Pride Soccer Club


Intermediate program

The Pride Intermediate program offers U9 and U10 players the opportunity to travel and compete against teams from other clubs within the state without the structured training environment of the Junior Academy.  It is more similar to the Developmental program but with travel and official competition.  Intermediate teams have parent/volunteer coaches. Games are organized and scheduled by the Colorado Soccer Association, rather than Pride Soccer Club, so are subject to the state calendar.

Intermediate teams play two 8 game seasons – Fall and Spring. Four games are played on home fields and four games are played away at the opponents’ field.

Intermediate teams generally practice 2-3 times per week (according to the coach’s discretion), with games on Saturdays.

Intermediate teams receive additional technical training sessions per season from a Pride Soccer Club Staff Coach in a group setting. These sessions will be scheduled at the beginning of the season.

To register for the Intermediate program, log on to your Pride Soccer account and select the Intermediate 2018 – 2019 option or contact the relevant DOC (see below)

Intermediate Program Staff– Teams are coached by volunteers.

Intermediate Soccer Season

U9-U10 Boys and Girls – Fall and Spring Seasons (plus optional winter indoor training and futsal at the discretion of the coach).  Registration for the Intermediate program and for an Intermediate team is a year-long commitment as teams are formed in the summer months.

Teams may also compete in pre-season and/or post-season tournaments which can extend the season in terms of training and travel.  There are no tryouts for the Intermediate program. Our Pride Intermediate teams are formed by a coach bringing an existing roster of a minimum of 6 players. Pride will attempt to complete the team’s roster based on an open registration process, which occurs in the summer preceding the seasonal year.

League games are generally played on Saturdays with occasional games on Sundays. Home games are played either at the Pride Soccer Complex or El Pomar, while away games can take you to all corners of the state.  Our Intermediate teams compete in the CSA (Colorado Soccer Association) leagues and therefore travel to other clubs in the state is required.  CSA determines divisional placement (with assistance from Pride DOCs) and handles the scheduling.

Intermediate Program Fees– Detailed fee disclosure forms are available at the Pride office for all Intermediate, Academy, and Competitive teams. Disclosures are also available prior to tryouts at the designated locations. Pride Soccer Club has always offered some of the most affordable fees in the state. Tournament fees, field rental expenses, and travel expenses are additional fees collected at team levels.

Intermediate Uniforms– Pride Soccer Club is proud to be sponsored by Adidas. Complete kits consist of two pairs of socks, two pairs of shorts, and two jerseys. Warm-ups, bags and additional gear may be purchased.

Intermediate Program Questions and Answers

How many players will there be on each roster?
Intermediate roster sizes differ from team to team based on the registration process.  Rosters sizes for U9 & U10 typically range from 9-12 players, with some exceptions.

Can my child play multiple sports?
Yes! It is a popular myth that Pride players cannot have multiple commitments or play several sports. We have world class athletes on some of our older teams who participate in other sports. Those teams require great commitment, but we feel that well-rounded athletes can contribute significantly to our program.  We will not discourage players from sampling other sports for their player. Players and parents, alike, should simply communicate with the coach ahead of time and work together to ensure a positive experience for all concerned.
