FRISCO, Texas – Soccer America magazine named the top 30 boys youth soccer clubs in   
 America.  Again, US Youth Soccer continues as the common thread of America's best. 

Now in its eighth installment, Soccer America selected the top 30 boys clubs, based on success of their teams in national youth competitions over the last three years and national recognition for players from these clubs in 2010.
The most important criteria for determining "Soccer America's Top 30 youth rankings" was success in the US Youth Soccer National Championships during a three-year cycle (2008-2010) and the number of players who went on to U.S. Soccer National Teams and were selected to US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program rosters.
"Congratulations to each of the clubs selected as 'America's Best Youth Clubs' by Soccer America," said John Sutter, president of US Youth Soccer. "It's wonderful to see that this publication continues to recognize the work of coaches, players and administrators. These clubs are honored for their dedication and efforts to the game. Their recognition provides us with another opportunity to be proud of how clubs, leagues, State Associations and national programs advance soccer to be 'The Game for All Kids'."
"Selecting America's annual youth rankings has become very difficult because of the increasing quality we're seeing in all parts of the country and the range of playing opportunities available for players," said Paul Kennedy, editor in chief and general manager of Soccer America. "The most important criteria for our rankings is success in US Youth Soccer National Championships, which have also expanded to include additional top teams of the US Youth Soccer National League."
The Indiana Soccer Association is proud to announce that one of its member clubs was recognized by Soccer America magazine as one of the Top 30 Boys Youth Soccer Clubs in America. This recognition not only represents the great work of Carmel United Soccer Club but also the numerous administrators, volunteers, coaches, parents and players from around the state of Indiana.
