CCSL Offers Exciting Opportunities for all Cal North Premier and Coast U8 Teams

June 6, 2012 Pleasanton, CA -The California Youth Soccer Association - Cal North, the largest state soccer association in the country, is excited to announce the new CCSL Open Premier Division of their CCSL competitive playing league. This newly created division is scheduled for early fall (mid-August) to allow the ALL elite teams from Northern California a local forum to compete against other elite teams. Regardless of which elite playing league a team currently competes in, the new open division's goal is to eliminate scheduling conflicts.

Cal North CCSL Director Bruce Sillars encourages all premier level coaches to take advantage of this resource provided by Cal North. "With the development of new playing opportunities in Northern California, elite teams now have several choices for a primary fall season. Cal North and CCSL are excited to announce the formation of an early fall Premier season that will get the top U14 through U19 teams in Northern California playing together again regardless of their primary fall season choices. The League will provide for top quality local competition and an opportunity to qualify for Cal North State Cup and the USYS National Championship Series."

 "We are excited to provide this forum allowing local elite-level teams to compete against similar local teams regardless of their fall playing league commitment. We see this opportunity expanding to provide these truly gifted athletes the chance to showcase their talents in front of college coaches and national level scouts," says Cal North Vice Chairman Rich Pinnell.

The CCSL Open Premier Division will offer a 4-6 game season running mid-August thru Mid-September with the Open Premier Division, teams with other fall league commitments, playing cross bracket games with the Cal North CCSL U14 - U19 Premier Division teams. Cal North Teams participating in the full CCSL Premier Division will complete their season mid-September thru early November. For information regarding league fees, application procedures please visit calnorth.org/ccsl

CCSL Coast, responding to requests from clubs and coaches, will offer age-pure U8 brackets this fall.  Teams should enter Gotsoccer as a current U7 team which will automatically place them as a U8 application for fall 2012.  CCSL Coast will host a conference call with the U8 teams in July to determine if the U8 teams want any rules changes, including number of players, game time, field size, ball size, etc.  CCSL Coast will accommodate what the majority of the teams request.

CCSL fall playing league registration closes Friday, June 15, 2012.
