Rapids for a Day
Rapids for a Day recognizes inspirational kids in our community. The program encourages kids to continually strive for improvement and excellence in their school or community by offering a unique experience. Selected candidates will attend receive game tickets and dinner at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, have the opportunity to watch warm-ups on the pitch, and be recognized pre-game for their efforts. Candidates are chosen on their ability to inspire others, as well as their efforts to demonstrate a positive attitude facing hardships, remarkable commitment to improve their community or extraordinary dedication to academics.
Successful candidates will demonstrate the following:
Community involvement (i.e. tutoring, community service projects, volunteer work or unique home situation such as caring for younger siblings or grandparents, etc.)
Colorado Rapids Player Clinics target kids in youth soccer associations in the Denver Metro area and focuses on basic soccer skills. The private, one hour clinics are led by designated Rapids players, coaches or alumni, and include time for pictures and autographs. Clinics are open to groups in the age range of 10-17 years old and are used to help in the development of basic soccer skills and to help provide a unique environment for youth to be involved with individual players in a positive and cooperative environment. Attendance ranges from 20-40 participants.
