The KCSG Academy 04 Girls completed a very successful 2018/19 season. Their success over the course of the year has allowed the Academy 04 Girls team to earn a coveted spot in the U16 National Tier of the USYS National League for this upcoming Winter.
The National Tier consists of the best 32 teams in the country that compete over the Winter and Spring with a chance to auto-qualify for the US Youth National Championships that will be taking place at Scheels Soccer Complex in Overland Park, KS in July of 2020.
The girls earned their spot by finishing in the Top 4 of the Midwest Conference Division of the National League in the Fall of 2018.
The girls had a great Fall season capped off in October with their 2nd straight Kansas State Cup Championship which sent them on to the Midwest Regionals in Saginaw, MI.
With many of the girls garnering interest from all levels of college coaches, the team was invited to play in Lakewood Ranch, FL in January of 2019 at the National League College Showcase as the team continued its success with a 3-0 record against other teams vying for the opportunity to be in the USYS National Tier League.
The girls will travel to Wilson, North Carolina on December 5-8 to begin their National Tier games and then complete their National League season on January 10-12 in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. The team will be the only girls team representing Kansas Youth Soccer and the KC Area in the upcoming year.
Congratulations to the girls and coach Dan Brown on their continued hard work and commitment to becoming better players. KC Scott Gallagher is proud of you and all you accomplished. We can’t wait for next season to continue to follow your journey at the highest level!
