About Our Club

Real Athletic Development Football Club (RAD) was founded in 2012 along the Emerald Coast of Florida in Destin with a focus on building the foundation for competitive youth soccer. 

All of our coaches are soccer players, meaning they understand the game more than the average textbook coach. You can’t instruct at a higher level on how the game is played unless you’ve been in these kid’s shoes. So in a sense they are like grown-up kids, still playing the game that they learned to love when young.

There is a new Web site to become a USSF soccer referee in Florida:

First time visitors will need to create an account on the  site, and then follow the instructions and links for Entry Level -> Referee -> Grade 8. The course is completely self-paced and consists of approximately 10-12 hours of online material, followed by an online test. Certification will be valid until Dec 2018. After passing the test, please contact Mike Rarick (850-496-0770) to receive additional information on uniforms and referee assignors.

This area has a shortage of referees, which are needed for our tournaments and local playdates.
