On March 3rd and 4th, 2018, Rapids Youth Soccer sent teams to the St. Louis Scott Gallagher ECNL Friendlies. Girls and boys played elite teams from around the country throughout the weekend. The tournament’s objective was to expand our teams’ understandings of competition and grow closer as a club.
This year has already seen tournaments throughout the nation with coaches using these trips to help our players better understand the club’s core values. Coaches have been hosting club culture nights where players from different age groups and teams gather to highlight the importance of a united vision.
Injury represents an inexorable consequence of sports. Many of us are aware of the physical consequences of injury, however, the lack of awareness surrounding the psychology of injury means some mental wounds may never heal. Join us for a new series highlighting the mental aspects of sport injury rehabilitation.
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.
The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club created the Next Wave Coach Academy to provide female soccer coaches opportunities to learn, grow, and succeed in youth soccer leadership roles.
It’s the question on everyone’s mind, how do we make The Eddy the best and safest indoor soccer facility it can be? As we worked to design the optimal training space, we poured months of research into selecting the top-quality synthetic turf on the market. After considering all the factors, we selected the brand new AstroTurf LigaTurf Legend product.
One of our Rapids Youth Soccer parents recently reached out with a great article discussing how important it is for soccer clubs to be transformational not just transactional. While we often stress the importance of our player development model, highlighting the growth and achievements of our teams, this metric of success is primarily transactional. This is why, over the past couple years, we have invested heavily in the culture, community, and experience our members have within Rapids Youth Soccer.
