CRYSC 2019 Year In Review
Posted by: Ben Martisius & Jordan Collins | CRYSC Communications
To Our Rapids Youth Soccer Family,
The New Year is almost here and with it a new decade of growth, opportunity, and the unexpected. It’s an exciting time where we don’t just look back on the past, but imagine our future. “Who will we be in 10 years time?” “Where will we be?” And, in the case of Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club, “How will we grow together?”
Change is inevitable, but I find myself filled with optimism when thinking about the people that will impact the future of our Club in 2020 and beyond. From athletes, to families, to staff and coaches, we have built a foundation of advocates dedicated to growing the beautiful game in Colorado. This common goal unites us as #OneClub and we are both humbled and proud to work alongside such incredible people. I can’t wait to see what the next decade brings for Rapids Youth Soccer Club and I couldn’t be happier to have YOU with us on that journey!
Below you will find a look back at what has made the past year so special for the Club. We have made tremendous strides as a sports organization and as a community in 2019, leading to more opportunities going into the New Year than we ever thought possible! THANK YOU for all that you have done for the Club and we hope you enjoy looking back at a terrific year together, as we get ready to move forward in 2020!
