Whereas nearly 14,000,000 children play soccer in this country every year, 
        making it the most popular youth team sport in country;
Whereas United States Youth Soccer is the largest organized soccer organization 
        for youth, with over 3,200,000 registered players;
Whereas the Maryland SoccerPlex is a state-of-the-art, 24-field, soccer complex 
        in Germantown, Maryland and is home of the National Championships in 
        2002 and 2003;
Whereas approximately 1000 teams entered the national competition, representing 
        all 50 states divided into four regions of the country, with the final 
        48 teams to be competing at the Maryland SoccerPlex on July 23-28;
Whereas a total of 864 players and 192 coaches and administrators will compete 
        at the National Championships;
Whereas the National Champions will be crowned in 12 different divisions, with 
        boys and girls competing in Under-14 through Under-19 age groups;
Whereas the United States Soccer Federation initiated the youth championships in 
        1935 with what is now known as the James P. McGuire Cup (for U-19 Boys), 
        and since its creation in 1974, United States Youth Soccer has added 11 
        additional divisions to the Youth Championship Tournament, with the U-14 
        and U-15 boys and girls championships being the most recently added in 
        2001; and
Whereas the Bethesda Eclipse, the Bethesda Fury, the Bethesda Alliance, and the
