BRADENTON-SARASOTA, Florida (July 20, 2021) - The US Youth Soccer National Championships kicked off Tuesday, with four New Jersey teams competing at the Premiere Sports Campus in Sarasota, Florida. The opening day of group play saw teams from the Garden State take an overall 1-2-1 record. 


The teams from the 13U-19/20U age groups are searching for a spot in the single elimination rounds later this week. Teams will play one game each day, until group play concludes on Thursday. Winners of group play will then advance to the US Youth Soccer National Championships Semifinal on Saturday, in hopes of continuing the quest for the national championship.  


With just three games to decide their destiny, NJ teams wasted little time in bringing the passion to the field on the premiere stage.


Let’s look at the NJ teams in action at the US Youth Soccer National Championships…
