The Colorado Rapids recently launched the Rapids 10s, a program offered exclusively to Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club 10-year-old players.

The inaugural event was hosted by the Rapids' own number #10, midfielder Martin Rivero, on June 6 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park where each member received a #10 jersey from Rivero, an exclusive VIP tour, and posed for a group photo on the pitch. Membership also includes other great benefits and events throughout the season.

The Rapids 10s draws its name from the number 10 which has often been associated with the most creative offensive player on a team, and has been worn by players such as Pele, Diego Maradona, Landon Donovan and Lionel Messi, among other greats.

The Rapids 10s is open to members of the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club as part of the Colorado Rapids organization’s continued dedication to the growth and development of young players.
