Select Program

Open to registered rec players, boys and girls 3rd - 8th grade. Players continue to participate in their rec league team games every Saturday throughout the season. 

The Select Program is designed for players within the CLSF Rec League that aren't ready to make the full transition to competitive (Force) soccer, but are looking for more soccer opportunities on top of their Recreation team commitments. 

If your player is seeking extra soccer training, along the opportunity to play in a competitive tournament with other like minded players, then the CLSF Select Program would be a great supplemental program for you to consider in addition to the CLSF Rec League.
