2014 Region 1 President s Cup

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 series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community from the state to regional to national levels of US Youth Soccer.

Regional qualifiers, known as US Youth Soccer Regional Presidents Cup events, will determine the teams competing in the National President Cup and feature boys and girls teams in the Under-14 through Under-17 age groups.   US Youth Soccer Region 1 tradionally holds the regional competition over the Memorial Day Weekend.  Teams that win at the regional level advance to play for the national championship later in the summer.

New York State West uses the President's Division of the Thruway Soccer League to determine invitations to the President's Cup.  NYSW teams that win the President’s Division will receive an invitation to represent NYSW in the following season’s US Youth Soccer Region 1 President’s Cup.  Should a team elect to be the NYSW representative in President’s Cup, the team cannot enter into the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series (State Cup).
