24 South Texas Teams Advance To Regional Competitions
US Youth Soccer National Championship Series
The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament that offers approximately 185,000 players on more than 10,000 teams an opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation. Each of the 55 state associations within US Youth Soccer sponsor a competition to identify a State Champion in the Under-14 through Under-19 age groups to represent the state at the Regional, and hopefully, the National Championship Tournament. As a result of the USYSNC / STYSA State Cup, the following teams are preparing to travel to Raleigh, North Carolina June 19-25 to participate in the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series Region III Southern Regionals with a goal of qualifying to advance to the National Championship Tournament to be held in July.

The 2008 STYSA President’s Cup identified teams to represent each of the 12 states in Region III to advance to the Region III President’s Cup Regionals. For the past few years, a regional competition has been offered by Region III to provide teams in this second tier competition an opportunity to advance to a higher level of play. Under-13 through Under-17 President’s Cup Champions are on their way to Columbus, Georgia to participate in the Region III President’s Cup Regionals this weekend, June 13-15th. This year teams in the Under-14 through Under-17 age groups also have an opportunity to qualify to advance on to a National Tournament, the National Director’s Cup, to be held July 17-20th in Kirkwood, Delaware.
