Middle School League
The Pueblo Rangers pioneered the concept of a recreational soccer league that was organized by the players' middle school, rather than organized by the players' location. This would give the league the look and feel of the existing High School League that the players would be entering in a few years.
This league, as with our younger Recreational leagues, is coached by qualified coaches, at the discretion of our Program Director. All coaches and staff must complete a thorough background check, Safesport training and concussion training to ensure the safety of our children. The high-quality coaching that the players receive will prepare them to smoothly transition to high school soccer in a few years.
