Rapids Elite Futsal

Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, small-sided football game that originated in South America in the 1930s. It is widely played across the world and is the small-sided football format that is officially recognized by both UEFA and FIFA. Ever heard of Messi or Ronaldo, Ronahldino or Neymar? These are some of the very best soccer players in the world who credit futsal as a huge part of their development and the reason why they became the player they are today.

Futsal is a game of imagination and creativity, deception and lies, that uses teamwork and synergy to outscore the opponent. Players are required to manipulate and master the ball and invade and exploit space in a high-pressure, high-reward environment. Subsequently, futsal is an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a-side format of the game.

Futsal is played on a smaller, hard court, mainly indoors. It is played with two teams of five players, one of whom is a goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted which allows the game to remain at a high pace throughout. Futsal is played with a smaller, low-bounce ball on a court delimited by lines. These rules all encourage the game’s emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and technique. In partnership with United Futsal along with our 20,000+ sq/ft indoor facility with two futsal courts, we are set up to develop some of the best youth futsal teams in the nation.

Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club (CRYSC) Elite Futsal offers high-level, skill-based players the opportunity to bring their talents to the courts and progress through United Futsal Squads!

Our futsal players will get 50+ hours of elite training. Players may participate in one of three squads: Champions Cup Squad, Showcase Squad, and Training Squad.

Squads may participate in a variety of national events, including the Regional, National and World showcases in Las Vegas and Orlando.

Refund Policy

Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club Elite programming follows a strict no-refund policy. Once you and your player accept an invitation for a Rapids Elite 11U/12U, ECNL, EDS, or Futsal team, and make a payment, all registrations are non-refundable. The refund policy is in place for a reason. It allows us to budget appropriately and provides coaches, facilities, administration, and additional resources that are necessary to run a non-profit youth sports organization.

If your player tries out and is invited to join a United Futsal team, and is later placed on a training team only, you may opt not to participate in the program and receive a refund of your initial registration fee. 

The club may, however, in its sole discretion, consider refund requests under the following: (1) a player moves more than 50 miles from a Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club region prior to the start of the season, (2) a player becomes injured or ill and can no longer participate in the season, or (3) any other exigent circumstances the club deems necessary or appropriate. Please note that in order for refund requests to be considered due to injury, such requests must be made within two weeks of the player’s injury/illness and must include a physician’s note for verification. No refunds will be provided for any reason after the third scheduled game of the season. All refunds, if granted, are subject to a processing fee.

Any travel expenses, including plane tickets, transportation, accommodations, coaches’ travel expenses, and coaches’ per diems purchased for team travel are non-refundable.
