Colorado Rapids announce plans for 41,000 square foot youth facility


The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club plans to continue its quest to establish the beautiful game at the youth-level with a brand new 41,000 square foot training facility. The CRYSC announced the plans on Wednesday for the facility.

“Our members have been asking us to provide a Rapids facility for years,” said Aaron Nagel, executive director of CRYSC. “With the current growth and momentum our programs are showing, we felt now was the time to deliver.”

The current prediction is for the facility, which is located just blocks from the Lowry Sports Park, to open in August of this year. It will provide CRYSC players with small futsal fields, speed, agility and quickness (SAQ) areas, weight training areas and classrooms for studying. According to CRYSC’s director of coaching, Andrew Kewley, the facility will benefit players of all ability levels.

“What’s most unique about this opportunity is that it serves every player – from offering beginner programs for toddlers to elite athlete training for players in the national team pool,” Kewley said. “It enables us to better build on the high-quality programming already being offered by the club.”
