC offers monthly payment plans and financial aid based on need. It is a priority of MRFC to make playing competitive soccer possible for any player with desire, drive and dedication.

*Credit card transaction fees are 2.5% + $2 per transaction. These fees are paid up front with the registration fee.
Player program fees are collected to cover the following expenses: coaches fees, association, state and league fees, referee fees, field and facility rentals and maintenance, and administrative costs. Additional costs include Kit costs and Team fees. Other costs related to specific team activities are the financial responsibility of those teams and players (see Team Fees).
Team fees are unique to each team. This amount is calculated by the team manager and treasurer with the input of the coaching staff to cover the cost of team activities such as tournament entry fees, coach’s travel, group travel, team bonding activities, etc. This amount depends on the level of the team (the DPL, EA and older teams do more travel and enter more expensive tournaments/showcases so their team fees will be higher). Typically, team fees will be discussed in detail at your first team meeting along with a payment schedule.
Mt Rainier FC is committed to making competitive soccer accessible for all players and families. Financial Aid can be applied for during registration and is awarded on a need basis only.

Club Fundraisers – The Club offers a variety of fundraising opportunities a year that will help support the families in need of financial aid. The events are great ways for families to work their volunteer hours that are required when receiving financial aid.
Team Fundraisers – If opportunities arise, individuals and teams can offset costs such as an individual’s Club or Teams Fees and major costs for teams such as travel expenses or additional tournaments.
