The Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) is the Lansing area's travel recreation league. Registration for Grand Ledge CASL teams is through the Grand Ledge Soccer Club. The Club provides coaches, equipment and training and game facilities for each team. Tryouts are held in June each year. Registration and tryout dates are announced on our Facebook page in May. A single tryout places a player on a team in both the fall and spring seasons, but players who want to play only one season will be accommodated.
It is the goal of the GL Soccer Club not to cut any player who wants to play CASL soccer; however, CASL has limits on the number of players who can be rostered on each team. It is sometimes unavoidable that players are cut.
CASL teams are coached by volunteers, but referees are paid. Matches throughout the league are played on school and city-owned fields. Travel is generally limited to the greater Lansing area. Typically, teams practice twice a week and have one or two matches on the weekend. Fall practices usually start in September and games end the first week of November. Spring practices usually start in late March and games end by mid-June. A typical season has eight games, but some teams will choose to play in additional tournaments. Tournament decisions are the prerogative of each coach. CASL registration costs approximately $100/season for each player which includes the cost of practices, games and administration, only. Player uniform items, travel expenses and any tournaments the team chooses to play in will cost extra.
If you would like to volunteer as a coach, please email the club.
