Dear Colorado Storm and Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club Members, Supporters, and Families
We are excited to share with you that our organizations will be joining forces, helping create a more comprehensive club that can further advance the goals and overall experiences of our players.
As one club, united under the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club name, you and all our valued members will have access to a stronger club better positioned to serve our players from three year olds all the way to the Colorado Rapids professional Major League Soccer team.
While this combination provides many benefits, it is important to know that our individual focus and dedication on our players and members will never change. We believe that every player matters, and everyone deserves personal attention and the best possible experience both on and off the field. This combination is designed to allow our coaches and staff to connect even more closely with our players.
Though our clubs are joining forces, we expect very little impact on team formations, practice locations, or the talented coaches and staff members with whom you interact in the first year. Only elite-level teams including boys DA, boys ECNL, and girls ECNL will be involved in immediate integration, and the combination of our player pools will elevate the quality of our teams and club as a whole.
The new, stronger Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club has an exciting future. We will be able to invest more in our players, coaches, staff, facilities, and programming options while keeping membership costs as low as possible. Our coaches and staff will also have valuable development opportunities which we would otherwise not be able to provide, which will continue to improve our player and team experience.
We know you probably have many questions, and while we might not have all the answers at this time, we have put together a Q&A section below to provide you with as much information as possible.
Thank you for your continued support. We hope you’re as excited as we are for our new, united club and our future together, where every player matters.
