CRYSC 11U-19U Competitive Programs are Colorado’s premier option for growing, learning, and developing in youth soccer. The Competitive Program builds on the foundation players have learned throughout their time with Rapids Youth Soccer, including philosophy, the Rapids curriculum, and The Rapids Way. Program offerings cover the spectrum of player pathways, from new players to competitive, all the way to the top leagues in the United States.

Training and game locations will vary depending on level of play of each team. Game format is played in line with U.S. Soccer directives for small-sided games, which is 9v9 for 11U/12U and 11v11 for 13U-19U. Team sizes may vary depending on age and level of play.

RISE (Rapids Integrated System of Excellence) is a one-of-a-kind youth soccer development platform that houses our club’s curriculum. RISE provides an online space where coaches, players, and members can interact, creating a living and growing classroom. By connecting the CRYSC community online, RISE will open up new educational opportunities for players and coaches, offer a more rewarding CRYSC experience for members, and ultimately enhance the level and consistency of soccer being played across the Club.

The Whole-Part-Whole (WPW) philosophy is a learning model used by the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club to achieve our long-term player development initiative. The WPW philosophy was first outlined by Malcolm Knowles in 1973 and is used in many learning situations, both practical and theory based. When added to a well-planned and well-thought out pedagogy, the WPW philosophy puts players in realistic situations, which should always include decision-making elements.

When coaching soccer, WPW can be used in a variety of ways to break down techniques, skills, or tactics. Most commonly the players are taken from practice with high game context to a low one, before returning to the original practice. When possible, it is best to practice the game, or elements of the game, in their entirety. An example of this could occur in a topic such as ‘Defending in the Direct Game Channel’. What do you do if the individuals or units in your squad don’t understand how to defend 1v1 or 2v2? You break it down.

‘Whole’ doesn’t necessarily mean a game. Actually, in this theory, a ‘whole’ practice could be a series of complex skills that can be broken down into more discrete skills. The ‘whole’ element should be as realistic to the game as possible. The coach looks to pull actions or components of the game and break them down into chunks so the players can understand and digest the information. The coach will then pull those elements back together into the game situation.

Understanding Your Child’s Year-Long Evaluation

The Competitive program provides an opportunity for players who want to learn and develop in an environment that challenges and educates them in the game of soccer. Rapids Youth Soccer is committed to supporting and developing those players that are committed to developing themselves.

Rapids Youth Soccer is committed to a year-long evaluation process of our homegrown players. This year-long evaluation and feedback process provides our players with a complete overview of their progress during their time with Rapids Youth Soccer.

Below is an overview of exactly what is done during the year to provide our players with the most comprehensive evaluation and feedback process.

Player Centered Success Model

The Player Centered Success model puts the best interests of the player first. This is done by understanding each and every players definition of success and helping them achieve it. Every player at every level of their soccer career has different levels of success.

Winter Training

Winter can be a great time to keep your soccer skills sharp. Check out all the programs Rapids Youth Soccer offers to our players to help them stay active over the long winter months.

Rapids Youth Soccer is on a two-year cycle for uniform with adidas. Players should change uniforms approximately every two years, which usually falls in line growth of players.

Your registration covers coaching fees, tournament fees, and administrative fees for the season. You are responsible for tournament travel.

During the regular CSA season, teams generally compete against other clubs across the Front Range. Some teams may travel as far north as Cheyenne, as far south as Pueblo or as far west as Grand Junction. Not all ages and levels will compete against clubs in these areas and these trips generally happen once per season.

Tournament travel varies based on the age and competitive level of the team. Select and Burgundy teams travel out of state for at least one and up to four tournaments and/or college showcases. White and Blue teams only participate in tournaments that take place in Colorado.

Select, Burgundy, and White teams train two to three times per week. 

Rapids Fort Collins provides supplemental winter camps and programs that players can register for. With the exception of pre-season training in February, teams generally do not train during the winter. 

All competitive team coaches are USSF Licensed and participate in intensive in-house coach education throughout the season.

Competitive Camps

Rapids Youth Soccer provides Colorado’s best youth soccer camps. Camps are offered throughout the year for three-year-olds to 18-year-olds, from beginner to elite. Off-season camps in the summer and winter offer the perfect opportunity for recreational players to continue playing and developing their soccer skills.
