|2013 Region #1 President's Cup Results
By: Gary Wiser
US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup is designed for those teams who are
seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar
abilities for a national title.
The cup provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that
might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of
unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community
from the state to regional to the national levels of US Youth Soccer.
We had twenty three (23) teams from Region #1 travel to Mesquite, NV to participate in UYSA's 2013 Presidents Cup
state tournament where they achieved some great results. The
tournament was divided into two periods with the U14-U17s competing in
January (the 18-21st) and the U9-U13s finishing it up over the
President's Holiday weekend (February 15th-18th).
Congratulations go out to Aggies FC '04-DC a U9 Boys team from North Logan coached by Dan Cox, the Valley Blast - Crush a U14 Girls team from Logan,
