Fall Recreation



Neuse River FA Recreation Soccer:
Neuse River Futbol Alliance (NRFA) is a non-profit organization and member of the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) and follows recommendations set forth by the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA).

NRFA Recreation is a combination of several communities within Eastern Wake and Johnston County consisting of the following former programs Johnston United Soccer Association (JUSA), East Wake Soccer Association (EWSA) and Archer Lodge Soccer (JUSAAL).  As of 2020 all recreation programs are Neuse River Futbol Alliance (NRFA).

NRFA strives to provide the local communities with a positive recreation soccer experience for children from ages 3 through 18.  Recreation Soccer is the foundation for any community soccer program and lays the groundwork for teaching children the fundamentals of the game. The importance of recreation soccer for early development cannot be understated. We are not focused on wins vs. losses, rather we place emphasis on player development.  We value all players, regardless of their skill level.

NRFA follows NCYSA and US Soccer's guidelines when determining age group placement for players which changed on Aug. 1, 2017, in which youth players in the United States register for youth soccer teams will be based on their year of birth. . Please refer to the Age Table 
for actual birth date ranges and age groups for the current soccer season. Exceptions can be made for players to play up to the next older age group, but players are prohibited from playing in a younger age group. If you wish for your child to play in an older age group, please contact the Recreation Administrator at [email protected]  

All coaches at the Recreation level of play are volunteers, and most are parents of players...just like you.  These coaches teach age appropriate skills with the heaviest emphasis placed on fun, sportsmanship, and healthy competition.  If you are interested in coaching should contact the Director of Recreation at [email protected]

Recreation Uniform Ordering

NRFA Recreation Uniforms - Uniforms are required for all players. Your player's uniform is a separate fee and will be ordered directly from the vendor. Parents will only need to reorder uniforms when a piece of the uniform is lost or your player out grows it. Make sure to order your uniforms by 8/22 to ensure delivery by the first game on 9/11.

  • This uniform kit by our new vendor Macron will be able to be used from season to season by your player.  Moving to this plan allows each family to order uniforms when needed, which minimizes costs for parents because they can wear their uniforms longer.  It allows us to create a more consistent brand image and keeps us in line with modern soccer organization trends.

  • U4-U6 players are required to purchase a red jersey

  • U8-High School are required to purchase a recreation kit that includes 2 jerseys, shirts and socks. When ordering uniforms please review the size chart for accuracy.


  • Macron Sizing Chart- Macron is an Italian company so you will want to order up one size from normal.

Coach Signup

We need Recreation Coaches!

We are always looking for parent volunteers for coaching. Without volunteer coaches we will have larger teams which means shorter playing time for your player. We are excited to work with our coaches and offer more education opportunities and giveaways. If you are able to help coach please fill out our coaches interest form.
