The 2017-18 US Youth Soccer National League season, which features 14U-18U teams, began Nov. 30 with the opening weekend for the girls, while the boys begin Dec. 7. All games will take place in Wilson, N.C., and Rocky Mount, N.C.
The National League is designed to reward teams for developing elite talent and earning success in US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues and Regional Championships, as the top finishing teams in these competitions directly qualify for the National League. Once in the National League, the top teams from each age group division qualify to the US Youth Soccer National Championships, and secure a spot to return to National League play the following season.
FC Dallas 00 Che
FC Dallas 00 Che turned some heads last season when they finished in second place of the National League White division in just their first appearance, and the 2017 North Texas State Cup finalists will look for a first-place finish with a year of National League experience under their belts. FC Dallas only surrendered four goals in seven National League games last season, which was tied for second least in the age group.

FC Dallas will now look to add a National League title to a mantle that already features North Texas State Cup, US Youth Soccer Southern Regional Premier League (SRPL) West and Southern Regional Championship titles.
