QUALIFYING FOR THE NATIONALS

The USYF National Championships is a competition that brings together the top Futsal teams from around the country, usually requires qualifying through one of our Regional Championships.  Due to local Covid restrictions, some Regionals were not allowed to hold the event.   We will consider At-Large applications from those teams and teams that participated in a Regional but were not Champions or Finalists in a division.

Teams are eligible to apply for the USYF National Championships under 2 categories; Guaranteed Acceptance or At-Large Application.

Guaranteed Acceptance Teams - Teams that played in a USYF Regional and were awarded division Champion or Finalist. These teams have until 7 days after their Regional to register and pay the National tournament fee to retain their guaranteed acceptance status.  If registration and payment is not completed within 7 days, teams will forfeit their guaranteed acceptance status and we will look to fill brackets with At-Large Applicants,

At-Large Teams - These are teams that either competed in a Championship Series event and were not awarded a Guaranteed Acceptance or they are teams that were unable to compete in a Championship Series Event entirely.

  1. After all guaranteed bids are accepted, the next preference for consideration will be given to teams that participated in a current year USYF Regional, but were not crowned Champions or Finalists. 

  2. After those teams have been placed, the remaining slots will be filled by any additional At-Large candidates.

To be considered, all at large teams must register and pay by February 15th, 2022.  The tournament committee will review the At Large applications and acceptance status will be sent to those teams no later than March 1st, 2022.
