Jefferson Cup kicking off 2017 event with U10-U15 Boys Weekend
The 2017 Jefferson Cup is set to begin with the U10-U15 Boys Weekend kicking off the four-weekend event from March 11-12, as more than 330 high level teams from around the country compete in the 2002-2007 age groups.
The field of teams for the event’s first of four weekends includes more than 50 reigning US Youth Soccer and US Club Soccer state champion teams. The U10-U15 Boys Weekend will feature top teams from some of the nation’s most challenging leagues, including the US Youth Soccer National League and various US Youth Soccer regional leagues, as well as US Club Soccer’s National Premier Leagues, the Elite Development Program and the Club Champions League, among others.
As part of an ongoing partnership between the Jefferson Cup and US Club Soccer, some 200 teams representing NPLs around the country will compete in the event over the course of the next four weekends. There are more than 20 NPL member leagues spread throughout the country, each hosting some of the top competition in their respective regions. Once again, this year’s Jefferson Cup will play host to a wide list of reigning state, regional and national champions of the NPL.
Games will be played across 21 of the top artificial turf and natural grass field locations in Virginia, including multiple-time ECNL National Finals host West Creek Complex, Striker Park, RiverCity Sportsplex, Bryan Park, Capital Park, Collegiate School – Robins Campus, Dorey Park, James City County Community Center, Longdale Youth Training Center, Poor Farm Park, Pole Green Park, Randolph Macon College, Mary B. Stratton Park, Ukrops Park, United Training Center, University of Richmond, Virginia Soccer Training Center, Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center and Warhill Sports Complex.
As the event has continued to grow in recent years, the Jefferson Cup now includes select divisions competing outside the immediate Richmond area, at the Virginia Soccer Training Center operated by the Virginia Youth Soccer Association in Fredericksburg, and the Warhill Sports Complex in Williamsburg.
