Super Y-League Play – U13 through U17 (Boys) and U13 through U15 (Girls)

  • What is Super Y:  The Super Y-League is a youth soccer league associated with the United Soccer League (USL). USL encompasses men’s and women’s professional and amateur teams in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.
  • Why Super Y:  It is a pathway for those players interested in taking their game and soccer career to the professional level. The Super Y League is dedicated to the progression of future professional players and has steered the course for development of elite clubs, players and coaches. Because of their affiliations, the Super Y League has opened countless doors for players to be identified for U.S. National Team programs. The Super Y League contains the youth academies of Major League Soccer, United Soccer League and Premier Development League
  • Training:  Players will train June through mid-August.
  • League Games:  Players will play in a 10-Game Season beginning in mid-June and concluding mid-August.
  • Locations of Games:  Players will play in the Mid-Atlantic Region including teams in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Washington DC. Teams include BARCA Elite FC, Calvert Soccer Association, CYA, FASA, FCV, Maryland Rush, Northern Virginia Royals, Pittsburgh Riverhounds, Prince William Courage, Real Maryland FC, Thunder Soccer Club, Triangle FC, Virginia Alliance, Washing FC, and Washington Spirit.
  • Championship Game Opportunity: Top team(s) compete in the North American Finals Championship Game.
  • Regional Player Pool: Players will be evaluated over the course of the league by their own coach, opposing coach, and Super Y League Regional and National Scouting Staff. Nominations will be tallied and invitations will be distributed throughout the season to players to attend the Regional Scouting Series. At this Series, players will be selected for the Regional Select Team and then considered for the Super Y-League National Pool.
  • National Player Pool:  Players will have opportunity to earn a spot on the National Player Pool – these players are recognized as the top 10% of the League.
