CCL will be sending four teams to participate in the Gothia Cup:  2001 Boys, 2002 Boys, 2001 Girls and 2002 Girls.  The 2001 Girls and 2001 Boys, if accepted, will play for the coveted Tipselit Trophy.  The 2002s will play in the elite Gothia Cup 16 Division.  Unique to CCL, we will provide top-level CCL players a one-of-a-kind youth professional soccer immersion experience versus some of the World’s very best youth academy teams.  Along with a dedicated team training camp prior to departure, and the exceptional international friendly matches prior to Gothia Cup, the complete experience is second to none.  Note:  Gothia Cup allows three over-age players to participate on a team.  Thus, top 2000 players may also be selected into the 2001 team.  We reserve the right to guest play-up 2002s into the 2001s at any time during the trip.

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.  Interested players should also connect with their club’s TD/DOC.
2)  Scouting during CCL seasonal play through Fall and at the CCL December College Showcase (Updated:  ID Session #2 added).
3)  CCL United ID session #1, December 16, 2017.  CCL United ID Session #2 – Girls:  January 7 |  Boys:  January 14, 2018.
4)  Updated:  CCL United ID February 2-4, 2018 @ CCL February College Showcase
5)  Identification and recommendation from opposing CCL Directors, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff throughout CCL league play.

As the destination league for the college bound soccer players, we have created the CCL College Combine.  The Combine is for all eligible CCL players to participate in training sessions led by top college coaches.  This Combine will also provide the CCL United Coaching Staff the time to assess and evaluate players for any final roster spots on a CCL United team.  These opportunities are only available to CCL players!
