Classic soccer is the highest level of play for youth soccer within the State of North Carolina and is offered beginning at the U11 age bracket. In order to be placed on a classic team, players must attend an annual open tryout regardless of whether or not they played on a classic team the previous year. Supplementary tryouts may be held on a case by case basis depending on team needs.
Classic teams expect a greater level of commitment from its players when compared to recreation. Teams practice 2-3 times a week and typically play games on Saturdays and Sundays. Additionally, teams will participate in two tournaments per season. Away games may include a greater amount of travel as CASA classic teams will play against clubs from Eastern and Central North Carolina, potentially as far away as Raleigh or Fayetteville.
