First Game Moved to September 13

Good Morning CCSL Members,  for several reasons, the board has decided to move the date of the first game to September 13.  The last play date of the season will be November 01.  Coaches are in the process of contacting you and holding their first practices.  We are working on the schedule and it will be published when it is ready.  Thank you for your patience as we get the behind the scenes work done to ensure a successful start to the season.

Meeting Still On….

Folks, we are still on for tonight, despite damp fields.  If there is a shower or so, we’ll work through it.  See everyone at the fields!

Monday Meeting Reminder and Revised Schedule

Hello parents and coaches. This message is a reminder of the upcoming meeting this Monday night.  The Tuesday meeting and coaching course has been cancelled due to low participant numbers; however, coaching  education will still be offered Monday night.

The meeting is required for all CCSL coaches and is encouraged for any association members (parents) that might be interested in learning to coach or help out with the league in any way.  We will be distrubuting rosters, going over the new volunteer policy, as well as handling other season logistics.   We are excited to see everyone there!

NEW for 2014: CCSL Volunteer Policy

CCSL is excited to introduce a Volunteer Policy, NEW for the 2014 fall season!  CCSL Association members (which is YOU, the parents) shared their opinions confidently in our spring survey.  And the board is responding by implementing an incentive program for coaching and leadership positions.  We believe these incentives along with continued coaching education will improve the enjoyment and learning for our players.  The policy that follows will also be listed under the “Coaching Resources” tab. We appreciate our members’ continued support in coaching, volunteering, and doing all of the little and big things that add up to running a successful organization for our kids.


CCSL Volunteer Incentive Program

League Leaders 

Each CCSL Board member will receive free soccer registration for their children for as long as they are serving in a leadership role as defined by the CCSL Board, perform their assigned duties to the best of their ability, and maintain a good standing with the CCSL Board.

Coaching Education Program

1. New coaches will receive reimbursement for their child(ren)’s registration, provided they (1) attend the required league orientation for new coaches and (2) attend a coaching education clinic that is designed for the age group of the players the coach plans to work with.  

2. Continuing coaches can receive reimbursement for their 
child(ren)’s registration, provided they receive certification at the developmental level of their teams and meet the same league requirements of a beginning coach.  New orientation only needs to be completed once; however, subsequent trainings or continuing education may be required. Some coaching courses will be free and offered locally.  Others may require travel and registration costs, which may be supplemented or subsidized at the board’s discretion.   
3. Coaches will not receive reimbursement if they do not fulfill outlined duties, violate the CCSL conduct policy, or if the board receives complaints of the coach based on evidence. Expectations will be outlined clearly in the new coach orientation.  Coaches that do not meet the league’s requirements and / or do not correct behavioral issues with encouragement from league officials will be released from the CCSL coaching pool.
