We are looking at a possible relocation to the Denver area. We currently live in a master planned community in So. California, and we are heavily involved in youth sports -- Little League, Pop Warner tackle Football, "club" basketball and/or National Junior Basketball, AYSO, girls softball. My son (almost 10) plays sports year round -- baseball, football and basketball, and my almost 7-year old daughter plays soccer and softball (non-competitive, more recreational at this point).

We are looking for a community with nice, newer homes (built after 2000), with great schools and many options for youth sports. Hoping the sports are in the community, if not - very close. We'd like an area with great schools as well. It doesn't have to be a master-planned community, but we do enjoy the amentities MP communities have -- neighborhood parks/pools, etc.

We're hoping to stay in the $450-550K range, but could go higher if we found a fantastic area and a great home.

Would really appreciate any insights!! Thanks!!

Highlands Ranch is a master planned community, both Broomfield and Castle Rock are cities.

Yes. But I'm wondering specifically about youth sports options in all areas, thank you!

Highlands Ranch and Stapleton seem to be very much the family/suburb master planned communities that people (who want that) love. They both have all of the organized sports/leagues that you want. I am a Stapleton kind of girl as it is a little more "hip", less beige/cookie cutter, closer to the city but still has fantastic master planned amenities. Check out Stapleton Denver There is something called "stapleton all sports" which has most of what you are looking for: StapletonAllSports.com - Program Schedules They also have various soccer leagues I've been hearing about through the moms group and a swim team called the stingrays.
I too am relocating from southern Cali (venice/marina) and have a 4 year old. Very much looking forward to it!! You can get an amazing home in Stapleton or HR for that price. Schools are really great in both areas.

Though the people who live in HR really seem to love it there. And yes, they most definitely have all the leagues and organized sports for kids you can imagine.

Here are some links for children's sports

Basketball: JAM and Gold Crown have competitive teams all over the city.

Gold Crown also has volleyball leagues.

The Arapahoe Youth League has football, baseball, softball, and volleyball leagues. It is close to Highlands Ranch.

There are several competitive soccer clubs in the metro area.

Great, that is just the type of info I was looking for. Between highlands Ranch and Castle Rock, which has the better schools? Do you know how many kids are in the average elementary school class?
