marzo 16, 2009

WINNERS MOVE ON TO PRESIDENTS TOURNAMENT REGIONALS IN JUNE


March 16, 2009 (Lancaster, CA) - The Youngers brackets of the 2009 Cal South State Cup finished up the last two weekends of February with the crowning of 10 champions in the U9 through U13 age brackets. Play had been delayed off and on through February due to inclement weather, but totally concluded by March 1. In a showing of just how diverse the strength of play has grown throughout Southern California, teams from ten different clubs took home State Cup trophies in the Youngers round.

Now deep into its 31st year, around 1400 teams annually take part in the Cal South State Cup for the honor of being crowned as State Cup Champion. For the first time this year, Cal South State Cup champions will get the chance to directly move on to another level, as US Youth Soccer will be holding the inaugural Presidents Tournament Regional and National Championships later this year.

State Cup champions in the U13-U17 brackets will now move forward to represent Cal South at the US Youth Soccer Region IV Presidents Tournament in Tri-Cities, Washington from June 11-14, 2009, where they will face teams from the 13 other western states that make up US Youth Soccer's Region IV. Champions at the regional level would then move on to the US Youth Soccer Presidents Tournament National Championships, scheduled to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina from July 16-19, 2009.
