We are excited to enter into a collaboration with North Carolina Football Club (NCFC) and Triangle Futbol Club Alliance (TFCA) to combine our resources and expertise. 

“North Carolina FC, CASL, and TFCA share a similar vision for the future of youth soccer in North Carolina and our country,” said Gary Buete, CASL CEO. “We have been committed to providing the best youth soccer opportunities the past 43 years, and this collaboration enhances our opportunities to continue being on the cutting edge of youth development. We owe a huge credit to CASL’s founders, predecessors, and former players whose commitment, success, and good decisions put us in a position to take this next step.” 

This collaboration ensures our commitment to offer local players and families the best youth soccer experience and player development opportunities. 

As part of the collaboration, CASL and TFCA will rebrand as North Carolina Football Club Youth (North Carolina FC Youth). While our name and appearance may change, our operations will stay the same:

  • Current CASL CEO, Gary Buete, will be North Carolina FC Youth CEO.
  • North Carolina FC Youth will operate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by our Board of Directors.
  • CASL staff, coaches, and leadership team will stay intact.
  • We will continue to use and operate WRAL Soccer Park, our home facility, in addition to the many other fields our teams use.
  • Your schedule, practices, and games will go on as scheduled this spring.
  • All CASL teams will play under the name “CASL” for the spring 2017 season.

Once we start the transition to North Carolina FC Youth this spring and summer, you will notice developments and enhancements to our operation. Through the collaboration, we will: 

  • Continue to serve players and families in Wake County and expand our services to Durham & Orange Counties 
  • Have access to and scheduling control of more fields & facilities. 
  • Keep and attract talented coaches and players to our club.
  • Have a clear pathway from youth to the men’s (North Carolina FC) and women’s (NC Courage) professional teams.
  • Provide more training and development opportunities.
  • Create a strong connection between the youth soccer community and the men’s and women’s professional teams.
  • Change our name and club branding to match the North Carolina FC brand (e.g., uniforms, website, social media, signage, etc.).

Open House

We invite you to attend a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, March 15 from 5:00-8:00pm to talk with CASL CEO Gary Buete, hear from our staff, ask questions, and provide feedback. The meeting will be upstairs of the Clubhouse building at WRAL Soccer Park. 

Team Formation

The intent is to combine the total number of teams between CASL and TFCA in 2016-2017 to form North Carolina FC Youth teams for 2017-2018.
