SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Good 4 Utah) -  La Roca U14 is the third Utah team to ever make it to the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series held July 22-27 in Maryland.
Only eight teams from each age group in the country qualify for Nationals, so making it there is a huge honor. They qualified for nationals by achieving the following: 2014 Far West Regionals Finalist, 2014 Desert Premier League Champions, 2014 Utah State Champions.

The team has also won the Utah State Cup Champions four years in a row (2011, 2012, 1013, and 2014).

La Roca U14 was also just notified last week that they have been selected as one of 16 teams across the nation who get to play in the National League next season. That means they'll be traveling and playing all over the country. 

The team still needs to raise $13,000 or more for Nationals—check out there fundraising campaign here.
