rsync max depth?

Good Morning,
I'm trying to write a command which copies the folder tree from a source directory to a target directory. The problem is I only want the first level of folders from the source directory, can I specify a maximum depth with rsync? Heres what I have so far:
rsync -av  -f"+ */" -f"- *" "source/folder" "dest/folder"

rsync -OPTIONS `find SOURSE -maxdepth 1`  DESTINATION

It wouldn't work if files are too many. Then you need to write a script with a loop.

After taking a break for a minute, the answer became fairly obvious *facepalm*.
rsync -av  --exclude '/*/*/' -f"+ */" -f"- *" "$1/" "$2/"

Yeah, just tell to exclude future directories.
