US Youth Soccer Regional Champions Qualify for 2014-15 National League

FRISCO, Texas (July 3, 2014) — The US Youth Soccer Regional Championships wrapped up on July 1, with Regional winners and representatives in the Under-13 through Under-17 Boys and Girls Divisions earning automatic qualification into the prestigious US Youth Soccer National League for the 2014-15 season.

The National League is an extension of the highly successful US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues (Region I Premier League, Region II Midwest Regional League, Region III Southern Premier League and Region IV Far West Regional League). Automatic Regional League qualification was added to the National League format in January 2013, and two teams per age group from each of the four Regional Leagues in the Under-13 through Under-17 age groups, with the exception Under-13s in Region III, earn a spot in the 2014-15 National League season.

The 40 Regional champions and representatives in the Under-13 through Under-17 Boys and Girls Divisions, as well as the Under-13 finalists in Region III, will move on to the National League. They will join the Regional League representatives and 2013-14 top two finishers from each National League Division for the 2014-15 season.

* Qualify for the National League as Regional Championships finalist due to Regional winner having previously qualified via top two finish in the 2013-14 National League
** Finalists in the Under-13 age group in Region III qualify for National League

Teams that earn their spot in the National League have a proven track record of success in US Youth Soccer regional and national competitions, and are among the nation's best as every team has earned its place in the league based on previous and continued individual success, regardless of location or club affiliation. 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 collegiate, professional and National Team levels. 

In 2013-14, the National League Under-18 age group included 196 girls and 132 boys that committed to play collegiate soccer. Players found opportunities at some of the top programs in the country, including Florida, Georgetown, North Carolina, Penn State, Virginia and Wake Forest on the girls’ side. National League boys committed to programs such as California, Georgetown, Indiana, Marquette, Navy and Stanford. 

In addition to recruiting opportunities, the top two finishers from each National League division (Blue and Red) will earn a ticket to the US Youth Soccer National Championships, making each match valuable and creating an added element of pressure as players compete for a chance play for the National Championship.

The US Youth Soccer National Championships is the oldest and most prestigious youth soccer national championship competition in the country. Through the first six years of play, National League teams have gone on to claim 26 of a possible 38 National Championship titles. The 2014 National Championships will be held this summer in Germantown, Md., July 21-27.
