2022-2023 Season Updates

The Southeastern Clubs Champions League (SCCL) is pleased to announce its plans for continued programming for the 2022-23 year.  The SCCL was initially formed in 2018 to fill a void in the youth soccer landscape.  Since its inception, the league has maintained its mission to continue to offer relevant, necessary programming for clubs in Metro Atlanta and its surrounding region.  We are excited to offer the following updates to all SCCL member clubs:

1.  The 12U-19U club-based division has been the pinnacle of the SCCL since the beginning.  Beginning in the Fall of 2022, the 13U-19U club-based flights will feature promotion relegation extending the competitive atmosphere from “Premier 1” to “Champions League.”

Clubs with teams currently competing in the “club-based” division will retain their position in the newly named “Champions League,” and going forward the promotion/relegation criteria will be applied seasonally as it has been in the Premier divisions (click here for the promotion/relegation criteria).  Should a club feel that their current “club-based” team would be better suited in a Premier division, the club can request to be moved into a lower division.

2022-23 Hierarchy of Divisions

  1. Champions League
  2. Premier 1
  3. Premier 2
  4. Premier 3
  5. Premier 4
  6. Premier 5

    2.  With the change to the club-based model at the 13U-19U age groups, the 12U division will now allow for more SCCL Member clubs to participate at the 12U age group.  The only criteria for participation will be:

    1. The teams must be from an existing SCCL member club
    2. A club must enter two teams for each gender it would like to participate in.  For example, if Club A would like to participate in the Girls 12U division, they will be required to declare two teams (with a 26 player max roster for each team):  One in the top flight, and one in the second flight.
    3. Clubs do not have to enter the 12U division in BOTH genders if it does not fit their club’s needs.

      3.  Upcoming Dates for the 2022-23 Year:

      • February 1st - Spring League Declarations Due for U15 age group
      • March 4th - Spring Start Date (Matches begin)
      • March 31st - Summer League Declarations Due

      • May 30th - First date for tryouts for players born in 2009-2005

      4.  Fees for the 2022-23 year will be a flat per team fee (as usual) and will be the set at the following regardless of division/level:

      • 14U and younger - $500/team
      • 15U and older - $400/team
        We will continue to update our website with information regarding the 2022-23 season over the coming weeks, but we wanted all member clubs to have this information as they finalize their plans for the next competitive year.  As always, thank you for your participation in the Southeastern Clubs Champions League!
