13U Boys LAPSL, 14U Boys Necaxa USA, and 15 Boys AVSC Storm each earned their spots in this year’s National Presidents Cup by capturing a regional title at the 2023 USYS Far West Presidents Cup in Boise, ID three weeks ago in June.

In the 13U Boys final, Necaxa USA were defeated 3-2 in their bid for a national title by Miami Lakes United of Florida. Cal South goes 1 for 3 at the National Presidents Cup. Congratulations to all three of our teams at the event, and a special shout-out to AVSC Storm for their title win!

In the 14U Boys match, Necaxa USA defeated Azteca Academy of Kansas, 3-1, to become the second Cal South team to make tomorrow’s Finals round and aim for a national title.
