Champions Celebrated at Southern Presidents Cup

June 18, 2023 05:00 PM


GREENVILLE, South Carolina (June 18, 2023) - More than 160 teams competed June 14-18 at the 2023 Southern Presidents Cup in Greenville, South Carolina. Games were played at the MESA Soccer Complex in Greer with a trip to the 2023 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup on the line.

USYS' South Region, which consists of 12 State Associations, will send 26 teams to the national competition held July 7-11 in Wichita, Kansas. Florida teams had a strong showing this past week and will send the most representatives out of the South's State Associations with six.
Jenger Parrish, head coach of Tennessee SC 09G Showcase (TN), talked about what the 2023 US Youth Soccer Southern Presidents Cup experience means to her team. 
"There are so many life lessons in this -- there were a couple of games we went down a goal and we had to fight back,” Parrish said. “There's other games that we went up and we had to learn how to hold on to that - just being able to adjust to the situation.”
Parrish also shared her thoughts on what US Youth Soccer has done to give her girls the opportunity to develop. 
“You know they don’t always get along – they're 13/14-year-old girls, so figuring out how to still work as a team, maybe when you’re not on the same page,” Parrish said. “This experience I think has helped them grow as young ladies and I think they're just going to keep growing into the most amazing young adults."
