March 17, 2010 - The CYSA Board of Directors announce the formation of the CYSA-CAL Soccer League (CCSL). This new state wide playing league will provide Division 1 and Division 3 teams the ability to seek higher levels of competition. This will result in improved player and team development. The league is open to all Division 1 and Division 3 soccer teams aged U9 – U19. CYSA wants to provide an environment for all levels and accommodate teams as best as we can. We realize it is important to place teams within a competitive league and this is vitally important to the integrity of the league. CYSA will offer a fall, spring and winter league to accommodate the needs of Northern California.
Depending upon their standings in the past year, Division 1 teams should apply for the State Premier, the State Gold, the Regional level, or the Gold/Silver levels of the District playing league division. Division 3 teams should apply for the Bronze or Copper levels of the District playing league division. Teams may choose to register in a Region or District Division that is different from their designated region or district. Once all applications have been received, the CYSA Cal Soccer League will make a determination as to the initial playing level for each team.
