Indigenous Soccer Cup

The Indigenous Soccer Cup (ISC) is a culmination of positive youth development programming for Native youth ages 10-19, with efforts to promote healthy lifestyles. Over the years, more than 800 Native youth from local, national, and international Native communities have joined SYS in a weeklong celebration of Native culture, soccer, wellness, youth leadership training, life skills, and college prep workshops.

The Indigenous Soccer Cup is in compliance with the USSF rules and regulations, being played in a round robin format. A round robin format allows teams to collect points depending on how many wins, ties, or losses they have. Once a team reaches the playoff and championship level, a single elimination rule is implemented.

The ISC is recognized as a National Native Youth Leadership Conference and is coming into its eleventh year.
