CCSL is Here! ⚽⚽⚽
As we are all excited for games to kick off this weekend we wanted to make sure everyone has the necessary resources and opportunities offered this season. We look forward to another exciting season and cannot wait to hear and see players back in action this year!
Best XI 🏆
Cal North will recognize Best XI players at the conclusion of each season for the top tier divisions.
The Best XI players will be compiled based on the input of coaches following each league game, as coaches will select the top performers from their opponent. Coaches will submit their Best XI selections directly into GotSport in the same area in which they submit game scores and information. At the conclusion of each week, we will announce nominations from the past weekend.
This guide contains the steps on voting for Best XI. This should be done by the team coach after each game. Access to the team as coach is required.
"GOAL/SAVE of the WEEK" 🎥
GET FEATURED ON CAL NORTH'S SOCIALS
This year we are offering a chance to send footage during the CCSL Games of "Goals of the Week" and "Saves of the Week." We would like for all submissions to be submitted with the form below NO LATER THAN TUESDAY following the weekend's match. Cal North's Marketing team will post footage to our Instagram for voting on Thursday morning for 24 hours. After voting, the Goal/Save with the highest votes will be posted on Friday. We look forward to seeing all you all-stars in action!

Seeking Cal North Support 📩
It is extremely important that we do not wait until the last minute to seek guidance from the State Office at Cal North. Asking for help at 4:45PM on a Friday is going to create chaos as our hours of operation are Mon-Fri 8:00AM - 5:00PM. If there is anything urgent you need to get done ahead of a match week, it is strongly suggested to make a request to your Member Services representative before it is too late. We are happy to help, but some things take time and can't be solved immediately right before the office closes on a Friday. We appreciate you understanding and contacting us well ahead of the weekend in order to work with you to answer your questions.
We hope everyone enjoys their first weekend of CCSL and kicks the season off with a great start! ⚽
