Level of Team
Real Colorado begins the selection process of grouping together like ability players at U9 and U10 in our Junior Academy followed by our competitive, DA and ECNL programs as beginning at U11.  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.

Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Player Placement

Current Real Colorado Competitive Players:

At Real Colorado, we believe strongly our players are best evaluated over the course of a season versus a single training or game.  To that end, it’s important players and their families recognize that each opportunity to play is a chance to improve and impress, that training and games that fall on either side of the spectrum will get minimized through a deeper look and all help us find the best place for a player to thrive.

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.
