Classic Soccer                                                                                    

Classic soccer is the highest level of play offered by NCYSA. Classic soccer teams under 15 years of age play both a Fall and Spring season. If selected to a Classic team, the player is expected to play both seasons. Players 15 years and older usually play one season per year: Girls play in the Fall and boys play in the Spring, opposite to their school playing seasons. Each season lasts around 11 weeks with most games scheduled on the weekends. Teams play between 7-11 games per season, meaning there are usually that many “game” weekends. A team may also choose to attend any number of tournaments during its season, both in and/or out of the state of North Carolina.

Players are required to attend a minimum of two 90-minute team training sessions a week and are encouraged to attend any additional weekly skills sessions if offered. Players are expected to attend a team camp prior to the opening of their season, as well as any winter and/or summer training opportunities as well. Failure to attend team practices can result in loss of playing time. There is no guaranteed amount of playing time at the Classic level. Classic soccer is the most competitive level of soccer offered by HCSA.
