LEVELS

ball1

​Recreational

The Recreational level is CSSC's most basic level of play. You can think of it as the "beginners" level or "just for fun" level. Participants that play at this level are looking to first and foremost play their sport for fun. While competition may be important to them it is not necessarily the top priority. Players in this level have varying levels of experience playing the sport.

ball4

Intermediate

CSSC's Intermediate level is a step up from its Rec level with most players having a bit more experience and competition being more of a priority while fun is still important. Think of it as the "middle of the road" level. Participants playing at this level have a good knowledge of the rules and good experience but may not be quite as serious as some of CSSC's higher level players. Most participants  have played for a few seasons. It's a great level for teams that have had success at the Rec level and are now ready to step up their game.

ball3

Competitive

The Competitive level is geared for participants with good experience playing their respective sport and who enjoy the competition of the sport as much as anything. You can think of this level as CSSC's top level in most cases. Participants at this level should have their game face on and expect a high level of play. Most players at this level will have high school and even college experience playing their sport competitively.

Open

The Open level is available to all levels of play. It is "open" to everyone. It's a combination of skill levels that usually skews towards the intermediate level, depending on the sport.
