Playing Levels

The Virginia Legacy Soccer Club will provide teams in 3 communities across the Peninsula in 2017/18. The top players in each age group across all communities will come together to make up the CCL Elite team at the U12-U19 age groups for boys and girls.  For the 2nd/3rd tier teams (Wizards and Phoenix or Titans/Gryphons) at the U11-U19 age groups - we will combine the next best players while trying to maintain a certain community "home base" based on the rosters and coaches. These teams will play in the Virginia Soccer League.  These teams will be placed in divsions appropriate for their development regardless of the team name (Ex: Titans Teams can play in Div 1/2 if needed)
