The Colorado Storm Competitive program is always looking for ways of improving its player identification and developmentally appropriate player placement. To this end, we firmly believe the body of work is a greater indication of a player's current level than any given moment. With this in mind, the Colorado Storm would like to clearly communicate its new placement procedures and expectations for the 2017-18 teams being formed this summer.

In our quest to provide the highest level of competition and exposure to college programs for our U15-U19 boys the Colorado Storm is pleased to announce its acceptance into the newly formed ECNL Boys League. This is an exciting opportunity for our highest level teams to compete Regionally and Nationally in front of hundreds of college coaches and National scouts.

2003 "8th Grade" Fall Team
Due to the USYSA mandated change to the 'birth year" team formation, this creates a Fall season void for the 2003 players who are not yet in high school. Again, this is not a Colorado Storm initiative and affects EVERY club and association in the country. 2003 8th grade players will attend the open tryout discussed above like every other player. They will be placed on a "Spring" team (ECNL, Academy, Select, etc.).

It is our hope to have at least two 8th grade teams for a better distribution of talent, but again, it is contingent on the overall available pool. The team(s) will play in
