This website follows the 2007 birth year boys playing travel soccer with SOCA, the Soccer Organization Charlottesville Area. Most of the boys in this group began playing on SOCA Challenge teams at U10 and below. They then went on to U11 (2017-2018) Apprentice and U12 (2018-2019) Apprentice teams playing 9v9, followed by the SOCA U13 (2019-2020) Boys Elite team playing 11v11, and are now the Skyline Elite U14 Boys (2020-2021).
While the Teamsnap application will continue to be the platform used for scheduling and communication, the goal of this web site is to give soccer parents additional and more detailed information on team events, games, tournaments and any other general information that may be of use. We’ll record game results here and may keep limited statistics like goals scored and assists. This will also be a platform to host photos and videos.
