At FC Boulder, we believe that participation on a soccer team can be a life-changing experience for children and young adults. It is through the game we love that young people experience joy, create deep friendships, develop character, and nurture their physical bodies. As such, we have adopted a motto that drives our club. We believe in Soccer for Life.
This statement can be interpreted in various ways. The following ideas are linked to this driving sentiment, and may be used to define our Club – who we are, and what we hope to provide our members.
Soccer for Life… Our commitments to our players, family and community
We will provide an environment suitable for every player – from the least experienced recreational player to the most experienced college-bound player.
We are fundamentally rooted in our local community, here to serve greater Boulder County.
We pursue the building of character as a driving objective in all that we do – in every practice and in every competition. We demand that all our players and our coaches embody character: the will to compete, the discipline to improve, the commitment to put team before self, and winning and losing with honor and respect.
We allow our passion for this game to filter through every aspect of what we do both on the field, and off the field. We love soccer, and all that the game stands for, and all that it can do to help prepare young people to lead fulfilling lives.
We believe that soccer is a unique vehicle that can promote equity and social justice within our community. FC Boulder is a club where players and families from all corners of our community are welcome. We see this game, and our Club, as a way to help stitch together the diversity in our community.
We are an achievement-focused organization, and we value both effort and results. We are our own toughest critics, constantly looking to compete well at every level, to develop superior soccer players, to develop outstanding teams, to grow the depth and knowledge of our coaches, and to instill a love of the game in our players.
Above all, we believe that participation in the game of soccer can produce joy and fulfillment that may be found in few other places. We embrace the way the game builds strong and healthy bodies, develops the minds of young players, and nurtures emotional well-being. We believe that the game of soccer can foster connection, pride and growth in individual players, with teams and throughout the larger community.
We are making the commitment to our community that FC Boulder will help empower our athletes to become superior soccer players. With teams that service all age groups and all levels of play, we enable our players to compete at their highest potential – from their first soccer experience, throughout the rest of their lives. Beyond the soccer skills themselves though, FC Boulder strives to instill traits in players that are useful long after the last whistle blows – character … sportsmanship … discipline … fitness … achievement.
Whether you’re a 5-year-old child, an 18-year-old college bound student-athlete, or a member of one of the many FC Boulder adult league teams, you’ll count your experiences with FC Boulder as an indelible part of your life. And, we believe you’ll acquire a love of the game that will last your lifetime.
