US Youth Futsal National Championships

The National Series

Futsal has always been considered an incredible training tool for soccer development, but over the past decade it has gained more traction than any other growing sport in the US. With USYF affiliates popping up all over the map, we wanted to give our youth the opportunity to grow as a player on a small scale, and use this growth to develop in the next levels. Introducing the USYF State Championship Series: the first stepping stone in the USYF Championship Series pathway.

The State Championship Series allows players to start small and grow exponentially, instead of having to enter Regionally and compete against top area talent. They're the perfect opportunity for young futsal talent to grow as individuals and a team, and prepare for the next steps in their USYF Championship Series journey with confidence.

The next step in the Championship Series Pathway is the Regional Championship Series. This series has been a pillar of the futsal community since our inception in 1994, and has served tens of thousands of young futsalers over the years. The Regional Championship Series collects the best teams in the region to play against each other in hopes for an invitation to the National Championship Series later in the season. Last year, we had 11 Regional Championships around the US, all played in the hubs of a region for easy access by all teams involved. Players can enter the Regional Championships two ways: A) fully-funded access through the State Championship or B) at-large registration. Multiple entrances allow for all players to play in such a prestigious program, and get a chance to play on a National level.

The next stop in the Championship Series Pathway is the National Championship Series. The National Championship Series is regarded as the highest-level of futsal play in the Nation, attracting top players, coaches, and scouts from coast to coast. The National Championship Series is held in Kansas at the culmination of the final Regional Championship. The winners & runners-up from each Regional Championship are automatically invited to the National Championship Series, with the opportunity to enter at-large for other teams. The National Championship Series is the most exclusive futsal tournament in the United States, and has been a mark of excellence by the futsal community since 1994.

The US Youth Futsal Championship Series is the country's largest and most prestigious national youth futsal competition. The 2019-2020 Championships included two USYF State Championships, 11 USYF Regional Championships and the largest attended National Championship in our history. 

´╗┐Combined, our 14 Championship Series events provided over 13,000 players on 1,300+ teams from 36 states the opportunity to showcase their talents against the best competition in the country. 

We are investing into growing our beautiful game and are currently accepting applications from candidates that are interested in hosting an upcoming USYF State Championship, which is part of our National Championship Series.

Our Goal

The goal of the USYF National Championship Series is simple.  We want to provide a clear pathway for the top teams in the country to compete at a local, regional, and national level.

The Championship Pathway

STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS:  The State Championships allow teams to compete locally against some of the top clubs in the area and get a feel for the competitive experience. Division winners will earn paid entry to the nearest USYF Regional Championships.  This is an open event for anyone to attend.

REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:  The Regional Championships draw from a larger geographic area and create a more competitive platform. Division winners earn an automatic bid to compete in the National Championships, Division Finalists will receive a preferred bid. This is an open event for anyone to attend, you do not have to win a state championship to register.

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:  The highest-level tournament for any youth futsal team in United States, the USYF National Championships bring together the most competitive futsal teams in the country to battle for the title of United States Youth Futsal National Champion. This is an invitation only event including teams that were either Champions or Finalists from their respective Regional Championships, or if additional space is needed to complete a bracket we will accept at-large applications from teams that competed in a Regional Championship.
