The League is structured to provide participating teams/clubs with the appropriate level of competition, while maintaining a challenging environment for individual and team development.

Highlights of the program will include

  • A traditional 8-9 game season is played by U9-U14/15 age groups in the fall and U9-U18/19 age groups in the spring.
  • Roster flexibility-Any and all players who are US Club carded, may play on ANY team within that club provided they are age appropriate

Our Values

The primary focus of a successful soccer program will be the individual player and their families.

  • We believe a primary focus of soccer coaches, teams and clubs will be the development of children as people first and players second.
  • We believe individual player development will be a clubs primary focus and team success a secondary but important goal.
  • We believe the players, parents, coaches and clubs who are the exception to the previously mentioned principles will benefit from involvement in a league, which promotes and expects this behavior from its participants.
  • We believe the CSSL offers a league supporting the players, parents, coaches and clubs in this endeavor.

Simple administration

  • We believe a league should be governed by simple administrative procedures which provide players, teams and clubs flexibility in the player development process.
  • We believe clubs should have the ability to move players up and down within their club using a club player pass.
  • We believe clubs should have the ability to make changes game to game due to illness, injury, vacation, changing ability, practice attendance, commitment or because a player has dedicated his/her summer to practicing on their own.
  • We believe having a flexible roster is not only healthy for players, teams, clubs and families but also reflects a realistic understanding of the changes occurring in players, families, teams and clubs over a 12 month period


  • We believe soccer is a kick in the grass, a blast, loads of fun, the cats meow, the bee's knees, and the world's favorite pastime and should be played, watched, enjoyed and read about daily.
