Watch as one lucky Rookie meets the Rapids


The Colorado Rapids are proud to announce the Rapids Rookie for a Day program. This program is open to students throughout the state of Colorado who are "quality kids," but are frequently overlooked because they are not extraordinary in any particular endeavor. The program recognizes students who are well-rounded representatives of your school and community. All nominees must demonstrate the following:

  • Soccer Experience
  • Good behavior
  • Positive attitude
  • Good citizenship
  • Community involvement (i.e. tutoring, community service projects, volunteer work or a unique home situation such as caring for younger siblings or grandparents, etc.)

The winners will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of what a day in the life of a Rapids player is really like. Each winner will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend a Rapids practice
  • Receive team merchandise
  • Receive recognition during the game that he/she attends
  • Receive a $250 savings bond
  • Receive four tickets to one of the following Rapids games:
Saturday, May 28 vs. Sporting Kansas City at 7:00pm
Saturday, June 18 vs. LA Galaxy at 7:00pm
Saturday, July 9 vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC at 7:00pm
Friday, August 5 vs. Columbus Crew at 7:30pm
Saturday, August 20 vs. Chivas USA at 7:00pm

Nominations for the 2011 season are closed.  Thank you for your interest in the Rapids Rookie for a Day program.  Please visit the Rapids website in March 2012 to nominate a child for the 2012 Rapids Rookie for a Day.
