CFC added 6 more state champions to it's already impressive list earlier this month. Three girls teams (U12 CFC South Sky, U13 Girls North Sky, U18 CFC West) and three boys teams (CFC United 04's, CFC United 02's and CFC United 01's) were crowned champions and will advance to the next stage of the competition. Also advancing to regionals are the U14 CFC West Real as they advance as the age group wildcard. In addition to the winners, 10 teams finished as runners up the competition.
Good luck to all our girls and boys teams in the next stage of the competition!
U. S. Soccer indicates it will announce in the near future, specific details, including a number of new initiatives and recommendations concerning the modification of substitution rules and limitations on heading the ball as well as a more comprehensive player safety campaign.
As outlined below, there are two distinct branches in nearly every area that work as "brother/sister" branches. At the younger ages, each branch has its own developmental program and Premier teams from U11-U13. At the U14 age, the United program begins for both boys and girls for the most talented and committed players in the club. The United Girls have two teams per age group and compete in the ECNL and NPL, while the boys program has one team that will compete in the ECNL (starting in '17/'18) and one that will continue to compete in the NEP NPL League.
For those that do not want to make the commitment involved with the United program, CFC offers State and Regional Level teams for the U14-U18 age groups. Based locally in the branch areas, the two branches closest to each other work together to form teams that will play in the Region I League and the Connecticut State Cup. If the demand is there, each branch may field separate teams from U14-U18, but there will always be a convenient place to play for players of all ability levels.
Whether your goal is to play soccer at the highest level in college, or stay sharp for your high school season, CFC offers something for everyone.
