USYF State Championships

The State Championship Series // Powered by Senda

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 United States. With USYF affiliates popping up all over the map, we wanted to give our youth a clear pathway to compete at a local, regional, and national level. The State Championships allow players to start small and grow exponentially, instead of having to enter Regionally and compete against top area talent. The State Championships are the perfect opportunity for our local community to compete while preparing for the next steps in their USYF Championship Series journey with confidence.

The US Youth Futsal Championship Series is the country's largest and most prestigious national youth futsal competition. In 2022, there were 13 Regional and 4 State Championships. Nationals held in July 2022 with a record number 187 teams participating.

´╗┐Combined, our 17 Championship Series events provided  11,833 players on 1,233 teams the opportunity to showcase their talents against the best competition in the country.
