The Soccer Youth All-American Series includes some of the best players in the country playing together on teams competing in tournament play. Each All-American event features hundreds of players from all around the nation. The All-American Series is one the nation’s most prestigious youth soccer events for individual players. Series locations are conducted in key locations across the United States.
Plus, playing in the All-American Series at all locations gives each player the opportunity to be selected as one of the TOP PLAYERS from each event, allowing participation in the All-American Golden Cup held each winter in Naples, Florida. From there, players are selected from the Golden Cup for the All-American Super Cup in Phoenix, Arizona and earn the recognition as one of the “NATION’S BEST PLAYERS” for the year.
Open to any player (boys and girls) with a birth year between 2006-2016. For game play, players are placed on teams by birth year, and if necessary, could be combined with other ages.

Our Performance Training offers a unique opportunity for players to go through a two-hour training session on the field a day before the event begins. The training consists of speed, agility, coordination, and technical exercises, as well as game-realistic drills to get your player ready for the week ahead. Our training sessions are conducted by performance enhancement specialists. All players must register in advance to reserve a spot. Cost is $65 per player. Only 60 spots available per session. Plus, all players attending the training session will be able to check-in early and receive their All-American Kits. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
Our All-American Series locations now feature a Player Card Combine during the event allowing the players to participate in six different skill testing stations to determine their stats for their official Soccer Youth Player Card, like what you might see with a FIFA card.
The Player Card Combine is a great way to determine where your player stands in comparison to other players from around the country in your players age group. A scaled rating system based on the specific birthyear and gender of the player is used to determine the scores.
All players cards (in a digital format) will be released after all the summer events are completed. Plus, if attending our Golden Cup and Super Cup events while participating in the Player Card Combine, all players have the opportunity to get their card BOOSTED!
Podiumwear provides two custom jerseys, a pair of shorts, socks and a swag bag for each All-American player. Men’s, Women’s, and Youth sizes are offered for better fit.
