SOCA’s high school aged Elite teams have completed their 2018/2019 league play and have racked up success in all divisions, currently placing SOCA at the top of the club-wide table going into the spring season.
All eight of the SOCA U16-U19 boys and girls squads finished in the top four of their respective division. Leading the way are the U18 Boys with a first place finish and undefeated record. The U19 Boys and U16 Girls also hold the top spot in their respective divisions. The U17 & U18 Girls finished second in their group, U16 Boys & U19 Girls finished third and the U17 Boys claimed fourth place.
This remarkably consistent success in the state’s top league is testament to the comprehensive quality of SOCA’s players and coaches. SOCA’s ability to compete and succeed against clubs from much larger population centers results from thoughtful programming, a commitment to player development and continuing coach education. SOCA continues to attract quality players throughout west-central Virginia.
SOCA’s U11-U15 Elite teams will complete their CCL league play during the course of the spring season. First league matches of the spring are scheduled later in March. Final club-wide standings won’t be known until early June. The younger Elite teams will be eager to maintain the high standard set by their older club-mates.
