Return of the Rhinos:

Since the programs re-launch, the Junior Rhinos have returned with excitement, accomplishment, and accolades to youth soccer in Rochester. The Junior Rhinos teams have routinely competed in and won trophies in leagues and tournaments in Western New York and the Northeast U.S.
