Eastern New York State Cup
Our Eastern New York State Cup is a highly competitive tournament where top-tier U12-U19 teams from our member leagues compete in a single-elimination format. The State Cup Champions in the U13-U19 age groups will then play in the prestigious Eastern Regional Championships, and the winners will advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships.
The Challenge Cup is for our younger teams, ranging from U10 to U16, providing them the chance to participate in well-balanced competition and test their strengths against teams at their respective level.
The Eastern New York State Cup Finals weekend takes place in June at Stringham Park in Lagrangeville, NY.
The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament, providing approximately 185,000 players on over 10,000 teams from US Youth Soccer State Associations the opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.
The US Youth Soccer National Championships cap a yearlong series of competitions for boys and girls teams in multiple age brackets as teams earn their way from the top teams in their state to the regional championship tournaments. US Youth Soccer State Champions and selected wildcard teams through US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues in most age groups are eligible to compete in one of four US Youth Soccer Regional Championships. The champions in the 13U through 19U age brackets from each regional event will converge in July for the US Youth Soccer National Championships.
Annually the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series provides the nation’s top collegiate coaches with the premier stage to identify and scout the most coveted players in the country. In 2017, over 600 coaches attended the US Youth Soccer Regional and National Championship events.
