CCSC Dominates CASL Showcase Tournaments

CCSC sent 6 teams (3 girls, 3 boys) to the 2015 CASL Tournaments, some of the Nation's premier College Soccer Showcases.  With over 600 college coaches in attendance at each tournament, the U17 SOL BLACK, U15 SOL BLACK, Jacksonville U15 ECNL team with 11 CCSC players, U17 RANGERS BLACK, U16 RANGERS BLACK and U14 RANGERS BLACK represented CCSC.

Luis Torres, Executive Director of Coaching (DOC) for CCSC, summarized the Club's performance: "I am very happy and encouraged by the results of all of the CCSC teams at the CASL Showcases. This is the best overall performance by our club at a high profile college showcase to date. The boys teams had a very impressive showing capped off by the U16 team winning their group.  On the girls side the results were highly impressive with the U17 Sol black team winning their group by playing some of the best soccer I've ever seen them play. The girls representing CCSC on the ECNL side were just as impressive winning their group in a very competitive bracket, but perhaps most impressive was the U15 Sol team going 3-0 to win their group. The team has been building towards that kind of success all year and it is something that they can build on into the next season. Congrats to all of our teams!"

In traveling to Cary, NC in late November/early December, CCSC teams faced elite teams from across the Country.  With a Showcase-style format, each team played 3 games within it's Group.  The team with the highest points after Group play is crowned as the winner.  The achievement of CCSC teams at such a high level tournament is impressive.  According to Matt Hollyoak, DOC & Boys Technical Director for CCSC, “ CASL is a fantastic tournament that gives our teams and players alike the opportunity to play teams from outside of our region that we do not normally see. Both the performances and results from all of our teams were impressive, they truly show all of the hard work and effort that has been put forth by players and coaches”.
