Mens White/Reserve Team
CPR White is the club’s elite squad and plays in the highly competitive Cosmopolitan Soccer League 1st Division. CPR White is made up of two teams: a First Team and a Reserve Team, but act as one squad with players moving from one team to another. Most squad members have a history of playing at a semi-professional or D1 college level, in the US and abroad. We compete against some of the best amateur teams in the country and regularly reach cup finals and league playoffs. Our First team won the State Cup in 2017, the League Cup in 2012 and our Reserve team were league champions in 2010 and 2011, and State Cup winners in 2012. The level of commitment to play for CPR White is high, with regular attendance expected at weekly training sessions and games on Sundays. We also like to enjoy time together off the field and foster a great team spirit through regularly heading to the club bar after games and holding team events. We are always looking for talented players so if you are interested in trying out with CPR White please contact the team manager to Whites Manager
Mens Red/Reserve Team
The CPR Reds play in Division 2 of the Cosmopolitan Soccer League as a result of accepting promotion post championship win in Metro 1 during the 2014-15 season (their first championship since 10 years prior in 04-05). The 2nd Division requires a 2 team squad with a reserve team in CSL Division 2. Playing level is very competitive with most guys having played college soccer or at a similar level. The average age of the players is around 24-25 with the full age range falling between 20-30 as it’s an open level competition. The team encourages hard play and commitment both on the field and at the pub so expect to be held to a high level of performance on Sundays. Lastly, while playing soccer is a dream we all continue to live, we understand family and work come first, but we ask that soccer come next. If you feel this applies to you, please send an email to Reds Captain
Old Boys (Over 30s)
The Old Boys are an Over 30s team and play in the highest Over 30 Cosmopolitan Soccer League Division. They were in the O30s final this past season and finished 2nd place for the prior two seasons (2015-2016 and 2014-2015) so continue to be one of the top teams there. The Old Boys play in a competitive league containing many international and former D1 players (some are just a little slower than their earlier playing days). The team is very social, with a typically good pub turnout after games and at club and team outings. But we also take our soccer seriously and intend on competing for the league title each year by weighting minutes toward the best players. If you feel this team is right for you, please send an email to OldBoys Managers. Please include you age, your position, and brief history of your soccer career.
Always looking for talented players!
Grays (Over 30s)

After two consecutive seasons winning promotion to higher divisions the CPR Grays have played in the 1st division the last 4 seasons. 2016 was their best finish yet finishing 3rd out of 18 teams. The team is also active socially with a mix of players who have been part of the CPR club for over 10 years and new players who just joined this season. Always looking for those with talent on the field and those who enjoy a post game pint. If you feel this team is right for you, please send an email to Grays Managers.

Orange (Over 30s)
New 2016-2017 CPR team (nee Nieuw Amsterdam), description coming soon…
Legends (Over 39s currently, escalating each year to finalize as O-40)
Yes, actually this team was started by some CPR “legends”. 250+ caps and many pieces of hardware credited to some of the stalwarts. But don’t despair, among the wily veterans there is room for some new recruits as well. All players good enough to make the roster who RSVP and turn up will get their share of minutes. But make no mistake, this is not a casual kickabout team. We finished runners up in our Division in 2013-2014 while playing the eventual Champions tight in 3 games separated by a single goal. We intend to win every game we play, and while we understand it’s amateur soccer, we expect players to respect their teammates and show up when they say they will and give it their best effort. To apply to be a Legend, you will play well with others both on the field and at the pub after games. Contact Legends Managers. Please include you age, your position, and brief history of your soccer career.
Always looking for talented players!
