The Piedmont Conference is one of 13 conferences that fall under the scope of the US Youth Soccer Leagues Program and operate at a multi-state level—providing high-level competition on a consistent basis at a targeted local level (North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and parts of Tennessee).
The Piedmont Conference’s Premier I Division tier offers its teams an opportunity to qualify for the following season’s National League. In addition to providing a pathway to qualifying for the National League, the Piedmont Conference provides teams with a chance to advance to the US Youth Soccer Southern Regional Championships, which are held annually each summer.
Note: Beginning in the 2020-21 seasonal year, the Piedmont and Sunshine Conferences will compete as one Conference. This modification will further enhance the quality and value of the Conference while supporting development and qualification pathways at the state association level.
The US Youth Soccer Leagues Program provides annual league competitions at the multi-state and national tiers for the highest levels of boys and girls teams in US Youth Soccer.
The multi-state tier of competition is comprised of US Youth Soccer Conferences. The Conference structure debuted in the 2018-19 season, replacing what was previously known as the US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues.
