FRISCO, Texas (December 22, 2008) – The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16, and new for 2008, the Under-17 Girls teams are set to resume play Dec. 31-Jan. 2, at Disney'sWide World of Sports Complex®. Games are held in conjunction with Disney's Soccer Showcase (Girls) to provide greater exposure to collegiate, professional and national team coaches.

"After the great feedback from our kickoff event, held during the NCAA Women's College Cup, we know these games at Disney will be well received by the numerous coaches at the next level seeking to identify future players at one of the top venues in the country," 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 getting back on the field."

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.

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.
