Your child should be available to play on all weekends April 6-26. Please see our new attendance policy (below).

Practice, Game and Tournament Schedule Information

Tentative Practice Schedules may be available when registration opens but are subject to change due to field availability and coaches' schedules.

Firm practice schedules will not be available until the end of August in the Fall season and the beginning of March in the Spring season.

  • U10's practice twice a week for 75 minutes each session
  • U12's practice three times a week for 90 minutes each session
  • U15's and U19's practice three times a week for 90 minutes each session

Game schedules will not be available until mid March. All teams will play a total of 8 games - four home games and four away games. Games begin on April 7. Players are expected to attend all 8 games.

Game schedules are determined entirely by CSA. We can (and do) provide special requests that suit our school's calendar for vacations, outdoor ed programs, etc (which are different from the majority of the schools and school districts that comprise the Mountain Region League) but CSA makes all final decisions on game schedules -- which includes the start and end dates of the season for all games.

All AUSC teams are expected to participate in at least one tournament.

Our team managers do their best to reschedule games to accommodate our unique school calendars. However, those requests should be limited to school calendar conflicts. Parents should not ask managers to reschedule games because of personal commitments and conflicts or other sport and activity conflicts.

AUSC TEAM OPTIONS AND COLORADO SOCCER

Aspen United Soccer Club teams currently play in two different leagues offered through Colorado Soccer Association (CSA). We also offer a U8-U10 Academy program 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. 

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 mostly 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. 

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. 

U8-U10 Academy

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.

Team Commitment Agreement and Attendance Policy

Upon registering your child for any AUSC teams, you will be asked to accept the following agreement:

I understand that by registering my player for the AUSC soccer program my child is committed to attend all practices and games which includes travel to any of the other Mountain Region and All State League soccer club locations (which may be located outside of the Roaring Fork Valley). The quality of experience and success of teams in AUSC is dependent on the full participation from all players. The inability to attend all practices and games may, at the coach's discretion, jeopardize a players' playing time and status on the team.

Families should be prepared to transport their children to all practices and all 8 games. Game absences should be limited to one game per season and only in the event of extenuating circumstances. Our teams cannot effectively field teams and compete when players do not routinely attend practices and play in all games. If your child cannot commit to play in 8 games, you should reconsider whether he/she can play soccer this season. Any players who do not routinely attend practice and have missed more than one game will be subject to diminished playing time during the games he/she does attend (at the discretion of the team coach).

Uniforms

New Uniforms for 2018-2019

We have selected a new uniform for the Fall 2017 season. They will be used through the spring of 2019. All registrants must purchase a new uniform this season.

Uniform Ordering and Costs

If you did not purchase a new uniform in the fall, you will need to purchase one for the spring season. Uniforms costs are additional and purchased through soccer.com. Once registration closes, you will receive an email directly from soccer.com providing you with a link to purchase a uniform. All jersey numbers will be assigned through soccer.com

Practice jerseys are included in the registration fee 

Miscellaneous Registration Information

Registration Fees have increased this year to reflect the need to adequately cover the costs to efficiently run our club.  Unlike other clubs, AUSC pays to have licensed coaches and subsidizes referee pay beyond what the state offers. We also employ a part-time Director of Coaching and a part-time Club Manager.

Team placement is based on Player Assessments and is made at the discretion of the Director of Coaching and coaches collectively. If there are too many players signed up for one team and not enough for two teams your child may be designated as practice player at a the reduced practice player price. This placement will not be determined by the order in which you register but by player assessment made by the Director of Coaching. If you refuse this option prior to the start of league play, a full refund will be given minus processing feesAspen United also reserves the right to refund any registered but not rostered travel team player.

All questions regarding team placement should be directed to the Director of Coaching.

Soccer is a team sport. Attendance at practices and games affects the experience for all of the players on the team. Any player unable to fulfill his/her participation responsibilities may not be able to participate in the travel league. Any participant who does not have consistent game and practice attendance (even if it because of commitments to another sport or activity), jeopardizes their playing time.

     Colorado Soccer Association Fees
