REAL’s Competitive Soccer Programs
When a player becomes part of Real Colorado’s competitive soccer program, they begin a journey that ultimately not only strengthens their game, but also teaches the life skills of teamwork, dedication, friendship and being part of a supportive community. Governed by the guidelines of U.S. Soccer and Colorado Youth Soccer, our program builds each player along their own unique development path, growing them individually based on their abilities and as part of a successful team.
Our competitive soccer program is nationally and consistently recognized as one of the cornerstones that has led Soccer America to rank us as a Top 20 club in the U.S. year after year. Our teams have won championships at the local, state and national level, including multiple State Cups and National Championship titles.
Real players have gone on to play for colleges and universities across the country as well as the Women’s Professional League, Major League Soccer, and the US Soccer National Team program. Our players often build lifelong relationships during their time with our club and give back to Real after college graduation with their time and talents.
