US Youth Soccer Announces National League Showcase Series

21 Oct, 2020


The US Youth Soccer National League Showcase Series offers a unique opportunity for National League Conference teams to compete within a national platform. Each showcase provides diverse cross-Conference matchups against teams from differing parts of the country — testing each player to adapt to various styles of play and new challenges that arise when facing uncommon opponents.

Group alignments based on Conference performance will create opportunities for evenly-matched and competitive games, which creates an optimal environment for scouting. Given the number of competitive teams and geographic diversity, the National League Showcase Series presents an invaluable opportunity for scouts from all levels — college, professional and international, along with US Youth Soccer ODP — to evaluate a large number of players who will become future key contributors to their programs.

APPLICATIONS

Team applications for each showcase are now available. The link to the application for each event is listed above and on the individual showcase webpage. The deadline for teams to submit applications for the showcases is Aug. 28, 2020.

Each team should apply for only its top choice of event. While filling out the application form, there will be options to select preferred backup events and to note if the team wishes to attend multiple showcases.

Please contact nationalleague@usyouthsoccer.org with any questions.

SEEDING

A flexible seeding system is used for the National League Showcase Series. Seeding is based on teams’ most recent, or previous, Conference records and level of competition. Our objective is to match top teams in one Conference against top teams from the other Conferences, and the same objective applies to teams in the middle and lower half of Conference standings. National League Conference Managers will have oversight of the seeding process to ensure that teams are grouped properly.
RULES & INFO

The operating procedures for the National League Showcase Series will soon be posted.
