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 for the All-American Super Cup and earn the recognition as one of the “NATION’S BEST PLAYERS” for the year.

Soccer Youth is proud to announce that we are coming out with Soccer Youth Player Cards, similar to what you might see with a FIFA card. 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 the cards. The Player Card is a good way to determine where your player stands in comparison to other players from around the country in your players age group, we will be using a scaled rating system based on the specific birthyear and gender of the player. The six drills are listed in the tabs on the right. These drills will test your players ability in six key areas of the game, showing your player where they need to improve their game.
All players cards will be released after all the summer events are completed. Plus, if selected and attending our Golden Cup and Super Cup events, those cards are BOOSTED!
Apart from the action our All-American events offer, players have the opportunity to compete in several fun skills challenges during the event. Challenges such as the Sharp Shooter and Goalkeeper Wars provide a unique experience for any player, testing their strengths in a fun environment! Any player in any position is welcome to participate in these challenges! You can sign up for these events during your initial player registration process by selecting these add-ons or REGISTER online today.
