UPDATED CCL Information

On March 23 the VCCL announced its dissolution, and the new CCL (Club Champions League) debuts in Fall 2013 to give 15 top soccer clubs a superior soccer experience.

In response to several questions we have received, we wanted to provide further clarification on what is going on with the VCCL and CCL league announcements recently posted on several Club websites.  On March 23rd, a majority of the voting member clubs of the VCCL voted to dissolve the league after the Spring 2013 season.  While this is a significant change, we want to clarify that the Spring 2013 season for VCCL will continue as currently scheduled.  After the spring tryout process is complete in late June, our Red teams will join the CCL for play beginning with the Fall 2013 season.

Once the dissolution of the VCCL was complete, a new league called the Club Champions League (CCL) was formed. A copy of the press release, which features a comment from ASA’s Director of Coaching can be found at:

Arlington Soccer Association is one of the fifteen founding member clubs.  The full list of clubs that comprise the CCL are as follows:

Annandale
Arlington
Beach FC
BRYC
DC Stoddert
FASA
FC Frederick
FC Richmond
Freestate
Loudoun Soccer
PWSI
Roanoke Star
SOCA
SYA
Virginia Legacy

The CCL is similar to the VCCL in that member clubs have to commit to placing their top competitive teams into the league. As a result of this requirement and their commitment to the US Development Academy model, VA Rush, Richmond Kickers, Richmond Strikers, and the Bethesda Soccer Club are not joining the CCL.

ASA is excited about the opportunity to be a founding member of this new league and is committed to helping foster a league that will provide a highly competitive and developmentally appropriate environment for our players

As more details become available, please look for additional emails from ASA staff and the Travel Committee.

In the interim, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
