CCL NextGen is a progressive, forward-thinking, regionalized league system specifically for the next generation of youth soccer players in the 9U-10U age groups. Currently, there are over 1,300 NextGen players that are improving their skills every day! CCL offers two different NextGen Models for Virginia and Maryland:
- CCL NextGen Maryland is an open league model for Maryland-based teams.
- CCL NextGen Virginia remains club-based and is open only to CCL clubs.
CCL NextGen is designed to inspire and unite top clubs to pursue youth soccer player development as it was meant to be: for the player.
Beginning Fall 2018, CCL NextGen Maryland will offer clubs and teams in Maryland a regionalized league format specifically aimed at enhancing the overall development of Maryland youth players. CCL NextGen Maryland was designed with the understanding that matches for 9U & 10U players should not be focused on results and need not include long distance travel. The league includes festival-style events (“CCL ScrimmageFests”) that are part of a local, developmentally appropriate, fall and spring season.
CCL NextGen gives the game back to the player through its “Power to the Player” methodology. This proven methodology affords youth players:
- Developmental Platform for 9U & 10U Boys and Girls
- A creative environment for play
- The joy of learning new skills
- The love of competition
- The thrill of risk-taking
- A long-term approach to success
CCL NextGen Maryland offers top clubs and teams the opportunity to travel and host matches together at one site, with the goal of helping clubs grow and build from within. Club Directors have the chance to participate in the process–with all their players and coaches at one-site on the same day–and Coaches with more than one team will have schedules deconflicted. (Note: clubs with few teams may not play at same-site or on the same day based on tier placement.)
Application is Open! CCL NextGen Maryland will begin Fall 2018, with league acceptances made by May 21st. Non-refundable league deposit due June 1st. No guaranteed entry. Clubs must have access to a minimum of one site, with appropriately sized field(s) and equipment, to play each match.
