The Girls Academy and Competitive programs at FC Boulder have been designed to provide the most appropriate playing environments for all girls interested in playing competitive club soccer. Please take a few moments to learn more about our programming options outlined below. We welcome all interested players to participate in the beautiful game with FC Boulder!
U14-U19 Girls Competitive Program
The season has been a ton of fun so far. As a program, our coaches have worked extremely hard to get their new teams fit and playing a very attractive style of soccer. The girls have really shown improvements in their technical abilities which has allowed them to really use the ideas their coaches have introduced! Keep up the great work coaches and players!
Optional Technical Tuesdays have been a huge hit – we just passed the midway part with four weekly sessions under our belt. Topics have included individual work on the ball, 1v1 moves, passing and receiving both in the air and on the ground, as well as lateral movements with the ball to create new passing angles. Every week we try to play a little at the end so the players can use their newly learned skills and the girls that attend all receive their homework or the “next steps” from the session. We turn up the music and get well over 1000 touches on the ball each time. Come join!
The Colorado Shootout weekend was an important benchmark of our season with all of our teams participating. Thank you to all the players, coaches and parents who supported the soccer this past weekend.
Just a reminder that training times have been adjusted to accommodate the diminishing daylight. Please hear from your coach on your specific team’s changes.

The FC Boulder Academy represents the highest standard of play and expectation in FC Boulder for U11-U19 boys and girls. In the U11-U14 Academy age groups, players are introduced to the habits, attitudes, and playing standards required to become an elite youth player. At the U15-U19 levels in the Academy, players are prepared technically, tactically, physically, and psychologically for successful playing and academic careers in college, or entree into the professional game.
The FC Boulder Competitive Program is designed to provide a positive, engaging soccer experience that accelerates the growth of all players in the program. Our Program Directors and Coaching staff are passionate about the game, and take great pride in creating the contexts in which players are inspired to thrive. The Competitive program serves athletes of all abilities — those who are newer to the game, as well as those players who have the drive and aspiration to excel in high school and college soccer environments. The Program is tailored to the diverse, multi-faceted life of Boulder County families, and yet maintains an unapologetic drive to produce players that will contend for places within the FCB Academy program in subsequent seasons.
