We are putting all of our focus and energy into making our club and city proud during our Open Cup run. This is the biggest event we’ve participated in, and we’re putting everything into the preparations. Please help spread the word!
Let’s take a look at how 2016 is progressing so far:
Spring …. √
We made it to the Spring finals in each of the three divisions we play in (Men’s D1 Open, Men’s O30 D1, Men’s O30 D2)! A major accomplishment and reinforces our status as the top club in Colorado. We also held our memorable 10th Anniversary party where we introduced our new logo and our inaugural board of directors.
Summer …. √
We participated in two tournaments (Boulder & State Cup) and entered two teams in State Cup. All three squads made it to their respective championship games and Masters won their O30 State Championship. The championship game streak continues!
NEXT UP: Fall!
Our Fall Tryouts are here. This Sunday July 31st and following Sunday August 7th to be exact. Interested players signup here: http://goo.gl/IUwcDt

Fall is where we’ve had a majority of our title success with all five of our D1 league championships coming in the autumn, including last years Fall league title. Plenty of work ahead for us to get there, and it all starts this weekend. US Open Cup qualifying is on the horizon this Fall as well, so PLENTY to be HUNGRY for.
We are proud to represent Denver and look forward to another passionate soccer season on the pitch!
