U13 Boys off to Kansas
US Youth Soccer Region II Presidents Cup – U13 Boys off to Kansas
The U13 Boys Red, coached by Brian Schmidt, team will play in Presidents Cup Regionals June 15-19 in Overland Park (Kansas City), Kansas. Wisconsin competes in Region II comprised of 13 states. The team will play Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio South in group play, although specific teams from those states are not yet known. The games will be played at the all turf Scheel’s Overland Park complex. There are 12 teams competing in the U13 boys division and 114 teams in total competing in the tournament. Winners of the event at each age qualify for National Presidents Cup next month in Auburndale, Florida.
This is a great opportunity for the team to test its skill and development against the champions from other states. The competition will be excellent. The team qualified with a 3-2 victory over Lakeshore United U13 Navy in the final of the Wisconsin State Presidents Cup in May. The tournament events will determine the regional qualifiers that will compete in the US Youth National Presidents Cup. Winners in the U13-U17 boys and girls groups will vie for the national title. It’s fantastic for PS United to have a State Champion and the boys are excited for the opportunity and experience the regional event will provide.
