Bradenton-Sarasota, FL (July 25, 2021) – Albion SC and Total Futbol Academy OC captured championship trophies this morning during the Finals round of the 2021 US Youth Soccer National Championships, which was held at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, FL from July 19-25. The National Championships competition is the highest level of achievement for club team play within the US Youth Soccer year.

Albion SC defeated Ohio-North’s Cleveland Force with a 1-0 shutout to bring home the Girls 14U National Championship title. Total Futbol Academy OC had to face their fellow Cal South club OC Surf North in the Boys 14U final, whom they also defeated 1-0. Five Cal South teams in all had made it to Saturday’s Semi-finals round, with three teams moving to Sunday’s finals.

Cal South had eight teams in total participating at the event. Three of Cal South’s competing teams this week – the Boys 14U and 15U Total Futbol Academy squads and Boys 18U Santa Barbara SC Elite – won their bids by winning titles at the recently completed US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships in Boise, ID. The other three teams that ended their regional campaign as Finalists – Girls 19U Beach FC, 17U LASC and 14U Legends FC – also secured spots at the Nationals as the teams they played in the Finals each had already made Nationals due to their success via the National League.
