Roaring Fork Valley Soccer Club

Advanced League Teams

Teams competing in the Advanced Leagues will be required to travel the front range (from Cheyenne, WY to Pueblo, CO) for games. Each team typically has four home games and four away games. 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.

Advanced League Teams are more age specific than MRL teams. The number and ages of advanced league teams offered each season will change, but may include:
  •  11U or 12U Advanced League Team
  •  13U or 14U Advanced League Teams
  •  15U Advanced League Team
  •  17U or 19U Advanced League Teams
Trainings for advanced league teams will occur two or three times per week, between 3pm and 8pm; exact practice days and times will be determined by each team's coach.


REGISTRATION FOR THIS PROGRAM IS BY INVITATION ONLY

Please contact DOC, Travis Yoakum, with any questions regarding advanced league invitations.

MRL or In-House League Teams

The all-valley league is currently only an option for the u10 age group. If you are registering a u10 player, please indicate your preference for MRL or the in-house league. Teams that participate in this league will not be required to travel outside of the Valley for games.

All u12+ age groups will participate in the MRL or Advanced Leagues.
 
The MRL is western slope specific and will require travel within the western slope for games.

2021-2022 Age Groups

This means that the 10u (2012 birth year) and 9u players (2013 birth year) register together in the 10u bracket. When teams are created within the age group, birth year, skill level, and any preferences indicated during registration are considered.

If you are unsure of the appropriate age group for your player, please find their birth year in the chart below and register them to the appropriate age group indicated under "Registration Eligibility."
