National League teams claim 7 titles at 2021 USYS Far West Regionals


FRISCO, Texas (June 28, 2021) — Teams from the US Youth Soccer National League produced standout results at the 2021 USYS Far West Regional Championships in Boise, Idaho, as they captured seven of 14 Regional titles.

The Desert Conference was the lone National League Conference to be represented in Boise, as both the Pacific Conference and Northwest Conference were unable to hold competition in the 2020-21 season due to Covid-19. Despite that fact, the National League made a significant impact at the Far West Regionals through the performance of the Desert Conference teams.

In all, 16 of the 56 semifinalists were teams that competed in the Desert Conference during the 2020-21 season. Eleven of those teams advanced to the finals and seven captured Far West Regional Championships.
