US Youth Soccer experienced significant growth in 2014 US Youth Soccer, the largest youth sports organization in the country, has reported a 9 percent increase (250,000+) in its membership over the past year — a figure the association believes is indicative of the growing interest in soccer across the United States and the excitement generated by the 2014 FIFA World Cup in addition to improved programs for associations. In 2014, US Youth Soccer saw its annual registration grow to 3,055,148, meaning that more than 4 percent of the U.S. population 18 years old and younger played US Youth Soccer. The growth included new players and players returning to the association.
