About Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer
Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club (CRYSC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides one of the nation’s most comprehensive, in-depth approaches to youth soccer- providing opportunities for players three-years-old to professional, from beginner to advanced. In partnership with the professional MLS team, CRYSC has access to resources and support above and beyond other soccer clubs. Serving over 4,000 children every season, CRYSC staffs the nation’s best coaches to provide all children, at all levels, opportunities to enjoy and grow in the game of soccer. In addition to leagues, CRYSC provides beginner to advanced level tournaments, camps and clinics in the summer and winter as well as college preparation assistance.
In addition to the youth programs provided by CRYSC, over 2,000 children are served annually in the nation’s largest youth soccer outreach program. Through our Soccer for Success and Zarlengo programs, CRYSC provides opportunities for underserved youth to have access to the world’s game. These programs focus on aspects above and beyond youth soccer, targeting physical activity, nutrition education, mentorship, and family engagement in communities that need additional support.
CRYSC also offers opportunities with access to some of the nation’s best youth teams through the U.S. Development Academy. These teams connect national team coaches directly with academy clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for future Youth National Teams.
