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. 

Having played on just about every patch of grass in northwest Florida we can rightly say one of our greatest assets is Morgans Sports Complex located in Destin, Florida. Professionally maintained by the brilliant staff of the City of Destin, Recreation Sports department, it accommodates all of our teams with perfect grass,  goals for 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11 teams, clean restrooms and central location along Hwy 98.

RAD FC is proud to announce the formation of RAD FC North Crestview Division

Combining RAD FC with Crestview Soccer Organization (CSO) and Okaloosa United Soccer Academy of Crestview (OUSA), RAD FC North Crestview Division will offer soccer families the best of local community Youth Recreational and Academy Soccer Programs as well as advanced Travel Teams to fulfill their vision of being a full service soccer program to the Crestview community.  

Matt Oswald comments, “I am extremely excited to work with Rich Wolf and the entire CSO/OUSA staff  to continue to offer their successful Recreational and Academy Crestview Soccer Programs with quality coaching that serves the needs of the Youth developmental player. I will continue to work hard to advance the Youth soccer Player by offering advancement opportunities and player successes at all levels.”

As with our other regional club soccer programs, this combination will result in RAD FC drawing from a wider geographical base to include players from neighboring communities. Training sites and facilities will continue to be located throughout Crestview at the Garden City Sports Complex at 6330 Garden City Road and Indoor Soccer Training at GPS in Valparaiso at 425 North College Blvd. as well as Morgans Sports Complex in Destin, Florida.
