It is available to interested players age 4 - 18. Arsenal Colorado / Mighty Kicks (3-4 year olds) CLICK HERE. There are 2 seasons (spring and fall). Each season runs for 8 weeks.

Fall 2017 Registation Policy
(Fall season: September 9-October 28)
Youth Recreational Registration is available online, in the office, and by mail.
There are important changes to the recreational program that were implemented last fall based on mandates from U S Soccer. (You will find complete details about the mandates here.)
It is important to understand that recreational age groups are different than competitive age groups. We want recreational players to have the ability to play with kids in their school grade. However, competitive teams (including PDL) will have to follow state and national mandates and play with kids who were born in the same year.
ARSENAL COLORADO RECREATIONAL LEAGUE FALL 2017 / SPRING 2018 FORMAT
Teams will be divided much the same way as they have been in the past, allowing for players to enjoy the game with others in their grade. Teams will be formed based on school preference with combined teams formed as necessary based on school geography and player numbers. Players will be allowed to play up one age group in order to align with future PDL or competitive placement and other reasons with staff permission.
Small-sided games were introduced in the fall season as well. This changed roster sizes for players in the Kindergarten - 5th/6th grade (U6-U12) age groups. Kindergarten and 1st grade (U6 & U7) age groups play 4 v 4 (roster size 7); 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade (U8-U10) play 7 v 7 (roster size 10); and 5th/6th grade (U12) play 9 v 9 (roster size 12). Pre-K (U5) (3 v 3) and middle school (U14) and high school (U18) (11 v 11) will continue with the same roster sizes (6 & 15).
These changes have prompted FCSC / Arsenal Colorado to make other changes in our registration process as well. Players will have the opportunity to request a coach (not guaranteed) and to request a player(s) (not guaranteed) they would like to be placed with. Please recognize that as we transition to small-sided games it will not be possible to honor all requests – priority will be given to players who request to return to their team from the previous season.
We have embraced these changes and our intent is to continue to provide an excellent experience for our members while maintaining our club values.
Space available registration will open on July 25.
