The CONCACAF Women's Under-20 tournament is a football (soccer) competition for women's national teams under 20 years in North America, Central America and Caribbean region, and is the qualification tournament for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.

Originally contested as an under-19 event in conjunction with FIFA's standards in 2002 and 2004, the CONCACAF U-20 Women's Championship is staged every two years with three teams qualifying for the biennial World Cup, except in 2002 where only the group stage was played and the two first place finishers qualified directly to the youth world cup.

CONCACAF's championship is an eight-team event with the three nations from North America, joined by three from the Caribbean and two from Central America.
