3 TEAMS TO COMPETE IN USYS NATIONAL LEAGUE

Updated: Jul 13, 2019


OFFICIAL: The club will place three age groups: the 2005, 2002 and 2001 teams to compete in the newly announced North Atlantic Conference EDP Conference of the USYS National League this upcoming Fall 2019 season.


The US Youth Soccer National League competition is for the nation's top teams in the 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U, 18U and 19U boys and girls age groups. The 14U through 18U divisions consist of up to 32 teams per gender age group, while the 19U age group features up to 16 teams for each gender. 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.


The top teams from each division advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships, the oldest and most prestigious youth soccer national championship in the country. The four National League representatives will join the four Regional Champions in the 14U through 19U age groups to play for the National Championship. The top teams in each 14U through 18U division also secure a spot to return to National League play the following season.


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 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup.


The National League, which held its inaugural season in 2007-08, is the national tier and highest level of competition in the US Youth Soccer National Leagues program. Following a restructuring of the National Leagues program in 2018, the program also features 13 Conferences (formerly Regional Leagues) that offer multi-state competition across the various geographical areas of the country.

Tryouts for all three age groups will be announced online and on FA Euro's social media platforms imminently. For more information, email marco.balsamo@faeuro.com
