Who We Are
The Rochester River DogZ FC is comprised of a group of very passionate soccer players both past and present, coaches, managers, and supporters of the beautiful game. The ownership group consists of Marc Mandell, Markijan Lylak, Robert Raufeisen, Nick Mojsovski and Kurt Odenbach.
The group is
also spread throughout the Rochester region, from the inner city to the
suburbs and surrounding counties. Not only have they been involved in
local high school soccer, but also have close ties to the travel teams
in the area, including Greece Cobras, DMS, Rochester Futbol Club, and
Empire United, as well as numerous collegiate teams.
The Group consisting of the above mentioned members have a stronghold in the local menís RDSL divisions. This will provide an avenue to recruit youth players into the menís divisions, further preparing them for collegiate competition and beyond.
Beginning with only one team a couple years ago, to combining with the Ukrainian American Sports Club in 2013, the Group has grown to manage 6 teams, which includes 2 teams competing in the menís open premier division, which placed 2nd and 3rd during the 2015 summer season. The remainder of the teams includes a menís division 2 squad, menís over 30 open and over 30 premier squads, and a womenís division 1 squad.
Over the past 2 years, the Group has raised over $30,000 dollars to support our club teams and their operations. We hope to carry our knowledge and business over to the NPSL to benefit Rochesterís soccer community, as well as its youth, menís and womenís leagues.
