Tuesday, November 28, 2017 -- The US Youth Soccer National League Girls Fall Showcase in Wilson, North Carolina, is set to kick off on November 30 with three Arizona teams vying for a chance to book their ticket to the 2018 US Youth Soccer National Championships.
Qualification to this year's National League is based on results from the previous season and the three teams traveling to the East Coast this week and how they qualified are:
Arizona Arsenal 01 Girls (won 2016-17 Far West Regional Desert Premier League Division)
CCV Stars 04 Girls (won 2016-17 Far West Regional Desert Premier League Division)
Scottsdale Blackhawks Taylor 00 Girls (won last year's National League group with a perfect 7-0 record).
The top two finishers from each of the two divisions in the U14 and U15 age groups, as well as the winners in each of the four divisions in the U16 through U18 age groups, will earn an automatic berth to the 2018 US Youth Soccer National Championships which will be held July 25-29 in Frisco, Texas.
If you're wondering where the Arizona boys teams are, they will be competing in their Fall Showcase from December 7-10. The five teams that made it are: FBSL Tuzos Academy 04 Boys, Excel Soccer Academy 02 Boys, FBSL Tuzos Academy 02 Boys, SC del Sol 01 Boys, and Valparaiso United 01 Boys.
