What is the Super Y-league?
The Super Y-League is a professionalized system that is the first step for developing youth soccer players in North America . Affiliated with US Soccer and partnered with US Club Soccer, the league is designed for talented youth players destined for professional or international careers. Northern Virginia Royals and Majestics Super Y teams benefit from the same commitment to excellence that characterizes our professional team, it is an essential step to a youth player’s “Path to the Pros.”

Which Clubs compete in the Super Y-League?
Over 100 clubs throughout North America compete annually for a National Championship. This year, the Royals and Majestics will compete in the South Atlantic Region. The clubs are as follows: Altanta Silverbacks Jrs., Carolina Dynamo, Charlotte Soccer Club, Raleigh CASL Elite Jrs., Richmond Kickers, Richmond Strikers, Triangle FC., and SC Fredericksburg.

When does the Super Y-League Season run?
The season consists of approximately 8 - 12 games. The majority of games are played during the summer from June to August, with the North American Finals being held every November. In 2007, the Northern Virginia U14, U16, and U17 Royals and Northern Virginia U16 Majestics advanced to the North American Finals.

What are the age brackets for the Super Y-League?
There will be teams from U13 through U17 for both boys and girls. The Super Y-League uses the same age brackets defined by birth date as the USYSA (Aug 1 to July 31). The age bracket you currently participate in with your club would be the age bracket you tryout for.

How do I register for tryouts?
E-mail for the Royals Super Y League teams and for the Majestics Super Y League teams. Preliminary tryouts begin in December and final tryouts are completed in May. If you are interested in a tryout for one of the teams send your name to the e-mail listed above.

How many players will be selected for each Super Y-League team?
Depending on the quality of each tryout group 16 - 24 players will be selected. The players will compete for the 18-player roster that will be selected for each game day. We pick these numbers to fill the most competitive 18-man roster and still allow our players to take some time off during the summer months for vacations.

What is the commitment?
Training will start at the end of May and continue through the first week in August. Ideally, practices will be at least twice a week but based upon age of team and League schedule will be at the discretion of the coach.

What if they have a conflict with their club team?
We are not meant to compete with the club teams, but rather be a complement to them. In the case of a conflict, the player will be encouraged to go to their respective club’s activity; however, the final decision lies with the player and parent.

Where will the teams train and play home games?
Both training and home games will primarily take place in Prince William County; however, other facilities and fields may be used as necessary.

Who will coach and train the teams?
Northern Virginia Soccer will choose high level coaches from throughout the region and players will be trained by guest trainers during the season.

What uniforms will the Super Y-League teams use?
Super Y-League uniforms are included in the player’s fees. Each player will receive a uniform kit from Adidas - the official uniform supplier of the Royals (Super 20, Men’s PDL and Division 2) and Majestics( Super 20 and W-league teams)
