State League Announced

State League Announced

IYSA is excited to announce the formation of a new state-wide league called the Idaho State League. 

In realizing the opportunity from the impact that COVID has had, and how we as a State andIYSA Primary Logo as a Nation, are coming out of COVID restrictions, IYSA recognized the opportunity to work on and provide an updated State Cup pathway to address the current needs of the membership as well as our diverse geography.

This pathway is best suited to follow the current PDI’s(Player Development Initiatives), accommodate the number of Spring Tournament options many of our Idaho Clubs host and attend, help alleviate the additional demand on referees locally for weekly games, and address the fact that local leagues are no longer competitive at many ages for our top teams.

This also helps create an earlier qualification timelines and preparation periods for Far West Presidents Cup and Far West Regionals. Idaho is currently the last of the West Region State’s to qualify for a regional event.

Through a lot of conversations with neighboring states, US Youth Soccer Leadership, and the IYSA Technical Advisory Committee, the Idaho State league was created. This will be implemented for the 2023 season.

Here is a link to the Idaho State League format. This is for the 2023 Season.

 A couple of commonly asked items:

  • This will not have an impact on the local leagues provided in each area, those will still run for the 2023 season.

  • Those playing in State League do not have to play in their local league, but they can.

  • Application for the league will be released after State Cup 2022 completion.

  • Fall League options will remain the same in each area.
