Academy Select Player Placement – Players will be observed and monitored for this program during the spring 8U season (team training, staff training, and team games). 8U kickaround dates will be offered in late Spring for all 8U players to join the staff and coaches for informational meetings and playing opportunities.  Formal placement of players will take place in early summer from information gathered by staff and team coaches as well as playing observations.

9U – 10U Academy Select Boys and Girls: The Academy Select Program is designed around the competitive program model.  Teams will be formed on ability and will be instructed by an EDGE coach, 3 times per week. The program will place emphasis on advancing techniques, fundamentals of soccer tactics and sportsmanship. Teams will operate in the Colorado Soccer Association state-wide leagues playing 7v7.  The Academy Select program is directed by the 9U-10U Director of Coaching.

Practice: 75 min. per day, 2 times per week + 60min. 'Free Play Friday'

 Uniforms:

  • Home Games: Red Jerseys, Red Shorts, & Red Socks
  • Road Games: Black Jersey, Black Shorts, & Black Socks (2012 birth year still use white jersey for road games)
  • Uniform Information Click Here

Other Notes:

  • All coaches will ensure each player receives 50% playing time in each game, providing the player meets the team’s practice requirements.
  • Real Colorado EDGE discourages coaches and parents from emphasizing winning and losing. The emphasis should be on the players’ participation, development, and enjoyment of the game.

Team Formation

Teams will be formed as ‘pools’, with each pool consisting of a minimum of 18 players that make 2 teams for a game day. Each pool will have their own coach and will practice together twice per week. The third practice will be all pools practicing together in 'Free Play Friday'.

Timeline (provisional)

Early June – Places are offered by the club and families have 7 days to accept or decline. The acceptance of a place in the program is not a placement on a specific pool, it is a place in the program as a whole.

Early August – Teams will begin practices as an entire program. From here, pool coaches will determine which players are suitable for each pool and level of play in the state league. This will form a primary assignment for each player.

Heavy focus on Technique

9U Information Page

Year 1 of the Academy Select program focuses on individual player development, as outlined in the Academy Select Overview.

Sessions have a focus on individual skill development and simple tactical decisions. This is drawn from the 2 year curriculum that has been developed by the club, in alignment with the Long Term Development Pathway that RCE implements across all ages.

A sample week is outlined below:

Team/Pool Practice 1 – 75 minute session with Head Coach.
Sample Session

Team/Pool Practice 2 – 75 minute session with Head Coach.
Sample Session

Free Play Friday – 60 minute session with RCE Staff Trainers/AS Coaches

Players from 9U & 10U practice together with a focus on playing the game. 4v4 & 5v5 games are the priority with training pools occasionally taken to the full 7v7 format too. Coaching focus on this night is more about facilitating the games with reminders of what was covered in the 2 team/pool practices. This gives players the freedom to express themselves and also demonstrate an understanding of the program objectives.
