At UCC, our goal is to prepare youth soccer players to take their soccer skills to the next level, including high school, college and professional level teams.
We focus on the development of our players through a high standard of training and competition. Our teams compete in regional leagues and tournaments to gain competitive experiences that enhance their skill development.
Open Fields - May 24-25, June 5-10

Competitive Team Tryouts - June 11

Structured open field sessions will be held May 24-25 and June 5-10, with times and dates noted by age group. Tryouts for 2023-24 competitive/traveling teams (U8-U15) and High School Academy teams will be held on June 11, with a make up date TBA.
Every player is evaluated based on his/her age (see age matrix chart below), ability, and skill level, and will be assigned to teams as space is available. Players are strongly encouraged to all sessions for their age group, but attendance at one open field and tryouts is required.

*According to U.S. Soccer's Player Development Initiatives, when determining the age group for a season, the year the season ends (2024) is used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger. For example, U10 should be read as 10 and younger.
