2016-17 National League Las Vegas Schedules: BoysGirls

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 national team, collegiate and professional levels. In addition to recruiting opportunities, the top finishers from each division will earn a ticket to the 2017 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Frisco, Texas, creating additional value and pressure as each game could make or break their chance at competing for the National Championship. The top finishers in the 15U, 16U and 17U age groups will also earn an automatic spot in the 2017-18 National League season.

Just three boys teams and six girls teams have solidified a place in the 2017 National Championships. Entering play in Las Vegas, 31 spots — 17 for the boys and 14 for the girls — are still up for grabs, as a majority of the teams head into the event with hopes of punching a ticket to Frisco, Texas.

The National League is the most competitive league available in the country, and is an extension of the highly successful US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues (US Youth Soccer Eastern Regional League, Midwest Regional League, Southern Regional Premier League and Far West Regional League). National League teams are among the best in the nation and each team has had to earn their place in the league with a proven track record of success in US Youth Soccer regional and national competition, regardless of club affiliation or location.

The National League’s alumni have gone on to prove themselves at the collegiate and professional levels, with former players competing in NCAA Division I, II and III, Major League Soccer, National Women’s Soccer League, the UEFA Champions League, the Olympics and the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The top pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft and the last three NWSL Drafts (2015-17) have each been former National League players.
