Understanding Your Child’s Year-Long Evaluation
The Competitive program provides an opportunity for players who want to learn and develop in an environment that challenges and educates them in the game of soccer. Rapids Youth Soccer is committed to supporting and developing those players that are committed to developing themselves.
Rapids Youth Soccer is committed to a year-long evaluation process of our homegrown players. This year-long evaluation and feedback process provides our players with a complete overview of their progress during their time with Rapids Youth Soccer.
Below is an overview of exactly what is done during the year to provide our players with the most comprehensive evaluation and feedback process.
Player Centered Success Model
The Player Centered Success model puts the best interests of the player first. This is done by understanding each and every players definition of success and helping them achieve it. Every player at every level of their soccer career has different levels of success.
Rapids Youth Soccer is on a two-year cycle for uniform with adidas. Players should change uniforms approximately every two years, which usually falls in line growth of players.
Your registration covers coaching fees, field fees, and administrative fees for the season. You are responsible for additional tournament expenses and tournament travel.
During the regular CSA season, teams generally compete against other clubs across the Front Range. Some teams may travel as far north Fort Collins, as far south as Pueblo or as far west as Grand Junction. Not all ages and levels will compete against clubs in these areas and these trips generally happen once per season.
Tournament travel varies based on the age and competitive level of the team.
All competitive team coaches are USSF Licensed and participate in intensive in-house coach education throughout the season.
