The US Youth Soccer National League is excited to announce an enhanced format to the national events beginning 2023-24. The new competition structure allows ALL of the best teams in the National League to compete against each other on their qualification pathway to the USYS National Championships*.
Please visit the National League social media channels, found at the bottom of this email, to access the announcement and view complete details.
The National League will continue to follow a structure of two national events for teams that earn their place via performance in the NL Conferences from the previous season. Qualifying teams will start by competing in Conference Playoffs in December (Orlando) and then progress to a National League P.R.O. event, which will merge the top Conference teams with the top Elite 64 teams.
Keeping true to #EarnYourPlace, all clubs regardless of size, competing in the NL Conferences or Elite 64, will have to earn results throughout the competition to progress to the next level. With its size and scope, the National League is the one league that can offer this inclusive model, providing a unified pathway to the National Championships for the 4,000+ teams that compete in the National League.
Please view and share the announcement on the National League social channels:
The registration and open slot application for the NL Conference Playoffs will open mid-late April 2023, which will be announced in a separate posting.
*USYS National Championship qualification requires teams to follow appropriate NCS qualification criteria.
