WELCOME to the fall 2012 season. We are very excited about the quality and quantity of teams playing CCSL. You are receiving this email because you are listed as the contact for a District I team registered for CCSL for fall 2012 on the Gotsoccer website, or a District I Director of Coaching, Administrator or Club President.
We've had some changes in CCSL that we hope will lead to a better system of communication for teams, but know change creates its own challenges. We have made significant improvements to the Premier format, which has slowed the s eeding of the brackets below Premier, and for that we apologize, but we believe the newly formatted Premier and Open Premier brackets will provide a superb level of competition for these elite teams.
Preliminary brackets are posted here:
Coast and Bay:
BU10, BU12, BU13, G U9, GU14, GU16 and GU17 are not yet final but should be in the next 24 hours.
CCSL seeding and scheduling procedures are available here http://www.calnorth.org/ccsl/rules/.
Please read this information as it explains promotion and relegation and the challenge process. The other documents are playing rules and by-laws.
Phase One: Comment Period
The comment period gives teams an opportunity to provide feedback to the Age Group Coordinator (AGC) who seeded the bracket. The brackets will change due to feedback so you should check them frequently.
Please rovide concise and correct information with links to appropriate results. Let the AGC know the reason for the requested change (new players, loss of players, etc). Please don't wait until the last moment to provide feedback.
Deadline: 9pm, Saturday, July 21, 2012
