The mission of the Florida Youth Soccer Association is to identify players for our men’s and women’s Youth National Teams. The selection process takes place through state, regional and national events.
The primary benefit to the player is to be able to train, play, and compete against the best players in their age group. This allows the best players to be with the best in order to further their development as soccer players.
Our State Staff is comprised of professional, college, high school, and club coaches. All of these coaches are nationally licensed by US Soccer. It is the goal of our staff to conduct these trials in a fair and impartial manner.
