About River City Rangers

For the Player

The River City Rangers Soccer Club is a competitive soccer program committed to providing the highest quality environment for Select players grounded in the philosophy of “For the Player.”

By providing the best coaches and training facilities in Central Austin, we focus on our most important goal: the growth and development of the individual player, both on and off the field.

The Rangers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization comprised of experienced coaches and dedicated volunteers, all of whom strive to help players
achieve their full potential as athletes and individuals.

Our vision is built on the following foundations:

Organization. The Rangers governing organization is comprised of a united group of individuals committed to every player’s development. To maximize the player’s benefit from our programs, the Rangers employs experienced coaches  who encourage player development that is consistent with our adopted philosophy of “For the Player".  A key advantage to the Rangers program is the assignment of dedicated, licensed, professional team coaches to each of our teams forming a special bond and relationship between players and coach not found in other clubs following the “trainer” system.


Full Participation and Financial Structure. The Rangers strive to keep costs at a reasonable level while maintaining the highest quality player development programs. Our goal is to make Rangers select soccer available and affordable for all interested players.  Player's costs are also minimized by promoting full participation and volunteerism among the players and their families. Each player and the player’s family support the operation of the Club in order to keep all costs at a reasonable level.

Partnerships. With North Austin Soccer Alliance (NASA) we created the Austin Soccer Development Group (ASDG) to promote field development and management in Central Austin.  ASDG currently manages 3 field locations: the Quarry and Ranger Soccer Park (RSP.)


Foundation and Competitive Programs. To enable the players to reach their fullest potential, the Rangers secure the best training and coaching personnel at each age level and maintains premier soccer facilities for training and competition. The Rangers program promotes skill development from age 6 through age 14 for Recreational Academy players (U7-U10) and developmental select players (U11-U14) and a competitive program  (U15-U19)  for select players who desire to compete at the higher levels of competition.

Since 1991. The River City Rangers Soccer Club was founded in 1991 and is dedicated to recognizing and building individual talent within the framework of a well-defined full-service competitive soccer club. The focus and dedication of the Rangers coaching staff and volunteers never wavers. Scott Placek was the co-founder and first Director of Coaching with the club.
