CLCF Developmental Soccer is run for U8, U10, U13, and U17 age groups in the fall and spring seasons. Visit the CLCF Age Matrix to find your child's division. The cost for the program is $90.00, which includes the uniform (shirt, shorts, and socks) and end-of-season celebration and award.

The Developmental Program runs weekly, with hour-long practices one night per week and games on Saturday mornings at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, or 11:30. When registering, you can enter up to two (2) nights your child cannot practice. We use that information when forming teams. 

The program is designed for players regardless of ability or experience. Players are encouraged to learn and take an interest in the game of soccer. The game of soccer encourages physical fitness and teaches valuable lessons in teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play, problem-solving, and social skills.
