Trainings and Games

All Challenge teams will play home games in the region in which they are assigned: Raleigh, Cary, Wake Forest, Garner, Holly Springs, or Durham/Chapel Hill.

'09 (U9) - '04 (U14) teams

Teams train twice a week for 60-90 minutes (at the coaches discretion), generally younger teams will not train for the full 90 minutes due to the age of the player. Each team will play 8 games against teams in the NCFC Scheduling League. Games may be Friday evenings or anytime Saturday or Sunday.

'03 (U15) - '99 (U19) teams

Teams train 1 time a week for 90 minutes, and may request a 2nd weekly practice if they desire. Typically teams have 8 NCFC Scheduling League games and play Sunday afternoons to minimize conflicts with school activities. There may be an occasional game scheduled for Friday or Saturday though. Teams are only allowed to play one season of NCFC soccer due to high school seasons. Girls play Challenge in the Fall and boys play in the Spring.


Coaches

All Challenge coaches are volunteers and pass a risk management/background check conducted by North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA). All coaches are expected to be in the process of attaining a coaching education license through either NCFC Youth, NCYSA, or NSCAA. We provide multiple coaching education opportunities throughout the year and give our coaches various resources to help them be successful.
