North Carolina FC Youth

North Carolina FC Youth, a 501c3 non-profit youth soccer organization, is the product of a collaboration between Capital Area Soccer League, Triangle Futbol Club Alliance, and North Carolina Football Club. NCFC Youth’s mission is to provide positive, high quality soccer opportunities at all levels of play for youth and their families and to serve as a valuable community partner. The youth club’s inaugural season will take place during the Fall 2017, when nearly 14,000 youth players (ages 3-18) take the fields.

Capital Area Soccer League - History

Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) was founded in 1974 as a non-profit youth soccer organization. Prior to becoming CASL, the organization operated as the Raleigh Soccer League for a few years. What began as a volunteer, parent run organization with 25 youth teams has grown into the largest, local serving youth soccer club in the state. Today, CASL is home to more than 11,000 players ages 4-18 each year. So many dedicated and passionate soccer pioneers are part of our history to make it what it is today. The visionaries who predicted the growth of soccer, the growth of our community, and the need for green space proactively secured CASL our greatest asset in the late 70s - WRAL Soccer Park. This facility is CASL's home and welcomes more than 600,000 visitors each year for practices, games, tournaments, and outside events. The past 40+ years are marked by landmark club, team, and player achievements that continue to mold and shape our history in Wake County and in the large soccer community.
