Skyline Competitive Program 11U and up

The Skyline Competitive Program is designed for players who are interested in playing at a higher level of competition, and under the guidance of a paid professional coach. The Competitive Program starts for players at the age of 11U with teams available for players up to the 19U age-group. Skyline focuses on individual development so that each player reaches their full potential in the sport of soccer.  Competitive coaches use age-appropriate training methods and the Skyline Player Development Plan to create the ‘complete player.’ The complete player excels in these four major areas: technical ability, tactical intelligence, physical abilities, and psychological characteristics.  Players are given annual assessments by each team coach as part of their own unique individual player development plan.
  • At the 11U-14U age groups, players must make a TWO SEASON commitment  FALL AND SPRING.  At 15U-19U age groups, players make a one season commitment (High School Girls play Skyline in the Fall, High School Boys play Skyline in Spring)
  • Games are played on Saturdays and some Sundays, with times varying throughout the season. Games are played in a home/away format with opponents. In the Competitive program, families are expected to be able to travel outside of the Denver area for away games.
  • Teams train three times per week for 75 minutes at a location and time determined by Skyline. All of our practice fields are located in the southeast region of Denver. Main parks include Kennedy Soccer Complex and Harvard Gulch Park.

Teams are formed after the tryout process.

  • For ages 11U-14U, the tryouts are held at the end of May to early June based on sanctioned dates from Colorado Soccer Association (CSA).
  • For 15U-19U girls, the tryouts are held at the end of May to early June based on sanctioned dates from Colorado Soccer Association (CSA).
  • For 15U-19U boys, tryouts take place in mid October to early November based on sanctioned dates from Colorado Soccer Association (CSA).
  • All players who wish to participate in the tryout process must register online in the months leading up to the tryout dates.
  • Most coaching assignments are finalized by early May; however, any unformed assignment will be left as TBD.
  • Players are encouraged to attend ALL tryouts dates for their age group. The more the coaches can see the players, the better evaluation the coaches can make.
  • Players who are unable to make tryout dates or are interested in joining the Competitive program after tryouts must contact the Director of Coaching.
  • Each player will be notified of the results of the tryout within 24 to 72 hours of the final tryout session. Players have 24 hours to respond to a team offer/position.
  • Players are expected to be at all matches and training sessions. Players who are unable to attend a training session or match must let the coach know in advance.
  • Players are expected to wear proper training/match uniforms at all team sessions and games
  • At the Competitive level, playing time is not equal but earned. Playing time is at the coaches’ discretion and takes into consideration absenteeism, tardiness, or general behavior issues in addition to skill of the player, quality of opponent, and competition.
  • Please view our updated Covid Protocols in equipment that can and cannot be taken to games and practices.
  • Competitive players’ age 11U-12U use a size four (4) soccer ball and players age 13U and older use a size five (5) soccer ball.  Players must wear shin guards at all training sessions and games, or you will not be allowed to participate.  This is a safety issue.
  • Parents are encouraged to support their player and team in a fashion that breeds a positive and respectful learning environment.
  • As such, it is imperative that coaches are able to teach/instruct the game to players in games and at practice.
  • To best ensure a positive learning environment, parents should refrain from directional coaching on the sidelines while applauding positive plays and encouraging effort.
  • After all, parents are best role models for our players: please respect our players, coaches, opponents, and referees.
  • Remember: “Let the players play, let the coaches coach, and let the referees ref!”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

HOW ARE TEAMS FORMED?

Teams are formed through the tryout process.  At tryouts, players will be evaluated in four key areas: technical ability, tactical intelligence, physical attributes, and psychological elements.  Once tryouts are complete, Skyline coaches contact each player within 72 hours to notify them of their result.  Players who receive an invitation to play on a Competitive team have 24 hours to accept/decline their invitation.

WHEN ARE COMPETITIVE PAYMENTS DUE?

Once a player verbally accepts their position with the coach, they musty register online within 24 hours for the appropriate team. The fees will appear on that player’s account and a minimum non-refundable deposit of $250 is due.  Families are welcome to pay the full amount at that time if they wish. Players who do not pay the full amount must select our online payment plan. 11U-14U will be offered a 6 month payment plan. 15U Secondary / High School team will be offered a 3 month payment plan.  Payment amount required on each payment plan date is dependent on the player’s age group.

MY PLAYER IS UNABLE TO MAKE TRYOUTS, NOW WHAT?

For players who unable to make tryouts but are interested in playing in the Competitive, please do the following: Register online for tryouts as though your player was able to attend, and contact the Director of Coaching howard@skylinesoccer.org for 11U & 12U and George@skyiensocer.org for 13U and up to be certain that your player does not get marked as a “no show” at tryouts.

CAN MY PLAYER PLAY UP?

At Skyline, we do have a few players who ‘play up.’ but these players are the exception.  All players who play up at the Competitive level will need approval from their Director of Coaching.  When determining whether a player is ready to play up, the player must be ready soccer-wise, physically, and socially.

HOW DO I KNOW WHO WILL BE COACHING EACH TEAM?

Most coaching assignments will be confirmed and announced in early May. For any teams who do not have a confirmed coach, the Director of Coaching will be in charge of the team until a coach is confirmed.  While Skyline makes every effort to avoid in-season coaching changes, there are circumstances where a coaching change will be made.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PLAYER IS NOT PLACED ON A COMPETITIVE TEAM?

If your player is not extended an invitation to player Competitive soccer, your player will have a home in the recreational program.  Skyline works diligently with these players to ensure they have find a home to continue playing soccer.

Competitive teams compete on a state level within the Advanced Leagues run by Colorado Soccer Association.  Most games will be in the Denver metro area; however, there is a potential for games to be as far away as Steamboat, Vail, Grand Junction, and Pueblo. Typically, each Competitive team will have at least one game per season where travel time is greater than two hours each way.
