CAYA Update

Happy Friday!

A couple of CAYA updates as we get closer to the start of pre-season camp.

  • If you have not turned in your player's medical waiver and copy of birth certificate to your coach or manager, please do so immediately.  We need all waivers and birth certificates no later than July 17th to complete all player registration processing.  If those documents are not received by the CASL office from your manager or coach, it is possible your player will not be allowed to train when we begin on August 3rd.  Players need to be registered prior to the start of training.
  • We are finalizing times for the pre-season camp starting in August.  The dates and locations are set for August 3rd @ NetSports, August 9th @ NetSports, August 10th @ NetSports, August 16th @ Green Hope ES, and August 17th @ Green Hope ES.  We should have the times finalized by July 19th.
  • If you are interested in CASL's annual 3v3 event, please visit here for more information about the event and registration.  This is a great kickoff event to start the fall season and way to get together with your friends and teammates to play some soccer.
  • Just a reminder that the World Cup final match between Argentina and Germany is Sunday, July 13th at 3:00pm.  This will be must see TV!  For those of you true soccer junkies, the 3rd and 4th place game will be played on Saturday between Brazil and Netherlands.

  • ​Parents must complete the appropriate medical waiver form for your team either the US Club Waiver form or the NCYSA waiver form.  Links to these medical waivers can be found under the CAYA Documents section of the blog.  Your coach (or manager) should know which waiver needs to be completed for your team.  If you have any questions and are not sure which form you should complete, please contact your coach or regional director.
  • CAYA players will be wearing a new training shirt this year which will require each player to purchase new training shirts.  The order form for training shirts will be posted under the CAYA Documents section this week.  All training shirt orders must go to your team manager with payment.  The team manager will collect all player orders and payment.  Once all orders have been collected, the team manager will take the team's order and one consolidated payment to the CASL office for fulfillment.
  • CAYA team training will be Mondays and Thursdays.  All North teams will train at WRAL on both days.  All South teams will train at Green Hope ES on Mondays and Thomas Brooks Park on Thursdays.  All U9s will train from 5:00pm-6:30pm and all U10s will train from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
  • During the weeks of pre-season camp, CAYA teams will only train on Thursdays (August 7th and August 14th). Beginning Monday, August 18th, teams will begin training twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
  • The first games for the CAYA season will begin the weekend of September 6th and 7th.
  • CAYA teams participating in the North Carolina Champions League (NCCL) will play on Sunday afternoons with possible game start times of 1:00pm, 2:30pm, 4:00pm, and 5:30pm.  U10 CAYA teams participating in the Academy program will play on Saturdays.  Your coach will know which league your team will be participating in.
