The following principles are fundamental to the mission of FC Boulder:
We will provide an environment suitable for every player – from the least experienced recreational player to the most experienced college-bound competitive 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 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 soccer to filter through all that we do – both on and off the field. We love soccer all that the game 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 welcomes players and families from all corners of the Boulder County area. We see this game, and our Club, as a tool to help stitch together the diversity in our community.
We are an achievement-focused organization – on the field, in our office, in the boardroom – we value both effort and results. We are our own toughest critics, 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.
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 an 8-year-old child or middle-aged adult, 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 – for all the right reasons – that will last your lifetime.
