U.S. Youth Soccer National League kicks off in December
November 14th, 2008 8:45AM



The U.S. Youth Soccer National League's 2008-2009 season will begin with girls' games Dec. 4-7 in Raleigh, N.C., and boys' games Dec. 11-14 in Dallas.

Both events are being held in conjunction with the Women's and Men's College Cup to provide greater exposure to collegiate coaches.

The U.S. Youth Soccer National League will play at top venues across the country including games at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex (Fla.), Bettye Wilson Fields (Nev.), Ross Stewart Soccer Complex (Texas), Mud Creek Soccer Complex (Ga.) and WakeMed Soccer Park and WRAL Soccer Center (N.C.).

A significant change for 2008-2009 is the addition of the under-17 age group for boys and girls. Teams will also compete in under-15 and under-16 leagues.

The top two teams, from each age group, advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships, and the top four teams, from each age group, secure their return to League play the following season.
