Invitation to join the SoCal Premier

July 2012

Greetings,

This email is to announce the start of the Adult SoCal Premier League Women’s Division

 

About SCP:  The SoCal Premier League, formally known as, the Coast Soccer League started in 1975 (there is no relation with the youth CSL, we are a separate league).  Typically fielding anywhere between 10-20 Men’s teams in 1-2 divisions in and around Orange County, CA.  Over the past 5 years the league has seen tremendous growth both in the level of play and in the number of teams.  The 2011-12 season featured close to 40 Men’s teams playing in 4 divisions.  3 divisions are tied together in a promotion/relegation format.  The 4th division is a Men’s Over35 division.  Teams from the SCP Men’s divisions typically win state, regional and national tournaments with 2 of our teams finishing as finalists in the US Amateur National Championship and the USASA Open Amateur National Championship.  There are now SCP teams in OC, LA and Riverside Counties.  Many teams in our league are also affiliated with youth clubs.

 

Women’s History in the SCP:  In the late 80’s and into the mid 90’s the SCP did feature a top level women’s league.  There was a 2 division Women’s league in the early to mid 1990’s.  Unfortunately, the women’s league dissolved in the late 1990’s.  With the growth of women’s soccer over the past 10 years we feel it is a great time to open up a Women’s division at this time.

 

Why join the SCP:  The Adult SCP is known to be the top Amateur league in California, arguably in the US.  We are a non-profit organization fully run by a volunteer Board of Directors.  We are sanctioned by Calsouth and all players and teams enjoy all the benefits provided by Calsouth as a sanctioned league including play in local, regional and national tournaments sanctioned by Calsouth, USASA and USSF.  CalSouth is the official State Soccer Association for Southern California (largest in the country?) with over 13,000 registered adult players and over 110,000 registered youth players.  The SCP takes pride in fielding teams who simply love the game of soccer and want to enjoy a full season of competitive play on great fields around Southern California.  There are not any top level women’s amateur leagues sanctioned by Calsouth and we hope to simply create the same standard with our Women’s Divisions as we have with our Men’s Divisions.

 

Who should join the SCP:  We encourage youth clubs to start their own women’s teams.  We encourage teams that already compete in the WPSL or W-League to join as this will not conflict with your season.  If you are a top team already competing in another local league you should consider joining to become a member of a Calsouth sanctioned league.  New teams are encouraged to form to start a new tradition and legacy in the world of Women’s Amateur soccer.
