More than 140 teams competed since March to make it to Sunday’s finals. The next stop for the team is the US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup Region I Championships in Manchester, New Hampshire beginning on Friday, May 24.

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer was awarded a wildcard for this age group, Berks Rage Athletica will also be representing Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer at the US Youth Soccer Region I Presidents Cup Championships.
The Presidents Cup is designed for those teams seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title. The cup provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community from the state to regional to national levels of US Youth Soccer.
