The US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup is designed for those teams seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title. The cup provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a state to regional to national level of US Youth Soccer. This tournament is different from State Cup, but does provide an important path especially for high school aged groups to regional and national competitions that provide players with important regional and national playing exposure, particularly for those players wishing to play at the college level.
The U13-U14 and High School Boys State Presidents Cup (U15-U17) will be held in Overland Park, KS between May 28-June 5. Winning teams in the State Presidents Cup will advance to Regional Presidents Cup play in mid-June. Region II States competing in Regional play will come from Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio South and Ohio North, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota
