GOTHIA CUP or Tipselit Trophy: Team Camp: July 8-10, 2017; Gothia Cup Trip: July 12-22, 2017
Selections: CCL United 2017 Rosters

CCL will be sending four teams to participate in the Gothia Cup: 2000 Boys, 2001 Boys, 2000 Girls and 2001 Girls. The 2000 Girls and 2000 Boys, if accepted, will play for the coveted Tipselit Trophy. The 2001s will play in the highly competitive elite Gothia Cup 16 Division. After an extremely successful 2016 campaign, the CCL Board of Directors believes that more top-level CCL players need to experience this event versus some of the World’s very best professional youth academy teams. Along with a special team training camp prior to departure, and the exceptional international friendly matches prior to Gothia Cup, the overall experience is second to none. Please note: Gothia Cup allows three over-age players to participate on a particular team. Thus, top 1999 players may also be selected into the 2000 team.
There will be a few key means of identification for participation and selection into the program:
1) CCL Director, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff recommendations.
2) Scouting at the CCL December College Showcase.
3) Scouting at the CCL College Combine (not mandatory to attend).
4) Identification from opposing CCL Directors, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff during CCL league play.
Also, in an effort to provide all eligible and interested CCL players (2001 and 2000 birth-years) the opportunity to make one of the four teams, we have created the CCL College Combine that will provide a unique opportunity for CCL players to participate in training sessions led by top college coaches while also providing an opportunity for CCL United Coaching Staff the time to assess and evaluate players for selection into the CCL United program. Again, this is only a benefit to CCL players!
