CASL Teams (2nd-12th grade)

Click here to register for a Williamston Soccer youth program

Williamston Soccer CASL Teams participate in the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL).  The full program is available for our 2nd through 8th grade players to play in both the Fall and Spring seasons. We also place teams in CASL for 9th grade and up while the high school programs are not in season.

All games are played in the greater Lansing and Jackson area. We utilize a player placement system that will ensure your child is in the correct environment in order to maximize their experience.  Teams for the current school year are formed in the summer preceding.

Program Information

If your player has been playing in our youth academy and is now moving up to 2nd grade, or perhaps are just new to soccer in Williamston, you might be wondering what the differences are playing with our community teams in competitive soccer.


Let’s start with the cost. At Williamston Soccer, we strive to keep our fees as low as they possibly can be. The registration fees cover 16 games, 8 each in both the fall and spring seasons. These fees are necessary to pay registration fees per player to the league (CASL), referee fees for each game, field maintenance (paint, mowing, etc.), minimal amounts of equipment per team (balls, cones, practice jerseys, etc.). Traditionally we’e been able to keep fees consistent from year to year.


Uniforms are not included in the cost of registration. If you have a green/white jersey from a previous season that still fits, you are able to reuse it. If a new jersey is needed, you will have the option to purchase one during registration which will add $70 to the registration fee. Prior to submitting the order, Williamston Soccer will hold an event to confirm the sizing information that is entered during registration. 

  • One green and one white jersey, including player number
  • One training tee shirt, including player number
  • One pair of black shorts
  • One pair of black socks

Time / Travel Commitments 

Beyond costs, we also see questions about time and distance. This can vary. The amount of time per week will be different for each coach, but usually two training sessions a week in the 60-80 minute range is normal, on the shorter side for younger players and longer for older players.  Games are typically on the weekend, last about an hour to an hour and a half, again depending on age.  Travel is often close to the Lansing area – Okemos, Haslett, Lansing, DeWitt, Mason, Fowlerville are normal. Grand Ledge can be a bit of a hike since we’re coming from the other side of town. However, sometimes our teams are in divisions with teams from Ovid-Elsie, Eaton Rapids, Manchester, Jackson, and other communities that are considered mid-Michigan but further away.  If the distance between communities is ever further than a 45 minute drive, then CASL allows our coaches to try to find a neutral field so that neither team has to travel that far. 

There are other soccer options in the area, including club soccer, which can easily eclipse our community programs by hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars.  Our goal is to keep an option open for a competitive, fun, and developmental game without barriers or burdens.  If you are interested, we do have financial aid available.

Placement Night / Tryouts

Williamston Soccer uses an alternate method for player placement. No evaluations for new players are necessary. See Youth Program Philosophies for more details.


2nd – 12th grade players will need to submit 3 forms prior to the start of competitive play.

The proof of age and concussion forms must be done once in a player’s lifetime prior to the start of competitive play. 

The medical release form must be completed each season. Williamston Soccer coaches will ask for a copy of this form before the start of training for the season. Notarization is not required.

If you have any other questions, as always, please email and we’ll be there to help.
