Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament

COVID-19 Update: At this point, the tournament is still on as scheduled. However, this will depend on local guidelines issued by Colorado and Boulder.

The 2020 Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament will take place July 25 – 26 with the following divisions:

  • Women’s Open (age 18+)
  • Co-Ed
  • Men’s Open (age 18+)
  • Men’s O40
  • Men’s O48

Here is why you should participate:

  • 94% of 2019 participants rated RMAST as better than or equal to other tournaments they have played
  • The fields are outstanding at the Pleasant View Soccer Complex – 86% of participants rated the fields as better than they have played at other tournaments (another 11% rated them as equal)
  • The focus is as much on fun as on quality soccer, with a beer exchange and food truck at the fields, all games taking place at the same 11-field complex, and a Friday evening welcome party
  • The Co-Ed division will have both Competitive and Recreational brackets so you will be playing against appropriate competition
  • Each team is guaranteed four 60-minute games over Saturday and Sunday, so there is no need to book Monday departures in hopes of making it to final rounds
  • Boulder, Colorado is a fantastic vacation destination located only 45 minutes from Denver International Airport; you can lengthen your stay to spend time in the Rocky Mountains

Registration opens January 2, 2020 and is first come, first served. Get on our email list for updates of the tournament.

Fields

The Pleasant View Fields Sports Complex is the primary outdoor soccer facility for the city of Boulder, Colorado. The fields are truly outstanding.

If you have ever played in a tournament where you were assigned a dirt, rocky, or undersized field, you know it can ruin the fun. 86% of 2019 participants rated the fields as better than those they have played at other tournaments and another 11% rated them as equal.

The facility contains eleven grass fields used from March through October, sparing the fields the tough winter conditions in Colorado.  Plus, they mostly sit unused for the month prior to the tournament.

The complex was awarded the 2015 National Sports Turf Managers Association sporting grounds field of the year and the Championship Field (field #1) was awarded the 2015 Colorado Sports Turf Managers Association – Rocky Mountain “Sports Field of the Year”.

There is not a bad field to be drawn.

Fun

The Rocky Mountain Adult Soccer Tournament is as much about having fun as it is about playing quality soccer. Here are a few aspects we add to the weekend:

  • All teams play at the same 11-field complex, increasing the sense of community at the tournament and allowing you to easily watch other games.
  • We will have a pre-tournament party at Gravity Brewing in Louisville from 6:00 – 8:00 PM on Friday evening, allowing teams to get together and meet other players.
  • On Saturday we will have a food truck at the fields.
  • Unofficially, we have heard there will be a Beer Share event on Saturday after the final games in which teams are encouraged to bring and share canned beer from their home town.

The tournament location itself is a major attraction. Boulder, Colorado is consistently voted one of the nicest, most livable small cities in the United States. The city of 100,000 people is known for housing the state’s flagship university (University of Colorado at Boulder), having a vibrant high-tech based economy, and being home to the downtown Pearl Street Mall, full of shops, restaurants, and nightlife. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder draws all sorts of visitors and residents interested in the outdoors.

Hotels

We negotiated deals with four local hotels out of the many from which you can choose in Boulder. We highly recommend you consider staying in Boulder overnight, even if you are coming from as close as Denver or Fort Collins. It makes the tournament weekend much more fun! Our four hotels are as follows.

The Millennium Harvest House Hotel is nicely located on Boulder Creek with a beautiful back lawn. It is only a mile from Pearl Street Mall in central Boulder. The rooms are hit and miss as not all have been recently updated but our $139 price is excellent for Boulder in the summer. Call (800) 545-6285, option 1 and use the group name RMASTA or use the online link to reserve your room. Deadline is June 24.

The Holiday Inn Express is in North Boulder, one of the hipper neighborhoods of the city with good restaurants and bars (plus a brewery and winery) within walking distance. It is also only five minutes from the fields and you can take a fast Uber to central Boulder. Our negotiated rate is $159, which includes breakfast, and you can reserve this online or by calling 303-442-6600 and using the code RMS. Deadline is June 25.

The Hyatt Place Boulder is nicely positioned only six minutes from Pleasant View and at the far east end of Pearl Street in central Boulder. The hotel is new and in a nicely located area of town. Use code G-RMAS and make sure to select your preferred dates. Deadline is July 3.

Hampton Inn & Suites North is also only five minutes from the fields but north, in the direction of Longmont and away from Boulder.  Breakfast is included, the rooms are good, and there is an indoor pool, all of which helped to make this the #3 hotel in Boulder on TripAdvisor.  Our rate is $189 and you can reserve this online or by calling (303) 530-3300 and using the group code RMS. Deadline is July 3.
