All eyes will be on 2019 USYS National Championship finalist Pa Dominion FC 04 Rangers in the 17U Premier I Division. The Eastern PA side comes into the Spring season with a 4-0-0 record, and it is on a mission to return to USYS National Championships in 2021. The 2019 EPYSA State Cup finalist, Lower Merion SC Invictus, and 2021 National League Playoffs participant PDA Hibernian Modric 2004 are two of the teams who will be looking to overtake PA Dominion in the standings this Spring.
Philadelphia SC Coppa Rage 05 has already clinched its spot at the 2021 USYS National Championships after going 3-0-0 at the National League Playoffs in North Carolina. As Philadelphia SC Coppa looks to prove why they are the region's top team during league play, the top teams in New Jersey and Pennsylvania will be looking to knock off Coppa to earn their spot in Regionals and have their own pathway to advancing to the National Championships.
“This Conference is very competitive and every team really beats up on each other. Coach (Colin) Koch has the boys playing a really good brand of soccer right now. The boys are bought in and have the fire back from the 2019 run. We have our eyes on one thing this spring: The USYS National Championship” - Marc Meoli, PA Dominion FC
