Competitive Program

Overview

The BC United Competitive Program is designed to provide a positive, engaging soccer experience that accelerates the growth of all players in the program from U11-U19. Our Program Directors and Coaching staff are passionate about the game, and take great pride in creating the contexts in which players are inspired to thrive. The Competitive program serves athletes of all abilities — those who are newer to the game, as well as those players who have the drive and aspiration to excel in high school and college soccer environments. The Program is tailored to the diverse, multi-faceted life of Boulder County families, and yet maintains an unapologetic drive to produce players that will contend for places within the BC United Academy program in subsequent seasons.

The Competitive Program provides an appropriate team context for the full range of players seeking a serious soccer experience — from inexperienced players, to others who have the talent and ambition to one day accept an invitation to join the BC United Academy Program.

The BC United Competitive Program maintains high standards for all coaches in the program, and places great value on coaches who can inspire and teach players of all ability levels. Coaches in the Competitive Program are thoughtfully mentored to provide a rich learning environment for their players, and are required (minimally) to obtain the US Soccer Grassroots 11v11 Diploma (though most coaches in the program far exceed the minimal standard).

We will be forming Competitive teams at every age group (U9–U19) for both boys and girls. Typically, teams in the U11-U12 age groups will have 12-14 players and teams in the U13-U19 age group will have 15-18 players. Teams will be formed with the intention of grouping players of similar ability.

Competitive teams will play across all levels in the Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) leagues. We will seek to place teams into leagues where they will experience the appropriate balance of success and challenge.

Teams may opt to participate in various tournaments both locally, throughout Colorado and out-of-state.
