About Rapids Health and Wellness

At Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club (CRYSC) holistic child development is a pillar of our methodology and operations – which recognizes our players as kids and humans first. Our health and wellness support focuses on both the physical aspect of the game through Sports Medicine as well as the mental side via our Sport Psychology resources. Through our partnership with UCHealth, we have a Head Athletic Trainer to lead our Sports Medicine work and we are one of the only youth organizations to have a Director of Mental Performance that oversees much of our Sport Psychology eforts.

Check out our dedicated Sports Medicine and Sport Psychology pages for more information and blog posts that feature a ton of information and resources for our CRYSC members and coaches.
