Sports has provided so much to kids beyond just wins and losses, it has helped provide a connection to peers, to authority, to family. Every player matters at Rapids Youth Soccer and one mom explains the importance this community of support as she navigates life and youth sports with a transgender child.
The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club puts great emphasis on supporting our players each year through a comprehensive college soccer search process, giving them the tools, tips, and foundation to find and make the right decisions for their college soccer goals.
The power of sport supersedes the wins and losses on the field. Players learn more from sport than they’ll ever understand, including some vital characteristics that make great adults, such as quality communication and resilience.
Youth sports and clubs can often be characterized in the community by the parenting culture taking place. On the sidelines or at home, parents need to understand the immense impact they have on their player and team.
We are very proud of the positive culture within our club, both on and off the field. We truly believe that the culture of our club is core to our foundation when working to become the best club in Colorado and the nation. Positive soccer culture extends beyond the team and into the commitment our families on the sidelines make to show support for our players in an appropriate way.
