US Youth Soccer is proud to announce the dates and locations for the 2017 US Youth Soccer Regional and National Presidents Cup events — a progressive, competitive experience for US Youth Soccer teams from the state to regional to US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup level. The 2017 National Presidents Cup will take place July 12-16 in Auburndale, Fla., at the Lake Myrtle Sports Park and will feature 40 Boys and Girls teams in the 13-U through 17/18-U age groups.
“Each year we begin the US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup competition by selecting the hosting sites for each level of this competition, which has quickly become one of US Youth Soccer's most popular programs,” US Youth Soccer Chair Jesse Harrell said. “The competition between potential sites to provide the best possible experience for the players, teams and fans becomes fiercer each year. We excitedly look forward to the final awarding of the four regional locations along with the site for the US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup.”
Each team will play preliminary matches Thursday, July 13 through Saturday, July 15 to determine the top two teams to play in the finals on Sunday, July 16.
“I am pleased that the 2017 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup is returning to Auburndale, Florida,” US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup Chair Will Maffit said. “The Florida Youth Soccer Association was a gracious host in 2013, and they are looking forward to welcoming the players, coaches, referees parents and administrators back to the beautiful Lake Myrtle Sports Complex. In addition to competing for the National Presidents Cup championship, I hope that the participants will be able to take advantage of all the wonderful amenities that the area has to offer.”
Each US Youth Soccer State Association determines the path through which its state teams advance to the regional competitions. Regional winners of the 13-U through 17/18-U Boys and Girls age groups will earn a berth to the US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup.
