A new youth soccer experience is coming to the Southeast! Through a collaborative effort among 8 clubs, the newly formed Southeastern Clubs Champions League (SCCL) will begin its inaugural season in the Fall of 2018. The Southeastern Clubs Champions League has been formed in response to an overwhelming need for a more manageable environment than is presently available in the gap between localized grassroots soccer and national level play. The SCCL will strive to provide a solution to this need in an affordable, family-friendly way. The SCCL will compete as one of the newest US Club Soccer Leagues in the country. US Club’s Mission to “foster the growth and development of soccer clubs throughout the United States to create the best possible development environment for players of all ages in every club” perfectly aligns with the purpose and mission of the SCCL, and we are proud to partner with them on this new endeavor!
The following 8 clubs from throughout the Southeast will be participating in the inaugural season of the Champions League: Birmingham United SA (Alabama), Carolina Elite Soccer Academy (SC), Concorde Fire (GA), Gwinnett Soccer Academy (GA), NASA TopHat (GA), Southern Soccer Academy (GA), United Futbol Academy (GA), and Vestavia Hills SC (Alabama). The new club-centric league will initially be comprised of one team per gender per age group from 12U- 19U in the 2018-19 year. Following a home and away round-robin season format, teams will compete for the opportunity to advance to the U.S. Club Soccer National Cup which includes a Regional event followed by National Finals.
The SCCL leadership has over 100 years of combined experience in managing clubs, leagues, and youth player development, so we are excited for what the future holds! For more information, please contact any of the member clubs. Tryouts will coincide with each club’s typical tryout timeline for all other programs, so look to the nearest SCCL club for more detailed information.
