We also offer a U10 Academy program in the Sprimng which is recreational and does not offer games against teams outside the club. All academy games are 'in house. Typically, all teams playing both leagues offered by CSA play eight games. All teams in both leagues are also expected to play in at least one tournament during the season. Some teams play in two tournaments. There is an additional cost associated with playing in tournaments.
U8-U10 Coed Recreation with Aspen Rec - Fall Only

There will be two days of practice per week and one day of games that are also all 'in-house.' Additionally, the U10 teams will play 2-3 jamboree tournaments in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Mountain Region League (MRL)
The majority of our teams compete in the MRL. MRL consists of teams located in the Roaring Fork Valley and the Western Slope. All U10 and U12 teams play against teams within the Roaring Fork Valley and do not generally travel farther than Rifle. For U15 and U19 teams, travel can included trips to locations such as Telluride and Steamboat.
MRL provides competition in two different levels of play for each age group. If we have enough players for two teams in an age group, we will offer a Premier team and a Developmental team. If there is only one team in an age group, the Director of Coaching will determine the most appropriate division for the team based on the level of play of the players on the team.
Premier Division: This introductory level of competitive play is designed for those who want to develop their skills though better competition. Players are selected based on ability and skill level. Teams who participate in this division require more commitment with regard to traveling for games, a more demanding practice schedule, tournament schedules and expenses. This division will have promotion and relegation between fall and spring. Teams will be selected through application process ** Certified Referees Only
Developmental Division: This division is designed for players who enjoy the sport for the social aspect of the game while developing their skills through practice and games. Teams are formed through assignment of all interested participants to a team. Travel will be required. Teams are encouraged to participate in tournaments.
In the fall season, Aspen United usually fields one team per division. In the spring season, AUSC usually only fields one team per division.
Advanced State League
CSA Competitive leagues are composed of advanced teams participating at higher levels of competition. Within the Advanced League, there are three leagues with varying levels of competition: Colorado Champions League, Centennial League, and the Secondary League.
The Colorado Champions League is an application-based league, the Advanced League Operations Committee determines placement.
The Centennial League is comprised of teams that are placed by their clubs' recommendation.
The Secondary League is a league for 8th graders who lose their teammates to the high school season, due to their age based on the new US Soccer birth year mandates.
During the spring season, Aspen United offers an in-house recreation style program for U8's and U10's who are just developing players. U10's players with experience should play with U10 travel team. The Academy program meets three days per mid week. Two one hour sessions per week are practices and the remaining one hour session provides game opportunities against players in the academy program. Games are not played against other clubs.
Winter Futsal will begin on Monday, January 14 and run through Friday, March 8. Cost for the program is $100 for 8 sessions. Each session will be run by our Director of Coaching, Jamie Shock, and our Technical Director, Fode Syllas. All sessions will take place at the Snowmass Village Rec. Center gymnasium.
The first weekend for games to be scheduled is April 6/7. The last weekend for games to be scheduled is May 25/26. CSA dictates this schedule.
