Eclipse was officially invited to join CYSA-N and become a part of their Cal North family! CYSA-N (better known as Cal North) is a branch of the United States Youth Soccer Association and is home to hundreds of youth soccer clubs in Northern California.
Many Eclipse teams will begin competing in Cal North leagues starting in the fall of 2018. With age-pure leagues at all ages and various levels of competition (Copper up to Premier), we are encouraged by the fact that our teams will find more competitively-balanced competition. The more developed league structure that Cal North offers will help us provide our teams with more consistent game schedules in fall league play. Our more competitive Eclipse teams will benefit from new options to play at higher competitive level events, including State Cup competitions.
As Eclipse has continued to grow and evolve over the past seven years, we have been constantly monitoring different ways to provide our players and club families with the best experience possible. Our club philosophy and the positive environment created are things we want to ensure always remain the same. As we set forth on this new adventure into Cal North, we look forward to maintaining the same philosophy and environment that have always made Eclipse great, while also having our players and teams benefit from all that Cal North has to offer us. We are looking forward to how this move will benefit our players in the short-term and far into the future!
