- "Riverside Soccer Parents Association" would be perfectly justifiable. It's a noun stack. Interpreted in the same way as any other noun stack, it refers to an association of soccer parents in Riverside.
- "Riverside Soccer Parents' Association" is equally valid. Parents' is a plural possessive, meaning of the parents. This phrase works out to mean an association belonging to soccer parents in Riverside.
- "Riverside Soccer Parent's Association" may look a little off the mark, since it seems to imply that there is only one parent involved. However, the parent could be a generic parent. If you are a soccer parent in Riverside, this association is for you.
- You could even use the name "Riverside Soccer Parent Association". That's a noun stack, again. When a noun is used attributively, the singular can have a plural meaning. A car dealer doesn't sell just one car. A stamp collection usually has more than one stamp.
