USL YOUTH

What is USL Youth

USL Youth is a new integrated platform designed to elevate the youth player experience by inspiring, educating, and engaging.

The USL Youth platform fosters an inclusive youth soccer community through events, content, and experiences. The centerpiece is a high-level national competition that complements the existing youth soccer infrastructure and culminates in the annual USL Youth Finals in Tampa Fl in December.

USL Youth meets players, coaches, and families where they are in their soccer journey, connecting the youth soccer community with the broader USL ecosystem of professional and pre-professional clubs.

USL Youth aims to provide anyone in the youth soccer community with the opportunity to reach their desired level.

Evolving from the historic Super Y League, USL Youth aligns the USL’s Youth initiatives and the full USL ecosystem’s youth-to-pro pathway.

It focuses on building and engaging a vibrant youth soccer community through events, content, and experiences, providing an integral step in the soccer journey of players, coaches, clubs, and families.

USL Youth aims to meet you where you are on your soccer journey and support youth soccer development.

USL Pathway

As Inter CT FC, we are delighted to be able to take part in the USL Youth with our badge. We look forward to offering players the opportunity to start in the USL Pathway to Pro with us and help them on their journey to the Academy and, hopefully, into the Pro League one day.

As with the Super Y League, the centerpiece of the USL YOUTH platform remains a high-level national competition that complements our country’s existing youth soccer infrastructure and provides clubs with opportunities to face different opponents than they do in their regular leagues.

The competition culminates with the USL Youth Finals, a tentpole event in the youth soccer calendar that gives players a unique major tournament experience and a chance to win a national championship

One of Only Two CT teams in the League

Inter CT FC is proud to be only one of two clubs in CT to be accepted into the USL Youth League. With our structure, coaching levels, player ability, and facilities, Inter CT FC was chosen as a USL Youth Club for its inaugural season. Along  With our friends at AC CT, we know that we will represent CT soccer as best we can. 

We have been looking at ways to improve our summer programming, and what better way than doing an elite-level league? Instead of some low-level summer tournaments. If you want to test yourself against the best in US soccer, complete our registered interest in USL Youth below.
