Upcoming Fall 2017 Programs

For the past 20 years CASA has provided the kids in the community a place to start their soccer careers and enjoy the experience of being part of a team while learning many life lessons.  In an effort to keep up with the changes within the game, as well as Player/Coach Development, we want to share some of the programs we have for the Fall.

 

These programs are designed for our Recreational players and those who may want to take their game to the next level.  Close to 75% of our entire Elite/Travel players have started their careers in our Recreational Program.  Could your child be the next player to join the ranks?
