FRISCO, Texas (Dec. 1, 2009) – The US Youth Soccer National League Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 Boys teams will open the third season of League play Dec. 10-13 at Wilson Gillette Soccer Complex in Wilson, N.C., in conjunction with the NCAA Division I College Cup Championships to provide greater exposure of these elite teams to collegiate and national team coaches.

"The US Youth Soccer National League looks to reach new heights this year as the boys once again open the season with games played in conjunction with the NCAA Men's College Cup, an event that elevates the exposure of the League's elite talent to the numerous college coaches who will be in attendance," 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 vast opportunities the League offers, including the ultimate prize of advancing to the US Youth Soccer National Championships."

The League is an extension of the highly successful US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues (US Youth Soccer Region I Premier League, Midwest Regional League, Region III Premier League and Far West Regional League).  The National League provides an avenue for teams to play in meaningful matches against top competition from across the country for continued development and opportunities for exposure at the next level.  In addition to recruiting opportunities, National League teams compete for the league title and two slots per gender age group to the annual US Youth Soccer National Championships.

Since its inception, teams representative of the National League have captured a combined eight US Youth Soccer National Championships. In 2008, seven of the eight championship finals slots in the Under-15 and 16 age groups were won by National League teams, which resulted in the League's first four National Championships. The League notched four more National Championship titles in 2009 including the Under-15 Boys (Baltimore Casa Mia Bays) and Girls (San Diego Surf) as well as Under-16 Boys (Dallas Texans 93 Red) and Under-17 Girls (Eclipse Select).
