Needham Soccer Club Champions League (NSCCL) is designed for players to play recreational soccer and who are motivated to continue their development. NSCCL allows players to feel comfortable while developing and challenging themselves and their team to improve – Fun is very much a part of the program.
Our year round curriculum is age-appropriate and provides a challenging, fun, and positive environment in which players can grow.
Single gender teams of 3rd and 4th graders play on mixed grade teams in a 7v7 format. 5th and 6th graders play on mixed grade teams in 9v9 format and follow the same laws of the game as the BAYS Travel league – 7v7 (click here) & 9v9 (click here).
