CRYSC + United Futsal + US Futsal

In October 2020, Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club joined the United Futsal Champions Cup Series (CCS), launching Colorado’s most prolific elite futsal program. This partnership introduced Colorado’s soccer talent to the fast-paced world of futsal, previously unrepresented in the Rocky Mountain region. Today, our futsal players and teams compete not only across the nation but even across the world.

CRYSC serves over 300 elite futsal players annually in its one-of-a-kind pathway here in Colorado. With exclusive partnerships with United Futsal, and U.S. Futsal, CRYSC competes at the highest levels of youth futsal in the nation.

In partnership with United Futsal, and U.S. Fusal, along with our 25,000-square-foot indoor futsal facility with the only two indoor full-sized futsal courts in Colorado, CRYSC players are set up to develop as some of the best youth futsal players and teams in the nation.
