MYSA hosts and administers the State Championships for boys’ and girls’ teams of all ages U11 through U19, in competitive “Classic” divisions (C1, C2 and C3). Minnesota Youth Soccer State Championships are open to any MYSA Competitive team who registers for the event. Registration takes place in a team’s MYSA Affinity account. Awards are given to the first and second place teams.
New this year: Automatic Bids and Play-in Games
League bracket winners, who register for the post season, automatically advance to the pool play stage of the Championships. All other teams who register for post season will be seeded into single elimination play-in games as a pathway to the pool play stage. These play-in games are scheduled based on geographical location of the teams and if they choose to host games.
Play-in games will be played between July 12–16. This stage of the Championships replaces the former need for neutral site district tournaments. Under the new format, teams will have opportunities to train between games and will avoid multiple games in a day.
Pool play will consist of three guaranteed games with group winners advancing to championship day. In larger age flights where 12 teams partake in pool play, semifinals will be played to determine who advances championship games.
