Philosophy

Real Colorado EDGE is dedicated to providing a FUN, but challenging soccer environment for the children in our program. The emphasis is placed on FUN and player development, through an age-appropriate training program. Each child is challenged at a level which is appropriate for their stage of development. The EDGE prides itself in offering the most enjoyable and rewarding soccer experience for our players, coaches, referees, and families in the Arvada and surrounding communities.
 
Real Colorado EDGE begins offering Recreational programs for players starting at the 4 and Under age group and is an option for players all the way through the 19 and Under age group.

Starting at our 9 and Under League Program, we have different levels of competition, some of which are tailored toward the Advanced (competitive) program.

At Real Colorado EDGE we have Recreational soccer leagues for all players in the 4U – 19U age groups.
