“The National Championship Committee unanimously supports this initiative to allow players an
additional chance to raise a US Youth Soccer National Championship trophy,” said Bob Hart, Chair, USYS National Championship Committee.

the 2021 Presidents Cup competitions, which were cancelled this past year through no fault of their
own,” said Will Maffit, Chair, National Presidents Cup Committee.
