South Texas Teams Crowned State Champions

Over Memorial Day weekend, a total of 61 teams in the Under-14 through Under-19 age groups from Eastern and Western District and El Paso came together to compete in the 2010 South Texas US Youth Soccer National Championship Series State Cup Tournament at Lindsay Lyons Park in Houston.

The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is the most prestigious youth soccer national championship tournament in the country. More than 185,000 players on over 10,000 teams have an opportunity to showcase their skills against the best competition in the nation.

A year-long series of competitions for boys and girls in multiple age brackets are used to identify the top teams in each US Youth Soccer State Association for an opportunity to participate in a regional championship tournament. All State Champions and selected wildcard teams from the US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues compete in one of the four US Youth Soccer Regional Championships for an opportunity to advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championship Tournament.

The boys and girls State Champions in the Under-14 through Under-19 age groups automatically advance to the US Youth Soccer Region III Southern Regional Tournament in Baton Rouge, June 17-23, to battle the champions from the other Region III states for the opportunity to advance to July's National Championship Tournament in Overland Park, Kans.
