“The purpose of the Rapids is to provide a competitive, structured environment where young soccer players assemble to improve soccer skills and to learn positive life principles. We strive to help our membership achieve their highest potential in sports, in community, and in life through integrity, hard work, respect, competition, and fun.”
Welcome To The Twin Falls Rapids. The Twin Falls Rapids is a competitive program within the Twin Falls Soccer Association (TFSA). We are the oldest, largest, and most successful soccer club in south central Idaho. We are a proud, long standing member of Idaho Youth Soccer Association and US Youth Soccer Association. We work closely with the Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department as well as local schools to assist them with their soccer programs. The Rapids Soccer Club was instrumental in establishing the Sunway Soccer Complex utilized by thousands of soccer players every year.
The Rapids program was formed in 1994 by a group of parents and coaches interested in the development of our youth through their participation in competitive soccer. From the start we realize it takes more than knowledgeable, quality coaches to run a successful soccer club. Every year our wonderful volunteers spend thousands of hours lining fields, fundraising, marketing, coordinating events, hosting tournaments, etc. We are a licensed and insured 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The purpose of the Rapids is to provide a fun environment where outstanding young players are assembled to improve their soccer skills and to learn positive life skills through hard work and competition. The Rapids program aims to provide the best coaching staff available to compete against similarly organized teams from other towns and regions. The Rapids soccer program is committed to continuously improving the quality of training for our players. Our coaches are nationally certified and our players have the opportunity for continued skill development through our summer soccer program.
Member fees offset the competitive tournaments for that season, up to 8 months of top quality soccer training and conditioning and our summer program. It is our goal to provide scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to participate due to financial constraints. Our major fundraising event, the Canyon Rim Classic Soccer Tournament, provides funding for scholarships, training equipment, and our summer soccer program open to all area youth soccer players.
This spring tournament brings over 100 teams from 5 states and over $1 million in revenue to local businesses. Lets play soccer!

Rapids In The Community
Our annual Canyon Rim Classic has helped raise thousands of dollars for area youth groups like Safe House of Magic Valley, Boy Scouts, and more. This event also brings in over $1 million of much needed revenue each year to area business. Our volunteers spend countless hours helping line most area soccer fields as well as volunteer field maintenance to ensure safe quality fields for players.
