The Region I Champions League provides an opportunity for the most competitive teams in US Youth Soccer Region I to play each other on a scheduled basis while also competing for placement in the prestigious US Youth Soccer Regional Championships, as well as the US Youth Soccer National League.

The National League is an extension of the highly successful US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues (Region I Champions League, Region II Midwest Regional League, Region III Southern Premier League and Region IV Far West Regional League). Each league provides the best localized matchups and an opportunity for advancement to play at the national level — giving players great opportunities for development while facing top competition.

The teams who have qualified for the Region I Championships help make up the 32 Region I Champions League sides who have also earned their place into the National League for the 2016-17 season. The Region I Champions League Playoff winners and finalists in the Under-13 and Under-17 age groups have qualified for next year’s National League, while the first- through fourth-place teams in the Under-14 through Under-16 age groups have also earned a berth into the 2016-17 National League.
