A secondary roster can be made up of previously registered players from different CYSA teams and or newly registered players. Check with your League Registrar for more information. Secondary Rosters cannot be used for CYSA tournaments.

League Details - CCSL schedules between 8 and 10 games for Spring League. CCSL Spring League will be regional with play in the Valley Region.

Brackets are formed to balance geography and competitive levels. Lower level teams (Copper and Bronze) tend to be geographically clustered (close together). Higher level teams tend to travel to find more competitive level of play.

Spring is a developmental period. The goal is to allow teams to try new players, new formations, and new opponents. There are no awards and the results are not used in fall seeding.

Summer Season

Cal North and CCSL are pleased to announce a new program, CCSL East Bay Summer League!

CCSL East Bay Summer League is offered at the request of several Cal North Clubs in the East Bay region and is designed to give teams an opportunity to play games each week during this important training and development period. Teams can use CCSL Summer League as a more affordable option to so many summer tournaments and can use the league as a qualifier for 2014/15 Cal North Cup play.

To provide maximum flexibility with an emphasis on player development, Summer League will use the same liberal roster and guest player policies as CCSL Spring League.

East Bay Summer League will be based primarily within District 3 and 4. Teams from surrounding districts in relatively close proximity may apply; acceptance will be based on travel distances.

Team RostersCal North registered teams may participate with their Current Seasonal Year rosters (same as last fall) or with "Paper" or "Secondary" Rosters. A secondary roster can be made up of previously registered players from different Cal North teams and or newly registered players. Secondary Rosters cannot be used for Cal North tournaments. Please check with your league registrar for more information on secondary rosters. Teams will also be allowed guest players for spring league games. Guest players must be registered with the same Cal North District as the participating team.
