U11-U18 Competitive Teams


The art of developing effective training and competitive programs for young players lies in knowing which kind of practice and competition the player is ready for at any stage of their physical and mental development.

In an effort to recruit, educate and prepare elite players for our most competitive teams, the Rapids Academy will field Colorado Youth Soccer teams in the Under 11 through Under 17 age groups.



  • Players on CYS state league teams will pay registration and club fees similar to those of the other top clubs in the area.

  • U11-U14 teams will begin training in the summer and will compete in the fall and spring seasons of Colorado Youth Soccer’s state league.
  • U15 and U17 teams will compete in the winter of '09 and spring of ‘10 and will play in the CYS state league. These teams will run in conjunction with our U16 and U18 Development Academy teams.

All Rapids Academy teams will train and play their home games at Dick’s Sporting Goods ParK.To speak with an Academy staff member about player development opportunities, please call the Academy hotline at 303-727-3575.
