Under-16 Boys to solidify rankings in Atlanta

FRISCO, Texas (February 16, 2009) – The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16, and new for 2008-2009, the Under-17 Boys teams are set to resume play Friday, Feb. 27 – Sunday, March 1, at Mud Creek Soccer Complex in Marietta, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta.

"Each weekend of National League play has been well received by the participating teams and numerous college coaches," said Paul Luchowski, US Youth Soccer National League Commissioner.  "The National League provides players the opportunity to develop and test themselves in meaningful matches, while competing for the title in their respective age group and qualification to the 2009 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Lancaster, Mass. this July." 

The National League champion in the Under-16 Boys age group will be decided in Marietta and the Under-17 Boys champion is likely to be crowned as well. The Under-15 Boys champion will be decided after the last weekend of play March 20-22 in Detroit, Mich.

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.
