Colorado Rapids Partner with Playworks

  1. Updates

Playworks Denver partnered with the Colorado Rapids for their Rapids’ Recess program. 

The Rapids' Recess program brings Rapids players out to school locations for the players to speak with elementary school students about staying healthy through the integration of academics and soccer. Three Playworks schools – College View, AXL Academy and DCIS-Ford- were happy to host these soccer stars during their recess.

Thank you to Deshorn Brown, Atiba Harris, Drew Moor, Clint Irwin, Kory Kindle and Steward Ceus for teaching the children we work with the importance of staying active, having fun and doing well in school. You are welcome to play with us at recess anytime!
