PRIDE Soccer Club serves youth players ages 4 through 19 by offering Recreational (U4-U14), Intermediate (U9-U10), Junior Academy (U9-U10), and Competitive (U11-U19) soccer programs. We are also a member of the US Soccer Developmental Academy (DA) which includes elite-level boys teams in the U12-U14 age groups and the Boys ECNL program for U14-19 elite level teams. Recreational teams are formed by school or geographic area. Intermediate teams are formed from players within the Recreational program who desire a more competitive environment. Junior Academy, DA and Competitive teams are formed through a tryout process to ensure that players are placed according to their ability levels.

A Proud History
PRIDE Soccer Club was formed largely through the efforts of its four original founders – dedicated parents who saw the increasing popularity of the sport of soccer, the rapid increase in the number of participants in Southern Colorado, and the need for a high quality organization to coordinate and supervise a family oriented soccer program.
In June 1994, the El Paso PRIDE Soccer Association was incorporated in the state of Colorado. During its first year, PRIDE Soccer Club coordinated 45 teams with 430 children participating in its organized soccer programs. Today, PRIDE Soccer Club is one of the largest youth soccer clubs in the state of Colorado with approximately 4500 players on over 300 teams.
Pride Soccer Club, as a member of Colorado Youth Soccer (CYS) and US Youth Soccer, adopted the KidSafe Program to promote the health, safety, and protection of youth soccer players. These programs support US Soccer Federation’s Rule 4044, which mandates risk management programs within each National State Association….. [ click here ] for more information
