Local teams advance to U.S. Youth Soccer Region III Presidents Cup

Staff reports

FRISCO, Texas – Teams from across U.S. Youth Soccer Region III will compete at the regional Presidents Cup, June 10-13, in Broken Arrow, Okla., at Indian Springs Sports Complex.

Louisiana teams include the Gonzales Tsunami in the Under-14 Boys division, and the Gonzales Flames in the Under-16 Girls division.

Each U.S. Youth Soccer State Association has determined the path to which teams advance to the Region III Presidents Cup. The teams will be among the more than 111 under-13 through under-17 boys and girls teams from the 12 state associations competing for the regional Presidents Cup title.

The 12 state associations in Region III, including host Oklahoma, will participate. The other associations represented are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Texas, South Carolina, South Texas and Tennessee.

The Presidents Cup is designed for those teams seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title.  The cup provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community from the state to regional to national levels of U.S. Youth Soccer.

Regional winners of the under-14 through under-17 age groups earn advancement to the 2010 U.S. Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup July 8-11, at Richard Siegel Soccer Complex in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
