The top 2 teams in the U13-U19 Boys and Girls age groups will be called "Classic Elite" teams. The teams will be tiered with the top team named "NCFC Classic Elite" and the second team called "NCFC Classic Premier". 

Our intent is to have 2 Classic Elite teams at each U13-U19 Boys and Girls age group, however, the staff reserves the right to add or reduce the number of teams based on talent.
