What We Believe?

At First Touch Sports, we believe that we can make a positive difference in the lives of young people – one relationship at a time. Our formula for impacting lives is really very simple. We create the opportunities that they are looking for…the chance to be with friends, to work hard and play soccer and to test their skills versus other teams in the Richmond area…and by doing this, we earn the right to teach them important lessons about sports and life. It’s what we like to call a Win-Win!
