Welcome to the 2015 Maryland Presidents Cup
Victor Della Mea - 2015 Presidents Cup Director


This US Youth Soccer event gives our teams the opportunity to compete at state, regional and national levels. For 2015, we have continued the U12 boys and girls bracket. It is broadly accepted that this age group is peaking in the player development process, and we feel it is an excellent opportunity for these teams to "test their mettle". The primary intention of this tournament is to engage the approximately two-thirds of our travel teams which are not as likely to win a state championship title.

The 2015 MSYSA Presidents Cup application is scheduled to become available in early January 2015 with applications closing mid-March.  The Presidents Cup draw is scheduled to occur in mid-April.  It is mandatory that all teams send a representative to the Presidents Cup draw.

All games are scheduled to be played in scenic Hagerstown at the Hagerstown Soccer Club’s soccer park.  Please continue to check the MSYSA website for a complete schedule of dates and times.  Over the course of the tournament weekends, updates and alerts on scores, weather, schedule adjustments and other pertinent matters will be posted on our website as close to real time as possible. Also, it is extremely important to review and study the tournament rules found on the Presidents Cup page of the website.

We are very excited to bring this event to Maryland’s greater community of competitive soccer teams and promise you an environment of fun, great competition and sportsmanship. Remember! Your team’s hard work can earn it the distinguished privilege to play teams from other states in the 2015 Presidents Cup Regional Championship Tournament scheduled for May 23-25, 2015 at Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania.  U13-U17 Regional winners will then compete in Overland Park, Kansas for the National title in your age group.

We look forward to an overall superior soccer experience!

Important Presidents Cup Rule Change
Presidents Cup Qualifying Leagues

At the October 2014 MSYSA Executive Board meeting, a motion was made by the MSYSA Presidents Cup Committee that the 2015 MSYSA Presidents Cup rules be adopted.  As such, Rule 2.1.3., as listed in the 2014 Presidents Cup rules, would be eliminated.  This rule stated that “MSYSA will accept teams that play in a mixed US Youth Soccer and other US Soccer Federation member league as long as the team plays in a US Youth Soccer only division.”

The MSYSA maintains a strong sense of fairness and equity, and as such, considered the ramifications of limiting Presidents cup qualifying leagues.  It was agreed that since the opportunity to play in a winter and spring league was a viable option and that maintaining the integrity of the MSYSA Presidents Cup and the Presidents Cup Series was of extreme importance, that MSYSA would only consider leagues that consisted of USYSA-only teams as an MSYSA Presidents Cup qualifying league.  This motion was voted upon and passed by the MSYSA Executive Board.
