As we approach two months without Major League Soccer (and will not be seeing any games until at least June 8th), the Colorado Rapids have launched a new initiative to help unite the club, players, coaches, staff, and fans. It’s called ONECLUB. ONECOMMUNITY. and the main website is a hub for everything the Rapids are doing during the coronavirus pandemic.
You may have already seen some of the content that they’ve created—from TV show recommendations to Master-ish classes to a circuit workout with goalkeeping coach Chris Sharpe—and Altitude has been broadcasting their Sports Social show every weekday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Rapids website and social media. The hosts regularly interview Rapids players and staff and even had MLS Commissioner Don Garber on last week.
The club has also started recognizing people who are making a difference with their Community Team of the Week. They will include as many nominees as possible each Monday and you can submit your nomination here.
If you’re in a position to volunteer, the Rapids have also put together a page highlighting different organizations that are accepting help here.
From all of us at Burgundy Wave, we hope everyone is doing well out there and that we’ll have some games to talk about soon. In the meantime, drop a line in the comments about what you’ve been up to over the past few weeks if you want to share!
