SUPER Y-LEAGUE

 

In 1999 the Super Y-League was formed to develop the top percentage of youth soccer players throughout the United States.  The Super Y-League brings together the best possible players within each city to compete against teams of similar talent within their region in a home and away format.  The USL is positioning the Super Y-League to be the most competitive youth league in the United States.  


The SYL is geared towards the elite level player between the ages of 14 and 19.  Rules allow for expanded roster sizes, no recruiting restrictions and the club pass system.  The SYL is a week in - week out league.  A heavy importance is focused on home and away series, for competitive reasons.  The League wants to promote quality play rather than overplay.  An extended league format is a better alternative for these players because it does not overload their play.  The number of quality matches without overloading a player is the most important aspect to player development.


In August of 2002, the Super Y-League was officially granted ODP status by the United States Olympic Committee and U.S. Soccer.  The designation of these ODP programs will further advance the opportunities for elite players that aspire to compete at the international level. 
Super Y-League (SYL) teams now have an opportunity to contend in a national cup competition with US Club Soccer (USCS).  


There are over 100 clubs involved nationally in the Super “Y” League.
