FRISCO, Texas (December 1, 2008) – The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16, and new for 2008, the Under-17 Boys teams are set to kickoff play in this year-long competition December 11-14 at the Ross Stewart Soccer Complex in Dallas. Games are held in conjunction with the NCAA Men's College Cup to provide greater exposure of these elite teams to collegiate and national team coaches.

"Kicking off the first weekend of play for the boys, in the highly-successful US Youth Soccer National League, is very exciting because it sets the stage for a competition that brings together some of the nation's top teams playing at the highest level," said Paul Luchowski, US Youth Soccer National League Commissioner.  "The National League provides players the opportunity to develop and test themselves in meaningful matches, and everyone is looking forward to the number of collegiate coaches that are expected to be on hand."

The three age groups are comprised of the top teams in the nation who have earned their spots through advancement from one of the four US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues and look to continue playing at the highest level. Throughout league play, teams will not only be seeking elite development and identification, but they are also vying for one of the coveted top two spots in the League, which provides a direct path to the annual US Youth Soccer National Championships.

The national championships, established in 1976, is the country's most prestigious national youth soccer tournament, providing the opportunity for teams to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.

At last year's US Youth Soccer National Championships, seven of the eight championship finals slots in the Under-15 and Under-16 age groups were won by National League representatives. National League teams went on to claim the Under-15 boys (Baltimore Casa Mia Bays) and girls (Dallas Texans 93 Red Dallas) as well as Under-16 boys (Dallas Texans 92 Red) and girls (Dallas Texans Red 92) national titles.
