The Rapids Soccer Academy is committed to providing educational opportunities for coaches both within and outside our club.

We are currently hosting state and national coaching courses at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in conjunction with Colorado Youth Soccer and US Soccer.

We have created a comprehensive book and video library that will be available to our member coaches free of charge.
