The Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to maximize available resources to provide the highest quality of soccer services and ensures that all players, staff and stakeholders have a positive climate for learning and development.
CASL is a member of the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), US Youth Soccer (USYS) and the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). As such, age groups are determined based on calendar year. CASL hosts leagues in U9-U14, U16 and U19 for both boys and girls. The fall season runs from September through October and the spring season runs from April through mid-June. In accordance with MSYSA rules, tryouts for teams can begin on the 3rd Saturday of June each year.
CASL has been in operation for approximately 30 years and has provided soccer opportunities to over 40,000 youth in that time. CASL reaches as far as Jackson, St. Johns, Grand Ledge and Fowlerville.
CASL works closely with the Greater Lansing Area Referees Association (GLASRA) to train and develop young referees.
CASL hosts the Capital Area Classic each September. Approximately 150 teams from across the midwest participate in CASL’s annual tournament. All of the proceeds from the Capital Area Classic benefit the financial aid fund and field grants fund. CASL also provides 50% reimbursement for coaching education for CASL coaches.
