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 Region I Premier League, Midwest Regional League, Region III 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 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 two finishers from each division (Blue and Red) will earn a ticket to the 2013 US Youth Soccer National Championships
in Overland Park, Kan., making each match valuable to the team's fate as it could make or break their chance at competing for the National Championship. The top two finishers in the Under-15, 16 and 17 age groups will also earn an automatic spot in the 2013-2014 National League season.
Eight Boys teams and eight Girls teams have solidified a top-two finish in their division and a spot in the National Championships. Eight more spots per gender are still up for grabs heading into Las Vegas.
