Aloha Crush Academy Ohana,
The CSL schedule has been updated to accommodate an all-academy potluck on July 29th (the last CSL day). Basically we moved the scrimmages previously scheduled on July 15th to the 29th and moved the playoff dates (previously 7/22 and 7/29) one week earlier. This way we end CSL on the last day immediately following training so everyone can enjoy the potluck at the field.
One clarification, the scrimmages are only for Division 1 and Division 2 players and they are labeled in the new schedule. D1 players should show up at 8:30 AM for their scrimmage slot and D2 players should show up at 10 AM for their scrimmage slot. D3 players have a scheduled playoff game at either 8:45 AM or 10 AM at the Mauka field so refer to the schedule for that.
Feel free to take a look at the FAQ. As other questions arise, Crush Academy will update this page accordingly.
We had to extend CSL one more game slot because we have a record number of players participating. CSL now has 12 youth teams playing across 3 divisions with 16 games being played every Saturday. Division 1 has four teams of players aged U13 and up. Division 2 has five teams of players U11 and older. Division 3 has three teams of players aged U10 and younger. We are still adding players so anyone interested should fill out the online tryout form and note their interest in CSL so they can get added.
Don't forget, all-academy technical training time slot has been moved to 11:15-12:15 PM to accommodate the additional game slot.
CSL starts on Saturday June 3rd, 2017 and continues through August. Any updated schedules will be found on the CSL page.
CSL is a flexible way to tryout for Crush Academy teams. You will be seen by multiple staff coaches and have the opportunity to get in competitive officiated games along with high level technical training in the same session. It is also an opportunity to get to know the players on the teams prior to the start of outside league play in order to build chemistry. We encourage players who are traveling, playing other sports, or have other possible conflicts to still sign up for CSL. CSL Teams carry larger rosters to accommodate these conflicts so players can attend when they are able. Whether or not players eventually get placed on Crush Academy teams, CSL is a way to stay in shape during the off-season and have a ton of fun in the process. If interested, fill out the online tryout form and Crush Academy staff will be in touch with you shortly. See you on the fields!
Congratulations to Coach David, Coach Choong and the Crush 07Bs on winning their Select Division this Winter Season.
