Program Details


Colorado Soccer Association - Advanced League Teams: 11U-19U


General Information: The Colorado Advanced League offers the best competition for Roaring Fork United teams in the State. The league offers eight division levels: Premier 1, Premier 2, Premier 3, Elite, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Teams in this league are single birth year teams, which keeps the age gap between players smaller than the age gap of players on teams in the Mountain Region League or the 10u All-Valley League.

Travel for games will be required. Teams in the CSA Advanced League can be based anywhere from Cheyenne, WY to Pueblo, CO. Each team typically plays four home games and four away games. - the amount of travel required will depend upon the other teams registered in the division/bracket. The Club does its best to create schedules for these teams that minimize travel as much as possible, but travel to the front range will be inevitable.   This league requires more commitment and dedication from players, coaches and teams than is required for MRL or All-Valley League teams. For additional information on the Colorado Advanced League click here.

Commitment: Trainings for advanced league teams will occur two or three times per week, between 3pm and 8pm for 1.5 - 2 hour sessions; exact practice days and times will be determined by each team's coach. Advanced League requires commitment to play and practice. Two season (fall and spring) registration and commitment is required. 

Location: Practices for Advanced League Teams will take place in Crown Mountain Park (El Jebel), River Valley Ranch or Hendricks Park (Carbondale), or at Gates Park (Glenwood Springs) on age appropriate fields. Home games for Advanced League teams will be scheduled at Crown Mountain Park.

Spring sessions will begin the last week of February; games begin mid-March; season ends May 27th.

Registration Process: a two-step registration process has been implemented for players interested in participating in Advanced League teams.
Step One: Interested players are invited to register to the advanced league pool for their age group. Player evaluations are used to place players on appropriate teams.
  • Evaluations are completed by coaches at the end of each season. They can also be completed by DOCs during other playing opportunities (tournaments, summer camps, team training sessions, etc.).
  • Once a player has been placed on a team, the player will receive an email officially offering a spot on a team.
  • There is NO FEE associated with registration to the pool in order to be considered for an Advanced League Team. 
Step Two: Players can accept or decline the spot they have been offered through their online account with Roaring Fork United.
  • Upon acceptance of the spot on a team and completion of the additional registration information, an invoice will be generated for the registration and payment can made.
  • Registration is not complete until a payment has been made or a payment plan has been activated.

Registration Deadlines

Registrations must be submitted by 6/5 (fall) or 12/31 (spring) in order to guarantee placement on an Advanced League team.

After these dates, Advanced League roster spots will be offered to players registered to other programs in order to fill Advanced League rosters before the season begins.

Waitlists

Coaches are a valuable commodity! Each Roaring Fork United team is dependent upon a parent or community member to step into the role of Coach every season. The number of teams RF United is able to offer each season is directly dependent upon the number of Coaches and players we are able to recruit. 

If there is a waitlist for the team or schedule that you prefer, please consider volunteering to coach that group. Not only is coaching the best way to get your player off the waitlist and onto a roster, you will also receive reimbursement for a full player registration fee and a stipend at the end of the season as compensation for your time and effort. 

All coaches will have access to curriculum for each session and will receive on-field support from Lead Trainers and the Academy Director.
