  • 8U Academy ProgramSkyline is excited and proud to announce a new soccer ACADEMY program starting Fall 2021. The Academy program is a pathway for recreational players and teams U8-U15, looking for more player and team development and exposure to a more competitive environment. The Academy programs allows teams and players the benefit of staying on a team with friends, but adds in a weekly developmental training session with Skyline Staff coaching. The staff coach trains the entire team once a week and focuses on Technical and Tactical training to further develop each player and the team as a whole. This is a great blend of recreational players and teams becoming more competitive players.Skyline continues to have Recreational and Competitive programs, but saw a need for the in between. Academy program has the benefits of recreational with the staff training to become more competitive. This program is offered for players U8-U18.
    1. Teams are recreational with a desire to become more developed and competitive.
    2. Teams receive 5 training sessions with a Skyline Staff coach for practice.
    3. Skyline staff coach will work closely with team coach to assist team coach with team and player development
    4. Teams will play at the appropriate level of CSA Front Range League or Interleague.
    5. Players will be evaluated by Skyline Staff coach, making them a known player should they want to play competitive later.
    6. Staff training makes sure recreational players aren’t falling behind in their development and prepares them for later competitive and High School teams.
    7. Season runs the same as recreational, Fall and Spring.

    If you have questions or want to learn more about the Academy program, please contact Bobby Warner, Bobby@skylinesoccer.org

Skyline’s philosophy is: “To Teach, To Inspire, To Excel.” We strive to instill this philosophy in every player, at every level – regardless of their experience or age. To achieve this, we apply an age-appropriate training model as laid out by Skyline’s Player Development Plan. While players and coaches have objectives each season for player development, the main goals for the 11U-18U Recreation Program are as follows:

TECHNICAL: Players improve their ball control, ball striking, and ability to win 1v1 duels each season.

TACTICAL: Players improve their ability read the game in attack and defense each season.

PHYSICAL: Players improve their physical attributes such as speed, flexibility and endurance each season.

PSYCHOLOGICAL: Players improve their ability to work in a team environment, display respect for others (coaches, teammates, opponents, and referees), and learn life lessons each season.

OVERALL: Players enjoy playing the game of soccer that helps creates a life-long passion for soccer.

Communication, Cooperation and Respect

Mechanics of Individual Skills

Motivation, Attitude and Self Confidence

Choosing When, Why, What, and Where in Games

Returning players have first priority to the team they were on previously but they must register prior to the registration deadline. From there, we will begin rostering new players, according to player’s registration date and registration requests to teams that have space remaining. If there are enough new players, Skyline will look to build new teams. Skyline will work with newly formed teams to confirm a volunteer coach and practice locations/times/days. In instances where there are not enough players in an age group to form a team, Skyline will seek team formations across age groups (e.g. a combined 11U/12U Boys team.  In Skyline’s history of nearly 50 years, these teams have been extremely successful.

When you register be sure to fill out the request fields so we can find a team that best fits you! Always remember that we do offer refunds if we are unable to find a team that fits your family.

  • At the 11U-19U Recreational level, players should expect to play a minimum of 50% of each match. Exceptions may occur at the coach’s discretion for disciplinary reasons such as absenteeism, tardiness, or general behavior issues.
  • Players should expect to play all positions through the course of the season at the discretion of the coach.  Playing different positions is vital to the development of the ‘complete player.’
  • We understand things come up in Recreational player’s schedule.  Players who are unable to attend a practice or game are expected to let the coach know of these instances..
  • Players are expected to wear cleats and shin guards under their socks at all practices and games.
  • Players are expected to bring an inflated soccer ball and water to all practices and games.  11U/12U Recreational players use a size four (4) soccer ball, 13U and older Recreational players use a size five (5) soccer ball.

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 and instruct the players in games and at training. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH PROGRAM TO SIGN-UP FOR?

When deciding whether to register your play for the recreational program or the competitive program, please consider your player’s long-term interests. If you believe that your player is interested in playing with a higher level commitment under the direction of professional coaching then take a strong look at the Competitive program.  If your player is interested in the fun, social aspect of soccer, the recreational program is more likely the right program for you.  Either way, players are able to change programs during their soccer career (although players are not allowed to change programs during the season).

WHERE ARE GAMES PLAYED?

At the 11U – 18U Recreational level, games are played on a home/away format with other clubs.  All home games will be held at Kennedy Soccer Complex or Hampden Heights Park.  Away matches will be played at the home parks of the home club/team.  Travel for games is required for and may include places such as Arvada, Aurora, Castle Rock, Centennial, Colorado Springs, Evergreen, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and Westminster.

HOW DO WE KNOW IF A GAME OR PRACTICE HAS BEEN RAINED OUT?

For home games and practices, please check the Skyline Field Status on our homepage or call the weather line at 720.317.2882.  During the week, the weather line is updated by 3:00p and by 7:30a on weekends.  Do not check any other places for Skyline home fields. For away games, you will need to check with that club to find our their field status.

WHAT IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RECREATIONAL AND ACADEMY?

The main difference between Recreational and Academy is that a skyline coach works with the team on team concepts, team formation, team positioning, team building.  To make the team the focal point and work as a team for game day preparations. There will still be technical development involved in every session but more working as a team to build players confidence.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REC AND COMPETITIVE TEAMS?

There are three main differences:

1. Competitive team are formed through a tryout process.

2. Competitive has an elevated level of commitment financially and time wise.

3. Competitive teams are coached by professional coaches and typically practice 2 – 3 times per week.

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 need approval from the 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?

Skyline strives to announce coaching assignments as early as possible; however, timing of the announcement is dependent on when a volunteer coach is  confirmed.  In instances where a new team is formed or a coach has not been confirmed, Skyline will set the first team practice as a volunteer coach is searched for.

WHAT HAPPENED IF MY CHILD IS NOT PLACED ON A TEAM?

Skyline strives to place each registrant on a team.  In the rare case that Skyline is unable to place your player on a team, a full refund will be given to the family.

ARE THERE ANY PROGRAMS IN THE WINTER?

To check get more information about winter programs, please visit the Camps and Clinics webpage. Some teams participate in summer leagues or tournaments.  These leagues and tournament are done outside of Skyline at an additional cost.
