Captain's Corner

Welcome to the CASA Captain's Corner


This page contains valuable resources that CASA captains to use as a guide to effectively manage your club to a successful season.


Captains Corner Forum
We recommend all captains join the Captain's Corner Facebook Group, a dedicated CASA Captains Corner Forum for Captains to share ideas, pose questions, schedule friendlies, and anything else soccer related. If you are a captain and would like to access this group please contact us at communications@phillysoccer.org for an invitation. Sorry, Captains Only.


Need Help with Uniforms? 
All Casa Teams are required to have numbered shirts of the same color. CASA is excited to team up with local partner Angelo's Soccer Corner - take advantage of exclusive CASA pricing in the store and check them out online at soccercorner.com.


Interested in Teaming up with a Local Sponsor or Pub?

For the Spring 2017 season, CASA is ready to assist your team in finding and signing with a local sponsor. Many pubs and bars are actually looking for teams like yours to target and promote their business! Please get in contact with Tim at thampson@phillysoccer.org for more information ahead of the Spring 2016 season. Partnering up with a local sponsor is a great way to help your team with costs while it promotes your sponsor in an ideal culture of local athletes. 

If this is how you celebrate a WIN, there are bars that want to partner with you!



Add New Players to Your Team

Are you in need of a few more players to complete your squad?

Be sure to check out our free agents forum here: http://phillysoccer.org/players?programRole=FREEAGENT

  • When you find a free agent, please click on the Invite to Team button so the rest of the captains know not to contact the player.
  • Captains may also invite team players to join their team by simply sending a team invite by email. You will find this option in your Dashboard when you click on your current team for this season. In the gray bar (on the right) under Roster, click Send Invites.
  • Many of CASA's most successful clubs were with adding free agents. While Lionel Messi hasn't registered for CASA yet, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the level of play many free agents are capable of!


Spring 2017 Casa Roster Policies

Casa team rosters are regulated by team captains and monitored by Casa officials. We take a proactive stand on team rosters ahead of the Kelly Cup Champions League and therefore asking all team captains to comply with the following policies.


Players

  1. Team rosters on the CASA website are to be complete and accurate with player full name, email address and shirt number.
  2. Casa referees will be conducting random spot checks with your roster listed on the website. Penalties will be applied to those who do not comply.
  3. It is your duty as a team captain that your team roster be as accurate as possible. 
  4. Notify all players to bring a form of identification with them to all league matches.
  5. Any team proven to the satisfaction of the Division Commissioner to have played an ineligible player shall automatically forfeit the game concerned, the opposing Club shall be awarded the three points and a fine of $100 shall be imposed. In the event a losing Club is proven to have played an ineligible player, the Division Commissioner shall determine the penalty for such infringement, and a fine of $100 will be imposed.
  6. Clubs that have qualified to play in the Kelly Cup Champions League playoffs in all divisions are to play the players that were signed to their teams throughout the regular season. This is to eliminate the movement of players by clubs from team to team. 

So what about guest players?
In the event that you have less than 15 rostered players present for a particular match, you are eligible to invite guest players to your team so you can field a full team.
    1. A maximum of three (3) guest players are allowed to play per team per game.
