Many of the CCFC teams were Finalists this year demonstrating the strength of the program.
Competitive soccer runs year round with tryouts being held mid-May. However, CCFC does not only manage competitive teams. Spring recreation soccer runs April thru May and is also managed by CCFC. Many of our competitive players and coaches got their start in Spring Rec! Spring Recreation soccer is a volunteer based program that only works thru the dedication of our volunteer board and parent coaches. Teams range in age from U4 to U16 and are open to all skill levels. Registration online at ccfcsoccer.com.
