Real Colorado Soccer is a non-profit, community based organization committed to helping each player learn, grow, and celebrate his or her love of the game. We are dedicated to developing character, integrity, and personal growth for the youth player, student athlete and future leader. We serve our community by continuing a tradition of fun and excellence in developing players, coaches and teams.
Real Colorado was founded as the Douglas County Soccer Association in 1986 as a grassroots effort to provide a positive soccer experience to local youth in Douglas County. In our short tenure, we have recognized unprecedented growth in our membership and scope of programs. We now serve 4,000 families, which comprise over 450 teams. Our membership is rich in diversity, drawing from a wide geographic region and enhanced by the multi-cultural backgrounds of our players. Our staff recognizes the value of each member and embraces our responsibility to develop disciplined, well-rounded and successful student-athletes for the future. Real Colorado actively participates with governing bodies at the local and national level to ensure that we are actively engaged in decisions that impact our youth. Soccer organizations in Colorado are many; but Real Colorado has separated itself at the national level by the caliber of student-athletes who represent our club. Our on-field success generates invitations to compete at the most elite College Showcase tournaments, with our teams comprised of players with Olympic Development Player and US National Team credentials. Consistent recognition by Soccer America as a Top 20 Club in the US is a testimony to our strength as a staff and organization. Our staff prides itself on meeting your personal goals for your soccer experience; from those just wanting to have fun on the field to those who strive to play at the collegiate level.
As soccer has grown, so has your choice of clubs. So why should you choose Real Colorado? Some would say because of our success on the soccer pitch. We are certainly proud of our Top 20 Club national ranking and our staff of professional coaches who have guided us there. But we think the top reason to play for Real Colorado can be seen in the stories of players who began in our recreational program and grew not only in their soccer ability, but also as student-athletes who continued to make their mark in their classrooms and communities long after leaving Real.
