Real Colorado Competitive Opportunities
The competitive program of Real Colorado is committed to empowering each student – athlete with the skills to reach their greatest soccer potential.  Our staff recognizes that each player has a unique set of attributes and goals.  Our objective as a coaching staff is to accurately evaluate the ability of each player and to place them on a team that will promote their greatest development.  We also offer a pre-season tryout camp in some age groups to better prepare each child for the tryout experience.

For current U11 – U18 Real competitive players, players are evaluated at training and matches throughout the year by their team coach and other Real staff coaches. 

Read here to find out how Real Colorado is improving player placement for our U12 – U19 age groups.

For our fall 2017 U11 tryouts (2007 birthyears), the tryouts will be a factor in the placement, but players performance during the season in both games and training will also be significantly considered.  Real coaches will have made a comprehensive evaluation of current players prior to player selection.  Some of the criteria used in the evaluation process include:

  • Club or team played on for the previous season
  • Technical ability
  • Skill in the air
  • Athleticism
  • Speed of play
  • Movement off the ball
  • Work rate
  • Affect
  • positional need from a higher listed team

Level of Team
Real Colorado has competitive teams in ages U-11 through U-18 for both girls and boys.  There are several levels of teams within each age group.  Each level of team is referred to by its own distinct name.  All teams require a commitment to the team, a consistent work ethic, support of the coach and club expectations.  Be aware that the highest level teams in each age group will have a rigorous training schedule and will compete in several out of state tournaments each year.

Player Placement
As stated above, current Real players are observed throughout the soccer season at both trainings and matches by members of the Real coaching staff to ensure placement on the most appropriate team for the ensuing season. Out of club players and all 2007’s will need to register and plan to attend our tryouts beginning May 30th.  Want another opportunity? Consider coming to one of our competitive camps to experience our staff and see what its all about here at Real Colorado.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  What happens to the team when high school starts?
A:  Age groups U-11 through U-14 compete during both the fall and spring seasons.  For high school age groups, boy’s teams compete in the Spring for club and girls compete in the Fall for club.
Q:  My child wants to play other sports during the year.  Can they still play on a Real competitive team?
A:  We recognize that many players enjoy other sports.  This is an important consideration in team placement for your child.  The higher the level of team, the greater the expectation for training, travel and costs.  When a team travels, our goal is to compete to win the tournament.  If you know that your child will have conflicts with other sports or family commitments, you should discuss that with the coaching staff PRIOR to team placement.  When you accept a team placement, you are committing to all the player expectations for the team. Players should have a positive soccer experience if they are placed on the team that meets their soccer ability as well as personal goals.
Q:  Once my child accepts a position on a team, what happens next?
A:  For the newly formed U-11 teams, you will be notified of a parent/player meeting at which time key information regarding the club and upcoming season will be disseminated.  For existing teams, the Team Manager will begin to distribute information. If you are new to Real, the Team Manager is a volunteer parent who serves as the liaison between the club and parents/players and will be contacting you to discuss registration/uniforms/player accounts and other essential information.
