US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues

USYS-REG-LEAGUES-MAP-2016

The US Youth Soccer Premier Leagues provide an opportunity for the most competitive teams in each region to play each other on a scheduled basis while also competing for placement in the prestigious US Youth Soccer Regional Championships, as well as the highly-competitive US Youth Soccer National League. Champions of the Regional Leagues will move on to their respective Regional Championships, the second stage of the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series, with hopes of advancing to the US Youth Soccer National Championships, the oldest and most prestigious national soccer tournament in the country.
 
Additionally, the 2015-16 Regional League premier division champions earn qualification for next year’s US Youth Soccer National League. The National League competition is for the nation's top teams in the Under-14 through Under-18 boys and girls age groups, consisting of a total of 16 teams per gender age group. The National League offers additional exposure to collegiate, professional and U.S. National Team coaches and offers the highest level of competition in the country as each team must earn their place in the league. In each gender age group, the top two teams from each division (Blue and Red) advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships.
