These teams will play in a combination of NCYSA Premier Division, Region 3 Premier, or National League based on the slots each club currently holds. NCFC Classic Elite teams will be playing at the highest level possible within the USYS league structure. Classic Elite teams strive to play at the highest level of youth soccer available.
