This event is for teams that wish to advance to the East Region National Championship Series in Barboursville/Charleston, WV.

National Championship Series- is held each year in the East region for teams that have competed in their state cup tournament.  We have not held a state tournament  in recent years due to lack of interest.  This year the regional tournament will be held in Barboursville and Charleston WV, June 24 to 30. This tournament is for ages U12 to U19 both boys and girls.

If your team is interested in attending the regional tournament and representing DE, please email the  by March 15th.  Should 2 or more teams in an age group be interested, DYSA will schedule a game between the teams to determine a champion to represent DE at the regional tournament.  We would not charge a fee for the game; however, teams would be responsible for ref fees.  The team that advances to the regional tournament will be responsible for the entry fee.  Entry fees are $800 for U12 teams and $1100 for U13 and above.

New this year-in addition to college coaches in attendance, the region will be hosting a college night for players and parents.
