The CSA Coaching Structure for 2017-2018 has been announced, please click here to view.

CSA is pleased to announce the 2017-2018 coaching assignments, linked below. Some familiar faces are returning to our fantastic staff for next season along with some great additions to the coaching pool. Some teams are still listed as TBD as we are still in the hiring process with intent to complete the list prior to tryouts. Continue to check the list periodically in the coming weeks as we will update it as we confirm the remaining staff.

When observing the lists, you will see “OPEN” listed as a division at the 12U and 13U age groups. We plan to enter these teams in the Open division of the NCYSA Classic Program this fall. All “OPEN” level teams at the 12U and 13U age groups will be practicing three times per week starting in the fall. Additional teams currently listed as “Classic” may be moved to OPEN following the tryout process. This is dependent upon team selection results and the selection criteria for NCYSA.
