Challenge Coaching Application 2015-2016 Season

The challenge program is one of the largest and strongest challenge programs in the state of North Carolina serving U10-U18 age groups.  CASL’s challenge program offers a higher level of competition compared to Recreation soccer, without the time and financial commitment to families that is required of the Classic soccer program.  All Challenge teams are created through a try-out process with the goal of  creating parity across all teams within a playing division. The overall goal of Challenge is to provide players with a positive environment with higher coaching standards than Recreation soccer so players can develop technically and tactically in a competitive environment that promotes growth and development.
