The 13U and 14U schedules for the US Youth Soccer New England Conference, managed by EDP Soccer are set and teams are ready to compete in the top USYS league in the region this fall. Top teams from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut will battle it out and compete to determine who can be the area's best.
As one of the 13 Conferences in the USYS National League, teams will also have the opportunity to compete in the new US Youth Soccer National League Showcase Series, which provides opportunities for teams to participate in showcases that match up similar teams from varying areas of the country on a national platform. Teams from the National League Conferences also have the opportunity to qualify for the 2021 USYS Eastern Regional Championships that will be hosted at Tuckahoe Turf Farm in Hammonton N.J., and the 2021-2022 USYS National League Playoffs.
"As we continue to elevate the overall standard and values of our club, we were keen on finding a league that would match our ambitions of delivering an unparalleled soccer experience to our players and their families,” said Tim Larocca, CFC Director of Coaching. “The US Youth Soccer National League programming aligns with ours by providing a high-level competitive league and showcase format in order to assist players in achieving their goal of competing in college and beyond. We look forward to competing in the USYS New England Conference.”
