Looking for a fun, well-organized, mountain-based soccer program for your child? You came to the right place!
Peak to Peak Soccer is in its 17th year of providing non-competitive soccer to kids ages 5-11. This late summer/fall program is geared toward teaching any young soccer fan basic skills with an emphasis on sportsmanship and teamwork while having fun. Practices take place on the Nederland Elementary School fields immediately after school for 1-2 practices a week lasting 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on the age. Games are played every Saturday against the other league teams from Idaho Springs and Gilpin County.
Peak to Peak Soccer was originally started by local moms with the intention of getting kids involved in soccer regardless of ability level and with the goal of teaching skills beyond how to win. Good sportsmanship, how to be a team player and positive role modeling by coaches and parents are a focus of the program alongside learning ball handling, soccer rules, and team dynamics. Encouraging parental involvement is a key component of this volunteer run program. From coaching to hanging nets, providing concessions and prepping the fields for game days, parents are asked to play an active role in making the season a success.

Age Info: By asking for your child’s date of birth, we are making a uniform cut-off date for all three communities (Nederland, Gilpin and Idaho Springs) to create an experience that is fun and safe for all ages. Please remember that “U” means “Under”. July 31st is our date that your child must be born on or before to play in each grouping.
U7: 5-6 year-olds (born on or before 7/31 or at least starting Kindergarten in the fall)
U9: 7-8 year-olds
U12: 9-11 year-olds
We understand that some children want to and are able to play “up” a level. We leave this decision to parents and/or coaches. There will not, under any circumstances, be a reason why a child will play “down” a level. We feel strongly that “playing down” discourages the values we are trying to instill in our soccer program--learning the game and having a good time doing it!
