Criteria: Soccer America selects the top 20 clubs, based on success of their teams in national youth championships over the last three years and national recognition for players (including U.S. national youth team selections and U.S. Youth Soccer ODP Interregional All-Stars) from these clubs in 2006.

13 BETHESDA SC. The Maryland club returns to the Boys Top 20 after a one-year absence and has been a fixture in the Girls Top 20 since the inception of Soccer America's Best Club rankings in 2004. Bethesda's United and Roadrunner teams won Region I titles in 2006. The Roadrunners captured the U-15 showcase division at the '06 Disney's Soccer Showcase. Three United players Kevin Huang, Nirav Kadam and Jesse Rodriguez went to the adidas ESP camp. Rising Star: Jordan Manley was picked to the Thanksgiving Interregional all-stars.


Cheers to the Roadrunners coaching staff for preparing and inspiring the team for big wins at Regionals and Disney, helping propel BSC back into the SA Boys Top 20.
