Select or "Travel"Soccer (9-19)

Ages U-9 to U-19. We have teams that participate in CCL (Club Champions League) and NCSL (National Capital Soccer League).  

- CCL (Club Champions League) is acclaimed as "The Best Regional League" in the USA, and the "Largest Club-to-Club Soccer League in the USA! They provide various levels and arenas of competition:

"Next Gen" -- for U-9 to U-10 which includes "NextGen Scrimmage Fests" (tournaments that take the focus off winning).

"CCL Regional League(s)" -- for U-11 through U-19. But this also includes a path for u-12 and up in "NLA North American National Championship" (NLA is "National League Alliance").

"CCL National League" -- also for U-11 through U-19 and with path to "NLA North American National Championship" but it is a higher level of competition, basically the pinnacle of youth soccer.

And through both the Regional and National leagues, CCL provides premier College Showcases and other top tournaments. 

- NCSL (National Capital Soccer League) remains one of the oldest, most reputable and competitive youth soccer leagues in America! To quote their website: "It offers appropriate soccer competition for boys and girls teams aged 7 through 19. With approximately 1,100 teams competing in eleven age groups, NCSL is one of the oldest, largest, and most well-known travel soccer leagues in the nation. It currently features 72 member clubs centered in Maryland, DC, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The NCSL also provides pathways to "US Youth Soccer National Championships" - via highly competitive USYS League Championships (top teams in top leagues - in this case, top 4 East Coast centered leagues)... toward US Eastern Regionals and then onto USYS National Champsionships.
