Rapids "Passback" Donation Program
The Passback Program is a joint effort between the Colorado Rapids, the U.S. Soccer Foundation, Soccer Dreams Without Borders, and Major League Soccer to assist in meeting the soccer needs of all communities.
Since its inception, the Rapids have held collections for soccer gear that has been collected and distributed to underserved schools, clubs, and organizations throughout the country and abroad. Equipment collected by Passback has also been distributed to countries as far away as Africa and the ultimate goal is to collect and distribute a million items of soccer gear in the U.S.A.
New and gently-used soccer equipment is collected prior to designated Rapids games each season. Colorado Youth Soccer Clubs are encouraged to donate a complete set of their team uniforms when buying new uniforms.
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of requests for equipment the Rapids receive each season, thwe are unable to accept indicidual requests.
The Next 2011 Passback Program Event:
- Saturday, May 28 prior to the Rapids vs. Sporting Kansas City game from 5:45-7:15pm outside gates B and G. Every family that donates new or slightly used soccer equipment will receive a voucher good for a Buy One, Get One Free ticket to the Rapids vs. Philadelphia Union game on June 4.
