Try-out /Assessments Notes:

-Parents/Guardians and spectators are required to stay away from the tryout areas. Your child will be playing and showcasing their skills to coaches, and also playing with their friends. Despite what you might think, it is never helpful for a parent to be pacing the sidelines or shouting instructions while a child is playing soccer.

-If your child is offered a spot on a competitive / acadademy roster, you must be prepared to accept or decline at that point.  A “maybe” answer is equivalent to a “no”. Upon accepting a spot on the team within 24-48 hours you will receive an acceptance email from Blue Sombrero where you can confirm your acceptance and pay the initial team deposit. 



Explanation of Age Brackets, Birth Year, Roster Size, etc. (What does U# mean?)

The US Soccer Federation mandated a change to the age brackets starting with the Fall 2016 season, basing them on calendar year birthdates, not school year. The change was driven by the US National Team and international age standards. NCYSA Classic teams, Triangle Premier League Classic and Challenge teams and NCYSA Academy teams all follow the new age bracket structure.

Note that a player cannot play “down” an age bracket, but can play “up.”  Soccer clubs can combine age brackets to form strong roster sizes. Players may also be moved up based on their technical ability.  Though parents can request their player “play up,” all decisions for players to play up are made by Chatham Soccer League’s Director of Coaching, Martin Slavin.

The brackets for the 2018-2019 season are below.

More About the Challenge Level Program

The Challenge  Level Program is a competitive level of play, because tryouts are conducted to form teams. Challenge teams travel throughout the Triangle to neighbor clubs, and play home games in Chatham County. Travel is usually limited to a smaller radius than the Classic level. The Challenge Program allows for players developing beyond the Recreation Level to play at a more competitive level with modified travel time to and from games. The Challenge Program is available for U11s to U18s. All Challenge Teams must be a member of a currently registered association that is in good standing with the NCYSA such as Chatham Soccer League.

Chatham Soccer League plays in the Triangle Premier League, of which Chatham Soccer League is a member. Practices take place twice a week on fields in Chatham County while all games are on Saturdays and Sundays.

Classic Soccer

Classic soccer is the highest level of soccer within North Carolina.  NCYSA league has different levels and divisions of play.  Classic soccer begins at u11 and goes all the way through u19. 

Classic is a program for those players aged 11-18 who want a more rigorous schedule and game schedule than challenge soccer.

Classic soccer involves a bigger commitment from both player and parents as CSL teams play other leagues in the area.  Travel teams also attend one or tournament during the season.
