What is US Youth Soccer National League?
The National League provides an avenue for teams to play in meaningful matches against top competition from across the country for continued development. National League teams compete for the National League division titles within their gender age groups and 4 slots in each gender age group of the annual US Youth Soccer National Championships Finals, the oldest and most prestigious youth soccer national championships.
Teams that earn their spots in the National League have a proven track record of success in US Youth Soccer regional and national competitions and are among the nation's best. Hundreds of college scouts usually attend each National League weekend, creating another significant opportunity for the nation’s collegiate and National Team coaches to see National League players in an environment of meaningful play, citing the competitive level of each game as every team has to earn their spot in the competition, regardless of club affiliation or location.
Teams either qualify for National League spots or are selected by the NL Team Selection Committee for remaining open slots. Qualification and selection spots may vary based on a specific gender age group.
