The US Youth Soccer National Championship Series is the country's most prestigious national youth soccer tournament, providing approximately 185,000 players on over 10,000 teams from US Youth Soccer State Associations the opportunity to showcase their soccer skills against the best competition in the nation while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and fair play.

Each year DYSA hosts the Delaware State Cup for teams that would like the chance to represent Delaware at the Region 1 National Championship Series. The State Cup champion advances to the US Youth Soccer Region I Championships. Regional champions advance to compete in US Youth Soccer National Championships in late July.

Participating teams must be registered with DYSA and have competed in a qualifying league.
