LEVELS

recreational

​Recreational

The recreational level is geared towards participants that are just looking to have fun. This is the most basic level that the CSSC offers, you can think of it as the "beginners" level. Participants that play at this level are out to enjoy themselves and not out for the sheer competition of the  sport. Most players have not played on an organized team before or have only played for a couple of seasons. This is a great level for beginning teams to start and a great way to begin your team's dynasty.

intermediate

Intermediate

The intermediate level is geared towards participants who are still relatively new to the sport but are seeking a little bit more competition. You can think of it as the "middle of the road" level. Participants that play at this level have a good knowledge of the rules and the game and are ready to become more competitive but are still not all that serious. Most participants at this level have played for a few seasons. This is a great level for those teams that have had success at the recreational level and are now ready to step their game up!

Upper Intermediate

The Upper Intermediate level is geared towards the participant that has been involved in the sport for a while and are definitely ready to become more competitive. You can think of this level as the "above average" level. Participants at this level can expect a high quality of competition. Most participants at this level have played the sport for quite some time and have a strong base in the fundamentals of the sport. This is a great level for teams to begin bridging the gap between regular player and professional stud!
