PROGRAM DETAILS: In 2016, we launched the CCL United program that provides top-level CCL players a one-of-a-kind youth professional soccer immersion experience versus some of the World’s very best youth academy teams. We select 17 year old players to create a Gothia Cup Premiership Boys, Championship Boys, Premiership Girls, and Championship Girls teams. We then select 15 year old players to create a Vildbjerg Cup Premiership Boys, Premiership Girls, Championship Boys, and Championship Girls teams. Along with a dedicated team training camp prior to departure, and the exceptional international friendly matches prior to Gothia Cup or the Vildbjerg Cup, the complete experience is second to none. Note: Gothia Cup allows three over-age players and a roster of 18 to participate on a team. Vildbjerg Cup allows a roster of 16 to participate on a team.
PLAYER SELECTION / CRITERIA OF SELECTION:
1) CCL Director, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff recommendations. Interested players should also connect with their club’s TD/DOC.
2) Scouting during CCL seasonal play through Fall and at the CCL December College Showcase, ID Session, and the CCL February College Showcase.
3) CCL United ID session #1, December for all recommended players.
4) Additional CCL United ID sessions may be requested by a Head Coach.
5) Identification and recommendation from opposing CCL Directors, Technical Staff and Coaching Staff throughout CCL league play.
As the destination league for the college bound soccer players, we have created the CCL College Combine. The Combine is for all eligible CCL players to participate in training sessions led by top college coaches. This Combine will also provide the CCL United Coaching Staff a final time to assess and evaluate players for any final roster spots on a CCL United team. These opportunities are only available to CCL players!
