Recreational

Our Recreational Program is for any player ages 3-14, regardless of experience. The program places an emphasis on skills and sportsmanship in a fun and safe environment. Participation and enjoyment of the game are paramount, and every player has the opportunity to train with an Altitude FC staff coach on a weekly basis. The recreational program is organized by grade level.

Our approach to training balances learning the technical side (individual) and the tactical side (team) of soccer. To improve, players need the strength, stamina and dexterity to manage the ball. At the same time, to work as a team they need to know where the other players are, what players are in each role on the team, how to respond to the team captain’s direction, and when to pass the ball to another team member or attempt a turnover from the other team.

We currently offer the following options in our Recreational Program:

  1. WeeKicks: For our U3 – U4 (ages 3-4 years old)
  2. Recreational Team Division Pre – Kindegarten – 4th Grade
  3. Recreational CSA Division: U11 to U14 (2007 – 2004 Birth Years) (teams play in CSA recreational leagues, with home games in Evergreen)

The Developmental Program

In the Developmental program, the basics learned in the Recreational program are refined into a foundation players will rely upon as they reach more advanced game play. We emphasize technical mastery of skills that will players a true head start and advantage as they progress. Altitude FC is among a small handful of Colorado soccer clubs that puts such an emphasis on the development of the U8-U10 player.
