RODARTE COMMUNITY CENTER PARTNERS WITH COLORADO RAPIDS AND NOBLE ENERGY
The Rodarte Community Center, part of the City of Greeley’s Culture, Parks, and Recreation Department, is partnering with Noble Energy and the Colorado Rapids to provide some community outreach events. Players will be hosting a clinic for the Rodarte Community Center’s After-School Program attendees in October; and students from Northridge High School’s soccer program will be taking a tour of the Rapids facility and enjoying a game next month as well.
The Noble Energy soccer clinic for the Rodarte Community Center’s After-School Tutoring/Fun Club will be on Monday October 7th from 4:30-5:30pm. Four players from the Colorado Rapids will be offering a half hour of drills and then a mini scrimmage with the kids and players. The clinic will focus on 50-80 kids currently enrolled in 3rd-5th grade. The Rodarte Community Center’s After-School Program is a partnership between the Youth Enrichment Program and Weld County School District 6 and includes students from local schools.
In addition, also sponsored by Noble Energy, Northridge High School’s soccer program has been invited to take part in the Colorado Rapid’s Kicks for Kids Program at the October 19th game. The school will be receiving 50 tickets to hand out to students. Northridge HS is part of the 21st Century Grant Program known as the “Summit.” Discount tickets will be available to additional athletes to attend if interested. Northridge students will be announced on the Jumbotron either before the game or at halftime. All students receiving a ‘Kicks for Kids’ ticket will also receive a voucher for concession food as well. Noble Energy is underwriting the cost of the Colorado Rapids tickets for the students and will be providing some gear for them to wear at the game.
The Rodarte Community Center is located at 920 A. Street in Greeley. For more information about the collaboration between Noble Energy and the Colorado Rapids, contact C.J. Archibeque at the Rodarte Community Center 970.350.9430.
