With the 2016 North American Super Y League Finals 53 days away from kicking off, the U12 group pairings have been revealed.
There will be three groups – Group A, Group B and Group C – comprised of four teams each for both the U12 Girls' and U12 Boys' tournaments during the SYL Finals from Dec. 9-13 at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Across all U12 age groups for the competition in Bradenton, 24 players who competed in the summer were named to the 2016 SYL National Player Pool.
Teams will play each team in the group once. There will be five game slots each day: 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. ET. Competing in the North American Finals is another great opportunity to be placed in the SYL National Pool for a chance to participate in the USL Experience, hosted by the United Soccer League's San Antonio FC, in April 2017.
Group play will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, while the semifinals kick off on Monday. The finals will cap off the five-day format on Tuesday.
