The new rule is: may hold tryouts on April 1st or after provided certain guidelines are met (e.g. all tryouts must be publicly posted and players remain bound to their existing club for the balance of the current seasonal year). The seasonal year is either the completion of State Cup play at the end of May or June 10 (Waiting to get clarification on the date from FYSA). As the current rule reads….A player may attend a publicly advertised tryout starting April 1st but would not be able to join that team/club until the end of the seasonal year (late May or early June).
USA wins against Raisa 7-0!
This game was played by USA 17 & 18 year olds from 5 clubs in our league.
Congratulations to all who participated.
TWO USA LEAGUE PLAYERS CHOSEN FOR BROOKE HOUSE SCHOLARSHIP
Congratulations to USA League players Julio Plata Gonzalez and Patrick Callahan who were selected by Brooke House College Soccer Director Mickey Adams. Brooke House Coaching director Mickey Adams selected winners of full scholarships to the Brooke House College Football Academy. The $40 000.00 academic and football scholarship will allow Julio and Patrick to follow their dream of becoming a professional footballer while continuing their education in England.
USA League is incredibly proud of Julio and Patrick and who stand behind in support. Mickey Adams and Lawrie Dudfeld spent three nights evaluating players who play in the USA league. The talent was deep and after consultation with the leadership at Brooke House College, it was decided to award two scholarships. Julio Plata Gonzalez from FC Tampa Rangers and Patrick Callahan from Florida Spirit received the scholarship awards from Brooke House College Marketing Director Caroline Blackshaw.
Congratulations to USA’s U17G Winter Haven Kicks – WINNERS of the Orlando City Cup Tournament, this past weekend. This team played up against Orlando City’s U18G team and won 2-1 in the finals! Overall record was 3 wins and 1 tie. Another example of the quality teams we have in USA 🙂

Every year, the United Soccer Association selects deserving high school seniors that have played in USA and awards them a $500 grant to be used for higher education. This year, 10 recipients were selected, for a total of $5000. Additionally, all players selected and their families, were treated to the Tampa Bay Rowdies game on June 4th and then called to the field at halftime, to be recognized. It was an enjoyable evening for all and not sure who enjoyed it more, the grant recipients or the USA Board members! Click here for more photos of the event!
