SPRING 2022 RECREATIONAL PROGRAMSWe
do not offer any winter programs, and the status of the Spring 2022 season is
uncertain. We are hoping to have a spring season for the Peewee Program for boys
and girls born in 2014 and 2015, and the Girls League for girls born between
2007 and 2013, in Van Cortlandt Park. However, the Parks Department will not be
able to confirm that there will be a field available for us until early
February. If we are able to have a spring season, registration will start in
mid-February and the season will run from early April to mid-June. As plans
develop, we will update this information.
(Peewee Instructional Program and
Riverdale Soccer League Girls Division)
There is no Boys League in the
spring; the Boys League plays only in the fall.

GRAHAM WALKER (1955-2022)
The Riverdale Soccer Club and the
entire local soccer community mourn the sudden and unexpected passing of Graham
Walker on January 17. Graham was one of the original founders of the Club in

Agnes, and three sons, John, Martin and Chris, all of whom played soccer in the
Club's early days.
