The United Soccer Coaches (USC) League announced today the teams advancing to the National Finals in July.  The USC is part of the National Premier League (NPL) which encompases 20 leagues across the United States. From those 20 leagues,  League Champions and Runner Ups advance straight to the National Finals. 

 

The Austin Texans have 4 teams advancing to Colorado.  "This is a huge accomplishment for these 4 teams, the coaches and our Club" says Club Director JD Cochran.  

The 04B team has advanced to the 2020 ENPL National Playoffs which will be held June 25-July 1 in Commerce City, CO, featuring 13-U through 19-U League Champions. Upon advancement they will attend the 2020 ENPL National Finals that will be held July 9-13 at the same location in Colorado: DICK'S Sporting Goods Park.

The 07G, 03G, and the 02G Black have all advanced to the National Cup Finals held July 17-21 in Colorado. US Club Soccer’s cup-based national championship competition proudly celebrates the National Cup XIX in summer 2020, as the 19th edition of the popular tournament.  The National Cup XIX Finals will be held at DICK'S Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. Teams in 13-U through 18/19-U age groups advance to the National Cup XIX Finals by winning a National Cup XIX Regional or through qualifying state cups. Titles are awarded in two divisions: Super Group (most competitive) and Premier Group. 

 

Thoughts from our coaching staff.  

"I am delighted for the 07G team.  "The girls overcame adversity this spring with massive amounts of injuries, yet still qualified for a National tournament. They came together to win when necessary due to their close knit group and tough character.  The girls held their standards high and kept themselves and teammates accountable for their performances. Very proud of this team of young ladies!" Simon Sanchez 07G

 

"It is a very exciting opportunity for the girls to be part of this experience", Albert Flores Austin Texans 03G.

 

"It is exciting for 02G Black to qualify for the National Cup Finals.  This team is a special group of players who are committed to their craft and to each other.  The team not only went undefeated in league play, but also succeeded in accomplishing a team goal that every player (all 18 players, goalkeepers included) will score at least one goal this year.  I would like to express my gratitude to all of the parents for everything they do to help shape a great team culture and environment.  We are all thrilled and looking forward to Colorado." Jessica Kim 02G Black

 

“Congrats to the boys for winning the USC Champions League for the 3rd consecutive year, outstanding achievement of this dedicated and talented team. We’re very much looking forward to competing at the ENPL Playoffs/Finals again and hopefully can land a coup this year!” Kai Gockell 04B
