Team Makeup: U10, U11, & U12 teams should be relatively equal in ability. U13-U14 tryouts are held and teams are split by ability into Competive 1 & Competitive 2. U15 through U18 teams are structured as participation allows.

Playing Time: U10, U11, & U12 teams should strive for equal playing time for all players. As players mature, playing time can be administered depending on effort and participation in practice. Playing time administered based solely on ability is discouraged. U13 through U18 teams should determine playing time on effort and ability of players. With continued maturity of players, team selection based on creating the best possible squad is encouraged.

Added Players: Mid-Year Added players would follow these guidelines:

  1. Create new team
  2. Add to 'Competitive Rec' roster
  3. Placement by Club Head Coach

Winter Season (Indoor League): This program is regarded as an extra soccer event. Costs for this program are independent and separate of base Club fees.

Player Pool Region: 'Competitive Rec' teams would normally pull players from Durango/La Plata County. 'Select' teams would pull the most qualified players from the Four Corners Region.
