"We are honored to be accepted into the USYS Elite 64! The league will provide our club a high level platform in which we will play meaningful games against other like-minded clubs on a regular basis which will further develop our players and showcase our teams both regionally and nationally.
Joining the E64 will enhance the college recruitment process for our players by exposing them to college coaches and giving them opportunities to play at the next level. The club vs. club format for games will create a professional environment on game day while fostering growth and camaraderie within our club.
We are very excited for our players, families, coaches, and community to have the opportunity to experience the top USYS platform in the country!" by Vangel Nacovski - Technical Director of Millennium SA
USYS National League Elite 64 features year-round competition in six age groups (13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U and 18/19U) for the top 64 boys clubs and top 64 girls clubs in the country. The annual competition calendar includes the league season and national showcases with direct pathway to the USYS National Championships.
Thanks to partnerships with world leaders in their respective fields, Elite 64 players have access to tools and technology to capture key information that can be shared with college coaches and professional scouts — making every game a recruitable moment.
As the elite club-based platform in the USYS National League, Elite 64 clubs have access to other USYS and National League competitions, such as the National League Conferences and National League P.R.O., to create a complete developmental pathway within a single organization.
The competition format will include our 2005/2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011 top teams playing against the same club on the same day at the same location.
Teams play up to 14 league games (7 Home & 7 Away) over a 10-month season, with a schedule created to aid the players' periodization and involvement in high school soccer. Multiple scheduling options are available to accommodate travel concerns and allow for clubs to complete their league season in the most sensible way possible.
