U9-U19 Divisions
Recreational Soccer League

Beginning at the 9U age group (players born in 2010 and older), teams play in the Colorado Soccer Association (CSA) Recreational Leagues. We transition teams into the CSA leagues beginning at 9U as it can be difficult to provide appropriate levels of play for all teams with an “in house” league. Entry into the CSA league is an exciting step for most players. Away games are usually within a 30-40 minute drive from Boulder and oftentimes much closer. Playing groups also transition from school year aged teams to birth year. For more detailed CSA league info please click here!

U9/U10 Divisions
CSA Recreational League – Fall/Spring Seasons

This CSA league is designed for those players who are looking to play in a fun, low commitment, recreational league. Each team will receive one team practice per week scheduled through the league. Volunteer coaches may request a day and location.  Teams are divided into Boys and Girls teams and will play in an 7v7 (including goalie) format each week throughout the 8-game season. Teams in the CSA league will travel to their away games.  Most away games are within a 30-40 minute drive of Boulder.

With CSA league play, teams are determined by BIRTH year, not the school calendar.  Players born in 2010=9U; 2009= 10U and so on.  Players are allowed to play “up” on a team, but playing “down” is not allowed.

U11-U19 Divisions.
CSA Upper Recreational League. Spring/Fall seasons

The CSA Upper Recreational Leagues are designed for anyone wanting to continue their soccer development in a low commitment, fun recreational league. Each team will be entered into the CSA Recreational League in their correct age division. Teams are built based on players’ birth years. Leagues will be separated into Boys and Girls teams and will consist of one to two practices per week with a 9v9 (including goalie) match each Saturday during the 8-game season.  Coaches are paid a stipend for their time and commitment. Anyone interested in this coaching opportunity should contact Ashley Riley (ashley.riley@fcboulder.com) and will be required to go through a short training course.

Travel time to away matches may be longer as there are often fewer teams in the upper recreational age groups. 11U-15U, 30-60 minutes for most games, but there may be the occasional longer travel time.  16U-18U play in the north metro division, travel till is generally less than 45 minutes.

With CSA league play, teams are determined by BIRTH year, not the school calendar.  Players born in 2008=11U; 2007= 12U; 2006=13U; 2005=14U; 2004=15U; 2003=16U; 2002=17U; 2001=18U; 2000=19U and so on.  Players can play up on a teamplaying down is not allowed.
