2022_5-3-1 Challenge


The 5-3-1 Challenge is a unique, fast-paced soccer competition that provides wonderful tests of players’ skills and ability to handle the small group situations which are the building blocks of team play.

Teams of 6 to 8 players play a series of 40 minute matches consisting of three segments:

  • 18 minute 5v5 game
  • 10 minute 3v3 game
  • The Pit.

The Coerver 5-3-1 Challenge, over Thanksgiving Weekend, is Colorado’s most unusual soccer competition.  Based on our popular 5-3-1 summer camp activity, the Challenge brings great value; more play for much less than the indoor soccer events that weekend. And parents really like that it’s one day, not the whole weekend.

Who it is for

The Challenge is open to players in the U9 – U15 age groups. There will be separate divisions for boys and girls as each will play on separate days.

Tournament brackets will be finalized one week prior to its start.  Brackets will be constructed to ensure the most competitive atmosphere within each teams age range.
