11 Sep, 2020
The US Youth Soccer Piedmont Conference is excited to announce the slate of clubs that will be putting teams forward to compete within the 14U-19U Boys and Girls age groups in the 2020-21 season, beginning this fall. The Piedmont Conference is one of the 13 conferences within the US Youth Soccer National League, and it consists of teams from Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
The USYS Piedmont Conference will be structured as a single-tiered league this season, with up to 12 teams competing in each gender age bracket. The 14U-19U age groups will play a fall-based season, while the 13U Boys and Girls will play in the spring. The format of play within the Piedmont Conference will be up to an 11-match round-robin season, with event-based scheduling for out-of-state matchups and a self-schedule model for in-state matchups.
Piedmont Conference teams will be competing for qualification into the 2021 US Youth Soccer Southern Regional Championships, as well as qualification into the 2021-22 USYS National League Playoffs that will take place alongside the newly created National League Showcase Series.
