      Cal North Competitive Soccer LeagueCCSL-2

      The Cal North Competitive Soccer League (CCSL) is Cal North’s premier league for youth competitive soccer. For over 50 years, the CCSL has been Northern California’s top level of competition in youth soccer. The league is for all of Cal North’s affiliated clubs and includes teams from U8 to U19 age groups.

      CCSL provides two divisions of play, one “club” based and one “team based”. Each year, Cal North will provide requirements that clubs who apply to the club-based division must adhere to each year. Cal North will review and accept club-based teams each season. Individual teams can apply and enter into the “team based” division.

      There are four levels of play ranking from highest to lowest: gold, silver, bronze and copper. Normally the league is broken into two separate seasons, fall and spring, with seasons consisting of roughly 8-10 games. The league will attempt to create specific district divisions, to minimize travel. In order for the “stay local-play local” concept to be achieved, each district’s member clubs must enter teams at each age group, gender, and level so brackets can be established in a manner that provides great local competition that reduces travel time for participants.

      Cal North will be implementing CCSL Best XI teams for the 2023/2024 year. These teams will provide recognition to standout players for their performance during the season. Head coaches in the Gold Divisions will use a nomination and voting process to select players into CCSL Best XI teams. 

      CCSL Best XI teams will be presented in a 4-4-2 formation with one goalkeeper, four defenders, four midfielders and two forwards. 

      Players in the CCSL Best XI teams will have increased opportunities of exposure to college coaches. This will serve as a platform to identify the best talent in Northern California.
