Registration is now open for New Jersey Youth Soccer’s Fall 2022 State Cup single elimination competitions in the 11U-14U age groups, which includes the National Championship Series, Presidents Cup and Challenge Cup.


Note: Generally only the top flighted CU team should participate. Participation is typically in the Challenge Cup for CU teams.




To register for a State Cup competition, teams will apply to the NJ Youth Soccer State Cup - Fall 2022 (11U-14U) tournament on Sports Connect, where they will indicate a preferred flight based on their league flighting. To ease the administrative burden for club administrators and coaches, NJ Youth Soccer will use a single registration to manage all three tournaments.


Registration is available until August 29th. For assistance in the registration process, please contact  .

About the NJ Youth Soccer State Cups

The National Championship Series is the country’s most prestigious national youth soccer tournament, providing winners from each state the opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline, and fair play. This competition level is primarily for teams competing in the National League P.R.O. and National League Conferences Premier I & II.

  • Fees: 11U-12U (9v9) - $240 per team*
  • Fees: 13U-14U (11v11) - $240 per team*


The Presidents Cup is a national tournament that is designed to create a high-level competition for teams that are looking to play against teams of similar abilities, where those teams that advance will play for a regional or possibly a national title. This competition level is primarily for teams competing in EDP Premier III, IV, and V.

  • Fees: 11U-12U (9v9) - $240 per team*
  • Fees: 13U-14U (11v11) - $240 per team*


The Challenge Cup is a tournament that was successfully introduced this past year and hosts travel teams in the U11 to U14 age groups in the fall, with the U15 through 18/19U age groups participating in the spring. This state-only tournament is designed to create a challenging and enjoyable event for teams that do not play in the National Championship Series or Presidents Cup. This competition is primarily for teams competing in CJYSA-EDP Premier VI-XI, MCYSA, Metro, MOSA, and MNJYSA.

  • Fees: 11U-12U (9v9) - $190 per team*
  • Fees: 13U-14U (11v11) - $190 per team*


NOTE: Players and teams may only enter one State Cup competition each seasonal year. Preliminary matches are hosted by one of the competing teams, while the semifinals and finals are scheduled by NJ Youth Soccer at a neutral site.  Registration for the 15U through 19U age groups is expected to open this Fall with tournament games taking place in the Spring of 2023.


*Teams that apply after August 29th are not guaranteed acceptance and may be subject to additional late fees.
