Advanced-level adult amateur. Our Men’s Open teams (Premier/United) play in the top amateur league in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region. It is similar to a collegiate level of play. For these teams, we generally recruit male players that have played at a collegiate or similar level. For our Over-30 team, the skill range is still high but a bit more variable.
Costs vary depending on the season (indoor or outdoor), but usually ranges between $60-$80/season for 8-10 game season. Our players only pay league and tournament registration dues and not any of the other costs associated with operating a team (jerseys, practice fields, practice equipment, etc).
We currently have Men’s four teams. Two of those teams are Men’s Open teams that consist of males 18 years of age and older, generally ranging from 20-30 years old. The two other teams are Men’s Over-30’s teams which have players that are players aged 30 years old or older with a couple of underage players allowed as well. We recommend that players aged 30 or older tryout for our Over-30 teams as the commitment and youthfulness of the open teams makes it harder to get involved. The level of play throughout the entire club is highly competitive.
We do not currently have a Women’s team. We have had a Women’s program in the past and are interested in forming one again in the future if the conditions are right. If you are a Women’s coach or a Women’s player that is interested in possibly helping to restart the program, please contact us.
Yes, all of our teams have weekly practices (in Denver-metro area) during the season. Practices are required for our Men’s Open teams and are held later in on weeknight evenings (usually 8pm or after) to ensure most players can attend. Practices aren’t required of our O30 teams but are highly encouraged.
We are willing to give talented players individual tryouts on a year-around basis. We hold traditional tryouts twice a year in late February/early March for the spring league season and in late July / early August for the fall league season. Contacting us prior to these times and attending these tryouts are the best opportunities to get involved.
No, all regular practices and league matches are in the Denver metropolitan area. Players only need transportation to get to these local practices and games. Occasionally, we participate in the regional and national tournaments and those are announced well in advance.
We expect our players to be good teammates and reliable and positive members of the club. We place a high value on communication and commitment. Our club has been created for players that want to excel with a top-level team. While we understand that you have a busy life outside of soccer (don’t we all!), but the expectation is that if you commit to play with FC Denver, that we can expect you at most practices and almost all games. And that you will communicate with your team leadership if/when you will be absent.
