KSC Academy 96/97 Boys earns a place in the 2014/15 National League

KSC Academy 96/97 Boys was announced as one of the 160 teams that have earned their place in the 2014-15 US Youth Soccer National League season.

The league, entering its eighth season, is home to the nation’s top Under-14 through Under-18 Boys and Girls club soccer teams, with each team having an individual proven track record of continued success in US Youth Soccer programs. Each gender age group fields 16 teams divided into two divisions, and the top two finishers from each division receive an automatic berth to the 2015 US Youth Soccer National Championships, the oldest and most prestigious youth soccer national championship competition, to be held July 20-26, 2015 in Tulsa, Okla. 

The four National League representatives will join the four Regional Champions for a total of eight qualifiers per age group at the National Championships in the Under-14 through Under-18 divisions.

The 2014-15 National League field includes 66 of the 72 Under-13 through Under-17 teams that qualified for the 2014 National Championships, 16 of the 20 finalists and seven of 10 champions. 

As is the case with the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series events and the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program, the National League creates another significant opportunity for the nation's collegiate, professional and national team staffs to see players in an environment of meaningful play. 

"The US Youth Soccer National League continues to provide the top competition for boys and girls in the country as each team must prove itself to gain entry into the league," said Paul Luchowski, National League commissioner.  "National League teams have claimed 18 of 26 possible National Championships in the past three years, which speaks to the quality of the teams in the league and the value of the competition.  Hundreds of collegiate, professional and national team scouts attend each National League date for just that reason."
