The United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) is a national organization and sanctioning body for amateur soccer in the United States. It consists of 55 state organizations as well as regional and national leagues. The USL's Premier Development League and the National Premier Soccer League are USASA-affiliated but are designed to promote a higher lever of competition than the state organizations. USASA also affiliates the Women's Premier Soccer League, one of the top women's leagues in the nation. USASA has over 250,000 adult members within its leagues and teams.


State and local associations operate leagues under the umbrella of the USASA. The national organization is split into four regions:

Region I

Region II

Region III

Region IV

Amateur Championships[edit]

In 2013, USASA held a competition to pit the champions of the different men's amateur competitions against each other for the title of "USA National Amateur Champions". The event was repeated in 2014, this time adding a bracket for women's amateur competition champions, though the women's bracket did not return for the 2015 edition. The trophy for the Amateur Championships is known as the Hank Steinbrecher Cup.
