Levels of Play

Classic:  In North Carolina, Classic is the highest level of play in travel soccer.  Classic is divided up into four divisions.  Region III Premier is the highest level of play, followed by Premier, Classic I and Classic II at the 13U and older age groups.  At 11U-12U there are two levels of play.  Open is the highest level, followed by Classic II.  At 13U in the fall season there is Open followed by Classic II.  In the spring there is Open Elite, followed by Open and then Classic II.  Travel for classic teams can range from relatively local to state wide.  GUSA Classic teams have paid professional coaches and practice 2-3 times per week depending on the level of play.

Select:  In the fall of 2014 North Carolina Youth Soccer introduced a new level of play called “Select”.  This level of play fits just below Classic II in the Classic structure.  GUSA teams playing in the Select division will have paid professional coaches and will practice 2 times per week with a third optional “Game Night” type training session throughout the year at the 11U and 14U age groups.  Travel for Select level teams will primarily be in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. 

Junior Academy :  Junior Academy is a program for 8U-10U Boys and Girls.  Junior Academy players do not have a tryout, they have evaluations.  Players wishing to join the Junior are evaluated by our staff and coaches.  Junior Academy is a yearlong program that focuses on individual skill development.  Junior Academy players train 2-3 times per week.  Travel is generally limited to the Triad area, with the exception of one tournament per season.
