What is #EarnYourPlace?
Earn Your Place is the official hashtag of the Leagues Program and has been used specifically by the National League for a majority of the league's existence. It refers to the opportunity for the teams to earn their way into US Youth Soccer's top league and the continued challenges that present chances for teams and players to regularly prove themselves.
